:: :: LIBER LXIII AARNI vel Pons Shoggothorum :: ::

Boomtide, day 71 in the season of Confusion, 3176 Anno Mungi.

Iä Isyys! Welcome to Liber LXIII Aarni, the sixty-third (go look up the Gematria) edition of the official Aarni newsletter, bringing thee some of the latest news on the band and in-depth emanations from Aarni's infamous metal god/retard Master Warjomaa.

:: M.W.'S WORDS ::

23,

1) The infernal lethargy-inducing heatwave which brought dreams yet denied sleep has thankfully finally passed, at least for the time being, and Aarni lives once more...we just finished the bass recordings for Land Beyond The Night and now the mixing psychosis & studio complex for the song can begin. Also our final track for the forthcoming split album aka Goetia has been taking shape rather nicely, so the release hopefully won't be too distant in the future.
Because after all the future is where we all are going to spend the rest of our lives: so saith the Ed Wood of Doom.

If 'Land...' can be described as an almost catchy & somewhat well-produced(!) tune, then 'Goetia' for its part shall be more of an excercise in dissonance, quirkiness and general radio unfriendliness. In other words just how thou likest it.

2) Aarni wishes to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has recently graced us with visual artworks related to the band. These have ranged from the made-in-the-madhouse-toilet variety to the tr00ly masterful in a classical sense. Thank you! As usual, the energies derived from making/admiring these objets d'art all go to supporting ze kause. The candy-shoggoths have been dispatched; rejoice for the beginning is near!

3) Speaking of contributions, we would once again like to encourage entities reasonably skilled in more or less "exotic" instruments to contact us in order to be featured on the third Aarni album Lovecraftian. We would enjoy having a host of guest musicians on it. Now is thy chance to make it big in mu$ick!
All thou needest is access to digital audio recording software or why not its analog counterparts, and the ability to send the audio file(s) containing thy immortal art to us. Inquire within!

Thou art what thou buyest:

A plethora of bewildering Aarni t-shirt designs and divers other merch available from the recently apparently improved Reverbnation store.

A handful of autographed 'Rising Of Yog-Sothoth: Tribute to Thergothon' double CD's available from us for a measly 8 euros inside the EU; 10 euros for the rest of this excuse for a planet. Costs include shipping via Air Mail. As an added tr00 d00m feature the double album comes in an ultra rare standard CD jewel case.

Shouldst thou feel the urge, Omnimantia EP, the Double Demo and the Aarni/Umbra Nihil split album can still be purchased via the Aarni webshite. As a bonus we can on demand even throw in one or more unreleased Aarni hit/miss songs.

A better idea yet would probably be to get the newly remixed and/or mastered 'Bathos' and 'Omnimantia' in several audio formats with extra goodies from Bandcamp. If thou wilt, thou canst listen to them prior to paying the ludicruosly low price.

BTW the Aarni songs on MySpace and Reverbnation have been updated to these recently remixed versions.

:: :: LIBER LXIV AARNI vel Dementia Amoralis :: ::

Boomtide, day 15 in the season of The Aftermath, 3176 Anno Mungi.

Iä Shub-Niggurath! Welcome to Liber LXIV Aarni, the sixty-fourth (go look up the Gematria) edition of the official Aarni newsletter, bringing thee some of the latest news on the band and in-depth emanations from Aarni's infamous metal god/retard Master Warjomaa.

:: M.W.'S WORDS ::

Nanoo nanoo,

1) Begging thy pardon for the shameful hiatus since the last newsletter issue! We've been busy with work on the forthcoming Split album, on Lovecraftian and also sundry deleterious extracurricular activities. Anyway, as thou mayst already know from our Facebook, Twitter etc. updates, the new song 'Land Beyond The Night' is available for streaming at Reverbnation and My$pace (the former features lyrics plus seems to have better sound quality despite a lower bitrate and anyhow thou shouldst refrain from using My$pace, which is notoriously merely a device for lining the pockets of that commercial oaf cum reactionary Murdoch).

