We hired Independent Music Promotions to help us..

To get this project going we do need loyal fans and listeners, and in todays world we have to hire professionals to do the bulk of our promotion. We are happy to announce that we have started working with James Moore from Independent Music Promotions. We hav a long term goal of slowly building an audience, instead of quick and cheap promotions that only gives a bump in plays, just to fade away just as fast. Let us see where this takes us…

Pre-order of “Shamanic Love” is available

We are pleased to announce that the pre-order for our coming album “Shamanic Love” is now available from Bandcamp.

You will receive the first track “Shadow Love” upon purchase and the remaining tracks when the album releases the 30. November 2020.

Kjell Braaten’s “Ferd” out now – Featuring Astralseid and RĂșnahild

We are so proud to be part of this masterpiece by Kjell Braaten. It is a musical journey, with unique, pristine and crystal clear sound, that shows both the musical and sound engineering skills that Kjell possess. Each track also features different guest artists, giving the album a wide range of moods.

This is an album you can lean back and enjoy, with all its magical soundscapes, letting the story unfold within your own mind. It almost feels more like a theatrical piece than just music.

Check out the album on Spotify, Bandcamp, or buy the CD or the gorgeous vinyl from ByNorse.

Featured on Brainvoyager’s radio show “Electronic Fusion”

We are honoured to be featured on Brainvoyager’s show “Electronic Fusion” #271. A 2 hours show that is packed with great artist.

Here you’ll have a unique possibility to hear two tracks from our coming album “Shamanic Love”, before it releases.

You can also listen to all episodes of the show over at Mixcloud, they are absolutely worth checking out.

Release date for “Shamanic Love”: 30. November 2020

We have finally set a release date for our next album “Shamanic Love”. Originally we planned only three tracks, but we made one more that fit just too well not to include it in this release. This is also why the album has been delayed.

“Shamanic Love” will release on all major platforms, including Spotify and Bandcamp, 30. November 2020. Stay tuned folks…

Runahild releases new album in august 2020

Finally the date has been set for Runahild‘s album “Astralseid”: 28th of august 2020.

This album has been created paralell to our own album “Spirit Symbiosis” and as you might have noticed the album name. This is partly to show the connection between the two projects. To make the confusion complete one of the songs on Runahilds album will also be called “Astralseid” and it is a completly different version of our song called “Astralseid”. It is all connected and intertwined. If you like Astralseid, you most likely will like Runahild!

We simply can’t wait for this to be released!

Check out her amazing collection of albums on bandcamp:

Album: Spirit Symbiosis

Digital Album, released 7th of May, 2020.

1. Mushroomhunt

Inspired by gathering mushrooms in the woods and the knowledge of fungi and its immense importance for nature.

Fungi are among the oldest forms of life on land and they have evolved alongside all the life we can see today. The mycelium connects all plants. The mycelium enables trees to share nutrition and information with eachother. Fungi breaks down dead biological matter, extracts minerals from rocks and makes it all available for plants. Without fungi we would probably not have life on land. Without fungi we would drown in dead organic matter.

Fungi is what transforms death to life.

Song Credits:

  • Gustav Holberg: Electronics.
  • Runahild: Electronics, voice.

2. Astralseid

We humans used to live in mutualistic symbiosis with nature. At some point we figured out that we could shape our surroundings and started destroying all that was around us, to fill it with only what we wanted. The peaceful symbiosis was broken and we had become parasites of Mother Earth.

What we fail to see is that everything is connected. Most parasites that kills its host has an exit strategy, a way to reach a new host. We have none. If we kill our host, we also kill our selves. We need to reconnect, to re-establish the mutualistic symbiosis with nature. We need to get back into the loving arms of Mother Nature. Our consciouness and spirit in a symbiotic relationship with eachother, nature and the universe.

Song Credits:

  • Gustav Holberg: Electronics.
  • Runahild: Composer, Vocals, Violin, Electronics.

3. Nishaadi

Nishaadi is a sanskrit word for twilight. It is the twilight of our minds and souls. The time where light and darkness blends into one. A time to see the paradoxes of our thoughts, revealing the ego as only a tool of the human body. Lifting the veil to see our selves for what we are, both enlightened and dark, both weak and strong, both human and soul.

The main instrument you hear is the indian Sarangi, a bowed instrument with 38 strings. It is an instrument of hundred colors.

Song Credits:

  • Gustav Holberg: Composer, Sarangi, Electronics.
  • Runahild: Voice.

Album Credits

  • All songs recorded, mixed and mastered by Gustav Holberg and Runahild at Seidsang Studio.
  • Photography by Runahild.
  • Cover art by Runahild and Gustav Holberg.

This album has been created paralell to Runahilds next solo album. In many ways these two albums are like twins, born at the same time with many similarities, but also their differences. Track 2: Astralseid, features on both albums but as two completely different versions. Runahilds album will be released later this year (2020). The process has been deeper than any, for both of us. We have gone deeper into the world of sound engineeering as well as deeper into our spiritual realms. A year with plentiful of experiences, hardships and moments of pure joy. All in all it has been a tough, but beautiful ride, so we hope you enjoy the fruits from our tree of life.

Thanks to
