V▲LH▲LL - "Leaning On Shadows" full album

Reposting this amazing news from our label Artoffact Records:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
V▲LH▲LL - "Leaning On Shadows" + "Shadows". CD, Cassette, Ambigram Patch.

Stockholm-based VALHALL is the creative outlet for two secretive electronic musicians who prefer to leave their identities unrevealed. The duo composes haunting, epic pieces with broad brush-strokes, influenced by witch house, neofolk, and industrial. Formed in 2012, the project was quickly tapped by Finland's Kuudes Aisti festival, where VALHALL shared the bill with The Haxan Cloak, Lydia Lunch, Light Asylum and many others, before taking the stage at 3 AM to a stunned crowd.

The debut CD for Artoffact Records, Leaning on Shadows, takes the project to new places. It is at once haunting and ominous, but also shines with an unexpected whiteness. It is in fact, a thing of beauty.

The limited fan version available exclusively from Storming the Base comes with a bonus cassette, entitled simply Shadows. The cassette contains two long semi-ambient pieces which rework elements of the album, as well as lyrics, poetry, and conversations related to the music on Leaning on Shadows. It is in many way a musical Shadow of the more complete work.

All orders of the limited edition also come with a large-sized embroidered VALHALL ambigram patch. Approximate size is 12 cm x 5 cm.

Nah sorry. "The limited fan version available exclusively from Storming the Base". Not sure how much the shipping is from Canada to UK though...perhaps it's not that big a difference from Sweden->UK. We've sent some packages the other way (Swe->Can) and it was more or less the same as within Europe.

We cannot amp this album enough. We were lucky enough to get a premaster version and we have been playing it non-stop. Some absolutely fine work here. A must-buy record.
