Once again, IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS cements its status as an underground metal maverick with the release of GNOSIS OF THE WITCH's debut vinyl statement, Dauðr Burðr Þrysvar, set to be released as a gatefold 12" MLP. Much like its cover art, Dauðr Burðr Þrysvar is a swirling, gnawing torrent of chaos-driven yet mystical black metal, resolutely grim and hideous but nevertheless brimming with a beyond-the-shade splendor not unlike the ancient wave of Scandinavian blackened metal. An American duo, GNOSIS OF THE WITCH know neither time nor place, their invocations solely driven by the wisdom hidden within the abysmal nothingness of Ginnungagap, each of the four songs contained here a veritable spell of black magick seeking to tear asunder one's earthly bonds and crawl deep within the yawning, abyssic void. Compact and coruscating, Dauðr Burðr Þrysvar hails the dawn of a new majesty.

A makeshift encampement, in its center a large bonfire. Around it, both men and women circle, coming together in combat meditation and readying themselves and their bodies for the inevitable. Some consume select mushrooms, staring into the fire and altering their mind, leaving behind their humanness for some hours and becoming berserks in the process. Their time has come: half-naked and armed to the teeth, the heathens' battlecry resounds. The horn is blown. Their enemies do not stand a chance. David Fischer
