Now Streaming: Blood and Sun's "White Storms Fall" LP (Pesanta Urfolk)

Blood and Sun

Blood and Sun

Blood and Sun is Luke Tromiczak (Maledicere) in collaboration with Thomas Ashe, Tanner Anderson (Obsequaie, Celestiial), Erik Wivinus (Thunderbolt Pagoda), and Angela Mcjunkin; Midwestern natives, with shared Heathen sympathies and ice-laden backgrounds breeding uncommon art. From this union comes the first fruit, bearing the title White Storms Fall. As plaintive as that title, Blood and Sun’s canvas is solely comprised of solemnly chiming strings and richly resonating percussion, with proud-yet-understated male voice rising (and falling) from this spare sonic latticework. A sweep of the album’s song titles (among them: “Cedar Smoke”, “Hewn”, “Veiled Lady”, “Lord of the Spring”, and most poignantly, “Slaughter the Instant”) further paints Blood and Sun’s picture in hues as bold and brilliant as their very moniker. To further complete this Ouroboros-like circle of sound and vision, the vinyl version of White Storms Fall shall feature a stunning, large-format reproductions of select works from Luke Hillestad‘s Heritage works. As the Winter gives way to Spring, there is only Blood and Sun…

Blood and Sun will also be performing at the first annual Thirst for Light: Cascadian Summer Solstice festival from June 21st – 23rd in Red Hawk Avalon, Washington.  Other performers include Draugurinn, Birch Book, Faun Fables, Waldteufel, Lasher Keen, Novemthree, Lux Interna, Night Profound, Will o’ the Wisp, Ekstasis, Weather Veins, Common Eider, King Eider, Noctooa, Nemo Dog, Utiseta, Die Geister Beschworen, Sinew, and Ämsi.