We made the song as an experiment in "mainstreamy" style and so should not be taken as any kind of indication of the other material on the Split album or indeed of "Aarni's future musical direction", if any...and yea, its lyrics contain references to those of various celebrated bands of merit. See how clever thou art and spot them all at thy peril!

2) About the only thing standing in the way of the Split album's release is our 'Goetia', which fortunately takes shape even as we speak. This disjointed and dissonant tune has perhaps something in common with 'Liber Umbrarum', as it too is in Latin and consists of a dialogue/pissing contest, this time between a hapless magickian and Goetic demons. Guess who wins?

3) After many a year, the release of the H.P.Lovecraft tribute album 'Yogsothery' is set to finally take place this month. More info at Voidhanger Records.
The CD features inter alia a 20-page full-colour booklet of eldritch artwork & divers gibberings and will also be available from Aarni, once we receive our copies. We'll let thee know then.

Still - thou art what thou buyest (what charming Yuletide sacrifices/gifts):

A plethora of bewildering Aarni t-shirt designs and divers other merch available from the recently apparently improved Reverbnation store.

A handful of autographed Rising Of Yog-Sothoth: Tribute to Thergothon double CD's still available from us for a measly 8 euros inside the EU; 10 euros for the rest of this excuse for a planet. Costs include shipping via Air Mail. As an added tr00 d00m feature the double album comes in an ultra rare standard CD jewel case.

Shouldst thou feel the urge, Omnimantia EP, the Double Demo and the Aarni/Umbra Nihil split album can still be purchased via the Aarni webshite. As a bonus we can on demand even throw in one or more unreleased Aarni hit/miss songs.

A better idea yet would probably be to get the newly remixed and/or mastered Bathos and Omnimantia with extra goodies from Bandcamp. If thou wilt, thou canst listen to them prior to paying the ludicruosly low price. BTW the Aarni songs on MySpace and Reverbnation have been updated to these recently remixed versions.

:: :: LIBER LXVI AARNI vel Progressio Lenta :: ::

Pungenday, day 71 in the season of The Aftermath, 3177 Anno Mungi.

Iä Rlim Shaikorth! Welcome to Liber LXVI Aarni, the sixty-sixth (go look up the Gematria) edition of the official Aarni newsletter, bringing thee some of the latest news on the band and unsettling emanations from Aarni's infamous metal god/retard illuminatus Master Warjomaa.

:: M.W.'S WORDS ::

Darling outlandish outpatient,

1) In case thou noticed it not, there has been another (un)fortunate hiatus since the last newsletter issue...too busy working/playing on the Aarni & Persistence In Mourning split album - which much to everyone's relief now finally appears to be completed!
The delay of this fine release amounts to, what, two years? Completely Aarni's fault I must confess, as PiM's half and also the artwork was finished long since. Nostra maxima culpa! Apologies to all concerned - obsession sometimes seems to lead one to infuriating inadvertent inaction...

CD release through Witch Sermon hopefully during the spring of 3178 AM, known to the unenlightened as 2012 era vulgaris. Probably at some point also available from Bandcamp in several HQ audio formats including hi-res album artwork.

The Aarni/PiM Split clocks just under 58 minutes featuring ten tracks, five from each band. I plan to do a breakdown of Aarni's half in a future newsletter issue once the release draws nigh.
In a nutshell: our tracks vary from each other quite a bit, presenting almost the whole gamut of Aarni's "styles". Thou canst find the melodic folky stuff as well as matters metalloid, doomy, Xothian (yet deliciously not Cthulhoid), irritating/pleasing, catchy, boring/interesting. The same can be said about the vocal styles used. One might even glimpse a shallowly buried common theme amidst all the variation - not even a cadavre exquis.

2) Speaking of art, the glorious & unnervingly lifelike images and such for the Split album appear courtesy of the brilliantly talented Alessandro Falca from Conte di San Pietro. On that website thou canst sneak preview some artwork for Lovecraftian (as well as other projects) seeing that this amazing Italian Renaissance gentleman also holds the illustrative responsibilities for Aarni's upcoming third LP album.

