Dear inmates,

Lucky 3175 A.M. to you all & for now just a brief note from the staff:

1) Green light for the Aarni t-shirt, thanks to your expressed interest in it! Our label tells us that the opaque garment will probably manifest in March-April; I shall let you know once I manage to channel more specific information. Wear it or drink it!

2) Meanwhile Aarni busies itself working on Lovecraftian and we recently completed what will possibly be the album's somewhat unnerving opening track, 'The Strange High House in the Mist'. Presently we move on to the serene 'Celephaïs', another (instrumental) song.

Currently the album looks like to be for the most part a sort of soundtrack to individual HPL stories, with emphasis on what we consider to be the pertinent ambience & atmosphere & so forth, while his poetry has inspired the album's more conventional(?) songs. Time shall tell how pnakotic this analysis is...

Wake loose,
Mawster Warjomaa

Hi honey!

1) I have put the new song Lemminkäinens Tempel online at Reverbnation, go check it out if you want a taste of how the next album will not sound. Rather the track represents a comic relief from making the third Aarni album...the tune in question is Aarni's first to feature Swedish language lyrics (except for one interjection in Finnish). This naturally fits the song's subject, which deals with the esoteric (in the widest sense of the word) theories and practices of the unwitting Finnish Discordian saint Ior Bock. Consider it a homage to the man and delusions in general.
Musically we may be looking at some sort of "tr00 doom metal" or Black Sabbath-esque ditty, done in the best possible taste of course.

The song sounds better if you perform saunasolmu aka autofellatio while listening.

2) Currently Aarni concentrates on a more serious song, also likely to be put online once finished, namely a "kalevala" folk instrumental akin perhaps to Kivijumala and/or Kesäyö from the Bathos album. This tune like the one above and 49 Angeli Boni shall hopefully also see release on CD at some point.

After the lovely folky jig Aarni promises to sink back to the maddening tentacle-ridden mucus that is the process of making our third LP Lovecraftian.

3) Our pampered underground agents are on strike because of a recent incident involving forced travel via sewers and some exceptionally unwashed Aarni fans. Because of this prudery we still haven't received trustworthy updates on the band t-shirt matter, but we will let you know asap.

Near misses,
Master Warjomaa

omnimantia is my favorite at the moment, but bathos is a good starting point. if you like one of them, you'll like them all.

From Aarni's newsletter:

:: M.W.'S WORDS ::

Greetings Frater/Soror/Neuter,

What in the name of an authentic pair of used Aleister Crowley socks?! Another newsletter issue so soon? That's right, for:

1) Emuu, yet another new Aarni song, has just been put online at Reverbnation as a Fan Exclusive for streaming and downloading. The Finnish title of this "kalevala-folkish" instrumental means "the originator/genius/totem spirit of a species". Although featuring inter alia swan-song, the track alludes to the emuu of humans rather than to that of swans...because waterfowl are the traditional holy representation of the Golden Woman manifest in the Primeval Ocean. She is the creatrix of the universe, the gods, humans etc. in Fenno-Ugric mythology. So there.

It seems very likely that no further songs will be posted until the completion (sometime in 3176 AM?) of Aarni's third album Lovecraftian, so enjoy(?) the existing ones in the interim...

2) Shoggoth-sized thanks to Greg Kaminsky for featuring Aarni's songs in his excellent Occult Of Personality podcast episodes. Karmic brownie points will surely fall like manna from heaven for all concerned!

3) Omnimantia EP, the Double Demo and the Aarni/Umbra Nihil split album still available for ordering via the Aarni website. You only need to give us all your money - a bargain at twice the price.

Now the unutterable dive into the Deep One-infested waters of making the third album shall continue.

93/23,
Master Warjomaa

New letters:

Dear patient,

1) There might still be some of those fashionable Aarni t-shirts left in Epidemie Records' webstore, so contact them if you haven't yet...however they claim to be on holiday and incommunicado until September 13th.

2) Here in Doominvalley we have been lazily working and playing on 'The Horror at Red Hook', a somewhat jazzy tune, which tries to remain true to the Lovecraft story by being shortish but not as mediocre. Now only the bass track and some chants need to be laid down for it before continuing to the next song. Maybe 'Nyarlathotep' or some other tune. So far we have a couple of finished tracks plus several in various stages of completion.
The upcoming album 'Lovecraftian' seems to be mostly instrumental with chants, recitative, vocalisations and just enough singing by Albert Frankenstein and other guest musicians. Plus lush soundscapes in the mostly grotesque and arabesque songs. As always, both musical serenity and ugliness rear their retarded faces.
Do you want to believe that?

3) Lest you remember: should you feel the need, Omnimantia EP, the Double Demo and the Aarni/Umbra Nihil split album can still be purchased via the Aarni webshite.

By the way, here's another chance for you to get interactive: if you play some exotic and/or interesting instrument reasonably well (and can record your playing as well) plus want to appear as a guest musician on 'Lovecraftian', contact us by email and let's see if you can be the next False Idol. Bribery may work too. It would be nice to have more than the usual number of guest appearances this time around - just for the hell of it. So go ahead, make your mama proud.

Keep your shoggoth clean,
Master Warjomaa

:: :: LIBER LVIII AARNI vel Scatomantia :: ::

Pungenday, day 14 in the season of Aftermath, 3175 Anno Mungi.

Hola Isopsephia! Welcome to Liber LVIII Aarni, the fifty-eighth (go look up the Gematria) edition of the monthly official Aarni newsletter, bringing you some of the latest news on the band and their website and in-depth emanations from Aarni's infamous metal god/retard Master Warjomaa!

:: M.W.'S WORDS ::

Dear unconventional conventionalist,

1) We hear there are still some of those fashionable Aarni t-shirts left in Epidemie Records' webstore, so go get one to cover up your unspeakable nakedness if you already haven't.

2) Currently Aarni has been busy with arranging the tune Celephaïs but took a welcome break from all the tedium by recording Azathoth, a rather chaotic little (yet inordinately long) jingle which partly revisits the past huge hit Reaching Azathoth, while developing into a charming cacophony in its own right. Especial care was applied to get all of the instruments out of tune and going microtonal on your ass. Surely Lovecraft would have approved...
We are also taking part in some other music projects best left unmentioned for the time being.

3) The CD cover/booklet artwork for Lovecraftian is well underway by a talented, young & haunted cultist. I think you will find the work of this modern-day Pickman stimulating enough to your jaded sensibilities. The album has been slated for an autumn 2010 era vulgaris release date just to frustrate you and give us enough time to polish everything off.

4) Once the spirit moves us, some key songs from Tohcoth will be remixed and peradventure re-recorded (especially the vocals) for maximum effect. The doom of these tracks will probably be online release in some kind of a nefarious "pay what thou wilt" scheme.

5) Yet another honest Bambi-eyed reminder: should you feel the urge, Omnimantia EP, the Double Demo and the Aarni/Umbra Nihil split album can still be purchased via the Aarni webshite. GIVE US YOUR MONEY! As a bonus we can even throw in one or several unreleased Aarni hit songs should you insist.

All the rumours are true,
Magister Warjomaa
