So, here we are, officially into Autumn, yet the pervasive smothering of summer persists. I sing praises of death, open tomes reeking of putridity, instead of being greeted by a cold hand, inferno. Respite comes in the form of…

Ethereal Heathen Folk
After the release of “I Vølven’s Vev”, Runahild felt the time came to take a rest from Eliwagar. Her musical inspiration was leading her on new paths therefore she decided to create a side project under her artist name.
While Eliwagar is often about dreaming herself away to a long forgotten past, to the mystical land of Hyperborea which she refers to as her spiritual home, Rúnahild’s project takes deeper roots into spiritual experiences from this lifetime.
Her first album Seidgaldr (seid=old Norse type of sorcery, galdr=incantations/spell) takes partly inspiration from different drum circles she has been a part of at several occasions – celebration of the seasons, drum journey, etc – where she experienced how everyone can instantly harmonize to one an other in a very natural and deeply beautiful way. The voices being woven together on drum rythms transcending the soul with a pure feeling of extase, allowing the energies to flow freely within the self, painting landscapes to travel through.
Some songs or elements on Seidgaldr are based on improvised recordings to try to recreate the atmosphere from a drum circle when it is all about letting the energies of the moment guide the artistic work.
The main theme of this album can be described as a journey to the subconscious or to the underworld, to wander through our darkness and shadows to nurture our inner self, to create light from our wounds and to grow higher as we reach deeper.

Heathen Resistance vol.4 for 2017!
We at the Heathen Circle are hard at work aiming to create a new CD compilation for our members and supporters. A 2 CD set is what we need. Disc #1 will be all folk (neo-folk), ambient, tribal, chants, Galdr, etc. Disc #2 will be our metal bands. The labels involved are Wolftyr productions (USA/North American distribution), Pagan War (Brazil/South American distribution), and Echoes of Koliba productions (England/European distribution).
Some ground rules for this effort:
1. All registered HC members are free to submit their songs. Non-members must pay a comp. fee of $80.00 (USD). All participants will receive 10 copies once completed.
2. Please keep your submitted track under 6 minutes.
3. Preferably, all songs should be new tracks. If not, all tracks submitted must NOT have previously appeared on any CD format.
4. Before submitting, all tracks must be mixed and mastered with good quality sound. Please do NOT send us poorly recorded and unlistenable tracks. They maybe rejected from this compilation.
All songs must be submitted by March 1st 2017. Email your tracks to email@example.com.
“I Vølven’s Vev” is out now in vinyl from the German label Merlin Nose Records. You can listen to the whole album and order a copy from their bandcamp page.
You can also order the digipack right from me on the official website: http://www.eliwagar.no/…/eliwagar_i_vlvens_vev_15_euros_in…/
And the album is also out on all digital platform, including the official Eliwagar bandcamp page: https://eliwagar.bandcamp.com/album/i-v-lvens-vev
Released by Wolftyr productions & Darker than Black records.
A lot of folk influences swirrls inside this very melodic but still harsh Pagan Black Metal mélange and instruments like pipes and flutes appear often. They are written in their native Romanian Language. This record is rhapsodic and relishable, it also awakes memories of ancient cultures and cycle of myths.
Brand new album from WITCHBLOOD. CD now available.

The new website comes on the heels of enemy attacks on HC social media accounts, which resulted in the old pages’ deletion. The unreliability of social media is a hard fact of our common struggle, and though the HC page is now reborn and operating at facebook.com/theheathencircle, this main website will bring stability to the HC online presence and independence from the political-correction pride fest of social media.
Hail to our gods and ancestors, and hail to the Heathen Circle!