3) Yes, we have presently returned to work and play on Lovecraftian...adding flourishes while removing others, feverishly fixing and mixing those tracks we deem already complete. Some musick for the more epic songs partially remains to be written; done easily enough. Mayhap this time an Aarni album doesn't take so long to be finished (it has already been under on/off construction for over two years).
Possibly the main hindrance for the past releases has been a kind of misplaced perfectionism, although this could be somewhat hard to believe for entities familiar with our musick...but yes, we notice graveyards tend to have a high quota of perfectionists and discount bins an equal amount of well-mixed releases. Henceforth Aarni tries to redirect its anal tendencies more, er, fittingly and adopt the elusive attitude of "good enough".
Otherwise there dwells a Behemoth in the living room and Leviathan in the bedroom. Say what?

Of the bathroom it is not lawful to speak.

In any case it currently sounds like Aarni will be moving towards a more extreme musickal style. More heaviness, guitars, atmosphere, peculiar vocals, perhaps further minimalism, disharmony, exotic time and key signatures if (un)needed, less percussion of the conventional drum set variety, a sort of return to the early stuff and things of that nature and ilk. To put it briefly, again for the first time Aarni goes more Pnakotic. Whether this will already be evident on Lovecraftian remains to be seen...

4) A certain band member, who shall not long remain anonymous, has taken it upon itself to write the occasional blog post to Rant King - much to the chagrin of the rest of the band. Among the hysterical offal and largely destructive outbursts to come thou canst discover official Aarni-related tidings too, but on the whole it cannot be over-emphasised that the blog does not comply with Aarni party policy. Or maybe some of it does...or in fact most of it. But peruse it at thy own risk as it might give a perplexing and even baffling view of Aarni. Sometimes the Sanity Loss can be as high as D20 and at others even lower.

Finally the mandatory ads - thou art what thou buyest:

A plethora of bewildering Aarni t-shirt designs and divers other merch available from the Reverbnation store.

Yogsothery - Gate I: Chaosmogonic Rituals Of Fear available from us for 10 € (includes planetwide shipping via Air Mail). The standard CD jewel case comes in an unearthly cardboard slipcase for thy edification & delight. Features an outlandish 20-page full colour booklet with liner notes and lyrics just to make thee feel special & loved. Order thine while our copies last!

A handful of autographed Rising Of Yog-Sothoth: Tribute to Thergothon double CD's still available from us for a measly 8 euros inside the EU; 10 euros for the rest of this bizarre excuse for a planet. Costs include shipping via Flying Polyps. As an added tr00 d00m feature the double album comes in an ultra rare standard CD jewel case.

Shouldst thou feel the urge, Omnimantia EP, the Double Demo and the Aarni/Umbra Nihil split album can still be purchased via the Aarni webshite. As a bonus we can on demand even throw in one or more unreleased Aarni hit/miss songs.

A better idea yet would probably be to get the newly remixed and/or mastered Bathos and Omnimantia with extra goodies from Bandcamp. If thou wilt, thou canst fully listen to them prior to paying the ludicruosly low price.

Let's live the New Year 2012 EV like it is our last,

Ta! And from the 67. newsletter issue:

:: M.W.'S WORDS ::

Dear pithecoids,

1) The release of the Aarni/Persistence in Mourning Split album draws nigh: the official date has been set as the 1st of April 2012 in the Gregorian Reckoning! In other words and to repeat, the release of the Split album takes place on April Fools' Day this year of their Lord.

We, the authors of the album, decided that the date in question would be most auspicious for our purposes, mainly due to certain astro- and scatological factors, whereof it has been deemed unlawful to speak.

