VAP016 Wagner Ødegård (Swe) - Øðe - LP

Continuing its conquest of melancholy soul and archaic shadow, Wagner Ødegård, that nimbus mist of antediluvian sorcery, returns to GoatowaRex with the deep sorrow of ambient incantation, Øðe. Originally released in the autumn season of 2016, this cold soundscape of folk -esque expression is now reborn—for the first time—in the sable grooves of black wax. This physical artefact, provided by none other than the iron tyranny of GoatowaRex, will spirit those away to empty fields of splendid anguish.

A shadowed piece of Wagner Ødegård’s history, Øðe comes from a time when Wagner Ødegård preferred the acoustic note and the long lost winds of the past, more so than the raw black sorcery that it would later be infamous for. An eclectic array of string, horn and organ instrumentation; all combined with a synth poetry that will greet those acolytes stepping into grey firmament, an incantation executed with sincere expression and a longing for that which has long since passed.

This haunted realm is a place to lose the mind and is littered with the creak of old wood, whisper of the forlorn and the eerie crackle of ancient wax. Entrancing in the minimalism of its spellcraft, Øðe is the requiem of funerary mound and carved wood—a swansong for the rich tapestry of those memories of all those who walked the earth before. Ghosts of a people now forgotten.

The second volume of six parts of Wagner Ødegård’s winter ambient series, to be released throughout the year of 2021 and possibly more beyond, acolytes hungering for more of the cloudmancer’s earlier folk soundscapes need search no longer—these are the mouldering ruins you have long quested for.
