Velnias: RuneEater

Velnias exists as an entity in opposition to the misguided and failing modern world. The music is a reflection of man’s falling and the grandeur of that which he has forsaken.

Formed in 2006 and based in the Colorado mountains, the atmospheric black/doom entity known as Velnias has released one demo, two untitled tour EPs, their mammoth debut LP Sovereign Nocturnal, then, in 2012, their most ambitious effort yet – RuneEater, which can be streamed here and purchased in on gorgeous colored vinyl or CD from Pesanta Urfolk here.

Marking their first extensive live actions since a 2011 European tour with Agalloch and 2012 European run with Kampfar and Helrunar, come September, Velnias will appear at the Stella Natura Festival before embarking upon a two-week tour with Esoteric and Saturnalia Temple to spread their inimitable black/doom magic far and wide.