An arcane tome destined for inclusion in the Index Expurgatorius could be written about the uncanny graphical artwork of the album, yet suffice it to say that Mr Alessandro Falca, a veritable Renaissance visual universal genius; a blue-blooded atavistic descendant of the Glory that once was Rome; a sovereign Porphyrogene of the Pictorial Arts, has himself delved profoundly into Alchemical imagery and Nature's sublime processes, whereby he has completed that most dear Opus; transmuting his hard-won wisdom into the eye-fondling extravaganza thou canst witness gracing the earthly shell of the CD. Forsooth the V.I.T.R.I.O.L. formula completed to the utter dismay & delight of the Crowned Heads of Europe and the rest of the Globe!

Yet, if it is your will, you can preorder the CD from us via the usual methods, especially those of you who physically exist (however tentatively) inside or near the Europa Fort. Dwellers in the Colonies should direct their inquiries to the New World-based Witch Sermon Productions.

In any event, entities (pre)ordering this meistershysterwerk from Aarni can do so for a mere nice and round 11 euros inside the Europa Fort, or for 13 euros for those fortunate enough to be situated without. As apparent by these ridiculously low prices, the April Fools' Joke must be on us...but hey, what's a dime to a millionaire?

We have a limited stock available, but they are all special Japanese import versions; moreover each copy features a stylish Obi, as well as 10 extra tracks for a sum total of ten on the CD! You see, the pressings of the album outside of Japan consist of a blank compact disc, for neither Aarni nor PiM had the heart to feature our original planned songs after all. They were shit. So luckily for you, this Japanese version has the ten extra tracks, all of extremely high musical quality and each a veritable masterpiece, worth the album's low price in and of itself!

On a special note, one of the album copies features a rare glitch made by the CD pressing factory: the tray card is set upside down, making the copy an ultra rare collector's item and sure to fetch a high price on the free market! Whosoever receives this rarity can congratulate hirself on being very, very special indeed and Mummy and Daddy (or Wolfman and Daddy, as the case may very well be) love thee so very, very much! So better place thy order post and fast, as thou mayest just get lucky...

2) Of Aarni's songs on the Split:
First off, we have '49 Angeli Boni', which gives thee a nice exercise in basic numerology. In this case the number seven. As thou canst deduce from its title, the song concerns the De Heptarchia Mystica of Dr John Dee and the lyrics consist of the list of "49 good angels", whose names all begin with the letter 'b'. For an insight into this matter, study the Tongue Angelickall a.k.a. Enochian. Interestingly enough, many important words in English also begin with this letter, for example 'booze', 'butt', 'bud', 'boobs', 'bubonic', 'bathos', 'Babalon', 'Bob' and 'blather'.
Musically this song repeats the same pattern of seven power chords for seven verses, and has the danceable (especially if thou art epileptic) time signature of 7/4. Despite its brevity, not necessarily a radio-friendly song...maybe an aquired taste to fully enjoy. But as the old Aarnian adage goes: live and learn, die and teach.

The second track is 'Emuu', a "kalevala" folky instrumental. The Finnish title seems hard to translate into inferior languages, but could be rendered as "the genitor spirit/god of a species". In this case the species is Man, alluded to by the swan calls present in the song. See Fenno-Ugric mythology on the role of waterfowl in the creation of the world and all that resembles it.

The third track 'Land Beyond the Night' may come across as needlessly mainstream, but is highly autobiographical in nature, detailing a typical day on the Astral plane for Yours Truly. The lyrics also contain a number of references to more or less classical songs by influential bands. Genius Albert Frankenstein once again guest stars on the vocals.

The mostly Swedish-language 'Lemminkäinens Tempel' serves as the fourth song and deals with the palaver of Ior Bock, the late great lunatic of pot's creation and scion of pre-Atlantean heritage. The track's musical content has been intended to reflect this, in a somewhat Black Sabbath fashion.

The fifth and final Aarni song, 'Goetia', deals with...well, a true Inept of the Ars Magica calling up Goetic spirits - all in God's name, of course. The Latin lyrics present a dialogue/battle of wits and willpower between the two parties. Guess who wins?
Musically speaking, this song has "dissonance" or wossname, groovy riffs and not-so-groovy ones. The schizoid doominess should make for a charming transition into PiM's half of the album.

