Bandcamp – An Update

You may remember some time ago I removed all Æþelruna music from Bandcamp due to their politicising. While I am certainly still unimpressed with them it occurs to me that limiting the ways in which you can listen to my music is condescending on my part - the choice of whether to support one platform over another should be yours. While I cannot upload Ealdgesegena due to their ban on cover songs, I have made available the Adalruna releases published to other online services last year. Once Risci Bita Wudu is released it shall also be made available from Bandcamp.

Adalruna Album Digital Re-Releases Coming in October

Ever since I decided against using BandCamp as a means to distribute my music digitally I have started using DistroKid in order to place tracks on iTunes, Spotify and various other download and streaming services. Already Ealdgesegena, a compilation featuring all tracks recorded as Æþelruna from 2011 to now is available, but during this month of October there should also become available almost all tracks recorded as Adalruna from 2006 to 2010. Included are the first two albums, Der Geheime König und die Schwarze Sonne and Cestrefeld 1362 (both originally released 2007) as well as the EP/demo...

Website (*not) to be deleted as of July 2018 (*Updated!)

I have decided (after some consideration) to cancel this website (www.aethelruna.co.uk). All of the information here can be found elsewhere and it just amounts to an unnecessary cost for me. For direct updates on Æþelruna you can still use the Facebook page. I am not currently active on any other social media and do not plan to be unless Facebook is popularly replaced by something else. I will not be posting this announcement to social media, so only those who actively come to the website will see it. I will therefore know how useful the site is by the number of objections I receive to this decision....

Ealdgesegena Update

First of all, I wanted to thank everybody that has downloaded or streamed Ealdgesegena from Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music or wherever else in the past week (thankfully, it appears searching merely for “Aethelruna” does the trick, without the need for special characters) - I hope you enjoy those songs that are in many ways quite disparate, having been recorded several years apart in some cases. In particular I wanted to thank those that helped spread my short advertisement around Facebook (which took far too many hours to make), including From Runes to Ruins who occasionally use some of my music...

Ealdgesegena released tomorrow!

Ealdgesegena, an album compiling all seven tracks recorded by Æþelruna for various promos, demos and tribute albums, should be available for download and streaming from iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, etc, from tomorrow 26/03/2018 (some services may not yet be showing it, but give it a few weeks and it should be available everywhere). This short, digital-only release closes the first chapter of Æþelruna in preparation for the release of Risci Bita Wudu, a preview of which will be available in the coming weeks. I hope you enjoy the album.
