This conceptual and artistically groundbreaking union of like minded musicians is a rare find in this day and age, but Blood of the Black Owl And Celestiial have again assembled beneath the Bindrune banner to explore the very core of their being through ritualistic transcendence. While embracing metal as a loose framework, both artists shed the confines of tradition to step into the ever expansive world of atmosphere. Be it the Shamanic union with the spirit world and nature through the hypnotic rituals of Blood of the Black Owl, or the woodland explorations of Celestiial by way of environmental soundscapes and a moss laden drone, this split LP is unlike anything you have yet heard. Both bands are reinventing the way that you experience and feel music from the void far beyond
