“Im Heidenwald Elfgards & Ensomhet” collects the two tape releases by Trollheim, an electronic music project by the Black Son of Darkness of Grausamkeit. Originally released in 1999 and 2000, these recordings are a trek through the darkest parts of the soul. The first side of this LP consists of two extended tracks of sweeping, ancient synth meditations that pull the listener deeply inward, occasionally exploding with BSOD’s gloriously idiosyncratic melodic flourishes. On the second side is a collection of shorter pieces featuring distorted synth and drum machine-driven medieval hymns that invoke the pain and ecstasy of herbal psycho-sorcery and non-ordinary reality.
All audio for this LP was sourced from the original master tapes, with enhancement by C. Thompson, providing for the highest quality versions of these recordings possible. Adhering to the original aesthetic of the releases, all layout elements for the jacket and double-sided insert are sourced directly from the tapes.
