From the 68. issue of the charming Aarni newsletter:
:: M.W.’S WORDS ::
A few short remarks for thy ADHD sensibilities:
1) Aarni currently works on two albums (plus a top secret project) – ‘Lovecraftian‘ and another, still untitled release…the main reason for this being that we grew bored with concentrating on just the HPL theme, and so needed to balance it with more varied muzack. The irritating thing with theme albums appears to be that the idea sounds great in theory, but in practice it can prove to be annoyingly labourious when it comes to actual songwriting. So, Aarni works on two releases and switches between them when the relevant mood/inspiration possesses us. We suspect that this other album can be seen as a follow-up to Bathos, in the sense of containing varied songs in different styles. Not unlike Bathos some of those tracks will also probably be more immediately accessible than the others…
2) Not surprisingly, since its release in April the Aarni/PiM Split CD has turned out to be a smash hit…so get thy copy from us! Still a plethora left in the benighted Doominvalley vaults.
3) In Aarni webshite related tidings: two recent interviews added and the FAQ page & recommended reading list updated.
4) The song ‘Land Beyond the Night’ off the Split album was recently featured on episode 120 of the Occult Of Personality podcast. Thanks go to the magus Greg!
Finally the mandatory ads – thou art what thou buyest:
A plethora of bewildering Aarni t-shirt designs and divers other merch available from the Reverbnation store.
Yogsothery – Gate I: Chaosmogonic Rituals Of Fear available from us for 10 € (includes planetwide shipping via Air Mail). The standard CD jewel case comes in an unearthly cardboard slipcase for thy edification & delight. Features an outlandish 20-page full colour booklet with liner notes and lyrics just to make thee feel special & loved. Order thine while our copies last!
A handful of autographed Rising Of Yog-Sothoth: Tribute to Thergothon double CD’s still available from us for a measly 8 euros inside the EU; 10 euros for the rest of this bizarre excuse for a planet. Costs include shipping via Flying Polyps. As an added tr00 d00m feature the double album comes in an ultra rare standard CD jewel case.
Shouldst thou feel the urge, Omnimantia EP, the Double Demo and the Aarni/Umbra Nihil split album can still be purchased as CDR’s via the Aarni webshite. As a bonus we can on demand even throw in one or more unreleased Aarni hit/miss songs.
A better idea yet would probably be to get the newly remixed and/or mastered Bathos and Omnimantia with extra goodies from Bandcamp. If thou wilt, thou canst fully listen to them prior to paying the ludicrously low price.
