Onism Productions was founded in rural England in 2020 with the purpose of helping to manifest unique and worthwhile music to the world, and with the belief that art is the principal reason for being.
We aim to encapsulate any music that comes from places beyond and within; that of the unusual or unreal, and with a penchant for nature, the dark and obscure. Whilst we often find these qualities in familiar genres rooted in black metal and neo-folk; we expect and indeed strive to find them anywhere. And so, of particular interest are those that blur the borders and reveal new paths.
We believe in quality over quantity, and seek to give releases the attention and promotion they deserve. Whilst we are underground and independent, we wish to impose no limits on our artists and place utmost importance on openness and honesty between all involved.
With Conquering The Infinite Void, Lord Orots invites us into his dreams and we accompany him as he wanders an endless world of hope, promise, fear and danger. The visions of Lord Orot’s dreams are brought to stunning, vivid life through four epic tracks that entwine atmospheric black metal, immersive ambient textures and the cold illusions of dungeon synth. Harsher and more dynamic than the Latzineko Erresumaren Itzulera album, in which Lord Orots revealed to us the cursed world of Latzine, Conquering The Infinite Void expands the boundaries of this remarkable recording project. However the two albums remain inextricably linked, as on the fourth and final track of Conquering The Infinite Void, ‘The Lord Rises From His Throne’, Lord Orots returns to the waking world once more, with percussive echoes of Latzineko Erresumaren Itzulera. This is a grand, musical fantasy but one which creates an intimate connection with the character of Lord Orots, drawing the listener into the mysterious existence of this solitary figure.
Presented in the evocative artwork of Joan Llopis Doménech (Sojourner, Lustre, Ruadh), Conquering The Infinite Void possesses its own unique character that will delight existing fans of Lord Orots and his slumbers, while opening up this magical world to new listeners as well. Onism Productions will reveal the gateway to Lord Orots’ realm on August 7th and an unforgettable journey awaits.
Amherawdr formed in Devon with the intention of writing heartfelt black metal music inspired by the bleak romance and mysticism of ancient Britain. A handful of songs known as The Hidden Valley sessions were composed that most likely will not see the light of day, but this creative period culminated in 2010 with the writing of 'Adorned with the Figures of Snakes', the definitive statement of that original potent intent. Recording of this album was almost completed the following year, but internal differences resulted in an amicable decline that left the band moribund. Winds change, seasons turn, dust gathers.
After a decade in the shadows, this sonic portrait of the heart of old Dumnonia is now given the release it so thoroughly deserves. 'Adorned with the Figures of Snakes' is available for pre-order on limited edition 6-panel digipack and through all digital channels now.
The band 'as was' is certainly dead and buried, but none can say whether Amherawdr may not one day give voice again.