We have not the clearance to speak of PiM's material, but in short it could be described as being atmospheric in their special idiom...distorted guitars, slow pace, Theremin, bottom-heaviness and general goodness (not to be taken in a metaphysical sense).

Lyrics (and English translations for the same) for Aarni's songs can be found on our webshite, as usual.

Finally The mandatory ads - thou art what thou buyest:

A plethora of bewildering Aarni t-shirt designs and divers other merch available from the Reverbnation store.

Yogsothery - Gate I: Chaosmogonic Rituals Of Fear available from us for 10 € (includes planetwide shipping via Air Mail).

Costs include shipping via Flying Polyps. As an added tr00 d00m feature the double album comes in an ultra rare standard CD jewel case.

Shouldst thou feel the urge, Omnimantia EP, the Double Demo and the Aarni/Umbra Nihil split album can still be purchased via the Aarni webshite. As a bonus we can on demand even throw in one or more unreleased Aarni hit/miss songs.

A better idea yet would probably be to get the newly remixed and/or mastered Bathos and Omnimantia with extra goodies from Bandcamp. If thou wilt, thou canst fully listen to them prior to paying the ludicruosly low price.

Darling posthumans,

A few short remarks for thy ADHD sensibilities:

1) Aarni currently works on two albums (plus a top secret project) - 'Lovecraftian' and another, still untitled release...the main reason for this being that we grew bored with concentrating on just the HPL theme, and so needed to balance it with more varied muzack. The irritating thing with theme albums appears to be that the idea sounds great in theory, but in practice it can prove to be annoyingly labourious when it comes to actual songwriting. So, Aarni works on two releases and switches between them when the relevant mood/inspiration possesses us. We suspect that this other album can be seen as a follow-up to 'Bathos', in the sense of containing varied songs in different styles. Not unlike 'Bathos' some of those tracks will also probably be more immediately accessible than the others...

2) Not surprisingly, since its release in April the Aarni/PiM Split CD has turned out to be a smash hit...so get thy copy from us! Still a plethora left in the benighted Doominvalley vaults.

3) In Aarni webshite related tidings: two recent interviews added and the FAQ page & recommended reading list updated.

4) The song 'Land Beyond the Night' off the Split album was recently featured on episode 120 of the Occult Of Personality podcast. Thanks go to the magus Greg!

Delicious patients,

1) New (sort of) Aarni album out now on Bandcamp! "Deliria - Odds and Ends and Beginnings 2000-2012" contains 32 tracks, some of which have hitherto been only unofficially released, and the rest never before released anywhere...it features 5 (or 6) full songs as well as loads of shorter tracks consisting of studio outtakes, recorded riff ideas (most of which remain unused to date in Aarni releases), demo takes and a few jam session snippets. These have been included as baffling curiosities and pervy sneak peeks into the Aarni songwriting process.
They will possibly give bittersweet eargasms to those individuals inordinately interested in the band and lo-fi sound in general...such people will no doubt also enjoy the fact that when Aarni in the throes of inspiration captured these snippets on a recording device, only a single take was ever made. So all those tasty playing mistakes and candylike out-of-tune notes can frequently be savoured by the drooling listener! Obviously not very mixed or mastered.

Thou canst download the full(er) songs individually if thou wilt, but the short tracks only come with a complete album purchase - as do a couple of bonus items: an old Aarni flyer and a fortunately never used "promo photo" of MW from 2000 e.v.

Perhaps interestingly most of the riff/melody idea tracks, both the ones used and unused in released Aarni material, date from the year of Their Lord 2000. Thou canst listen and find out which of them made it years later to the two Aarni demos, the Split CD with Umbra Nihil, 'Bathos', 'Tohcoth' and 'Omnimantia' EP. Some of the remaining ideas will perhaps be used in the future while others will certainly not be.

Anyway, these recorded musical gems represent a rarity, as usually Aarni band members prefer to conserve the fruits of their creativity by the old-fashioned way i.e. writing the stuff down on notation paper.

