DEATH IN JUNE & BOYD RICE / ALARM AGENTS
In stock now at Strange Fortune, perhaps the biggest release of the fall.
After a few years' silence, the music of Death in June is back, accompanying the words of Boyd Rice. Alarm Agents comes across much like a sequel to the excellent Wolf Pact. A perfect mix of stimulating thoughts and sublime acoustic beauty.
CD is in stock for $15 and shipping, claim your copy of this special album now.
Vinyl edition coming later.
GEM OF THE MONTH: TYR MYTH CULTURE TRADITION / VOLUME 2
Strange Fortune's Gem of the Month for October 2004 is Volume 2 of the remarkable Tyr journal, published by Joshua Buckley, Michael Moynihan of Blood Axis and contributors.
Tyr Volume 2 is a vast treasure trove of wisdom on music, magick, and a whole spectrum of other topics. Bonus accompanying CD features Coil, Allerseelen, Blood Axis, Changes, Fire + Ice, Waldteufel and more.
This Book+CD is in stock for $19 and shipping, claim yours now.
Many have been asking about the latest on the various former World Serpent-affiliated artists and their catalogues. It's chaotic yet in most cases, not much solid to report here so far, but many of them are expected back before long.
So far we can report, former World Serpent artist Tor Lundvall is back in stock and now distributed officially by Strange Fortune.
This is your first chance ever to pick up Tor's exceptional releases at a reasonable price. In stock currently: Under the Shadows of Trees (Strange Fortune's #1 pick of 2003), Ice, and Evening/Leaves (7" vinyl). These World Serpent-branded editions are available while supplies last.
Coming later this fall will be the brand new Tor Lundvall album, Last Light.