Each entry in the albums tracklist also features some words in the way of commentary and background information about the track in question.

2) We have likewise made the remastered Double Demo available at Bandcamp for thy artistic experience.

3) In Aarni webshite related tidings: thou canst read two recent reviews of the Aarni/PiM split there. Ta to the music journos involved!

4) We also got signed to the "record label" Any And All Records.

5) Probably the best way to access the most recent Aarni-related news and various incoherent outcries is by our Facebook page. Its RSS feed is http://www.facebook.com/feeds/page.php? ... rmat=rss20

We recently put a poll on the FB page as well as for thy interactive cravings, asking for thy favourite track on the Split. Consider the poll as research for the direction thou thinkest Aarni should concentrate on style-wise in the future. The results may or may not influence our output, but at least thou tried! It's the thought that counts fnord.

----------------

Finally those pesky ads - thou art what thou buyest:

A plethora of bewildering Aarni t-shirt designs and divers other merch available from the Reverbnation store.

Aarni / Persistence in Mourning Split CD available from us for 11 euros inside the Europa Fort; and 13 euros for the rest of this globe...a special Japanese import featuring all kinds of goodies. See Doomintroll's Blog for more information.

Yogsothery - Gate I: Chaosmogonic Rituals Of Fear available from us for 10 euros (includes planetwide shipping via Air Mail). The standard CD jewel case comes in an unearthly cardboard slipcase for thy edification & delight. Features an outlandish 20-page full colour booklet with liner notes and lyrics just to make thee feel special & loved. Order thine while our copies last!

Costs include shipping via Flying Polyps. As an added tr00 d00m feature the double album comes in an ultra rare standard CD jewel case.

Shouldst thou feel the urge, Omnimantia EP, the Double Demo and the Aarni/Umbra Nihil split album can still be purchased as CDR's via the Aarni webshite. As a bonus we can on demand even throw in one or more unreleased Aarni hit/miss songs.

A better idea yet would probably be to get the newly remixed and/or mastered Bathos, Omnimantia and Double Demo with extra goodies from Bandcamp. If thou wilt, thou canst fully listen to them prior to paying the ludicrously low price.

:: :: LIBER LXX AARNI vel Flatus Mundi :: ::

Prickle-Prickle, day 62 in the season of The Aftermath, 3178 Anno Mungi.

Iä Timewave Zero! Welcome to Liber LXX Aarni, the seventieth (go look up the Gematria) edition of the official Aarni newsletter, bringing thee some of the latest news on the band and unsettling emanations from Aarni's infamous metal god/retard illuminatus Master Warjomaa.

:: M.W.'S WORDS ::

Ave morituri,

1) Just a brief notification before the beginning of the world on Dec 21st: lately Aarni has been extremely slowly working on Lovecraftian and a fourth studio album, alternating between the twain as fancy has dictated. Once again it would probably be unlawful to go into too much detail regarding the new material, but let it be declared that we have set as our over-arching musical goal the dethronement of conventional song, riff, melody, time, tempo etc. structures, while retaining the use of traditional rock/metal instruments. The result should however be better than it sounds. As always... :?

2) Happy psychotemporal karmic implosion & Good Yule to those who may survive!

----------------

No ads this time, after all there isn't time anymore to buy Aarni classics, save perhaps:

Deliria - Odds and Ends and Beginnings 2000-2012 contains 32 tracks, some of which have hitherto been only unofficially released, and the rest never before released anywhere...it features 5 (or 6) full songs as well as loads of shorter tracks consisting of studio outtakes, recorded riff ideas (most of which remain unused to date in Aarni releases), demo takes and a few jam session snippets. These have been included as baffling curiosities and pervy sneak peeks into the Aarni songwriting process. Available from Bandcamp.

Pnakotise out,
Magister Warjomaa

IN:
-'Perdurabo' by R.K.
-Arcanum

OUT:
-Xothian romantic comedies
-long count

Io Singularity,
Aarni
