The time of production is nigh!

The time of production is nigh!

Færir björn, þar er bára
brestr, undinna festa
oft í Ægis kjafta
úrsvöl Gymis völva.
En sægnípu Sleipnir
slítr úrdrifinn hvítrar
Ránar, rauðum steinir
unnit, brjóst ór munni

That’s your bit of Eddic poetry for today, but besides all that, we would like to inform you that all the prodding and poking at the preproduction material is done, and we’re gearing up for production. All scratch tracks have been laid down, mixed, inspected, modified and tweaked. This yielded a very nice roadmap of how and what we want things to sound like.

The RÁN express is in full force, and now begins the recording and re-recording of tracks, until we get what we want. We’ll also keep you updated on the coming tour, and we have had some confirmations already. Things are shaping up!

Take care and hail!

All preproduction done!

All preproduction done!

Well, after lots of hard toiling and communication, we can announce that all preproduction songs for Rock to Hell are recorded. Now comes the finetuning stage, where the evil horde that is RÁN will poke, prod, listen, change, tune, process, mince and brutalize all the stuff that has been recorded over the last few months. Finetuning the new pitdemon sound, with more more brutalizing and raw sonic landcaping, was a challenge.

But the direction is clear and the goal is set! Added is a shot from Andrath’s studio when he finished laying down the last bits of “Thrash Black”, which is going to feature on the album, in an extended version you headbangers are (hopefully) going to love.

Hail from the lords of RÁN.

And another track done!

And another track done!

In our journey to complete the infernal work of art that is ‘Rock to Hell’, we’re creeping closer and closer to our end goal. The almighty Andrath has stacked another track onto the pile of assorted notes that will audibly darken your surroundings soon! ‘Warbound’ has been laid down for preproduction, with the infamous new sound that we have dubbed “The Pit Demon”-sound. With growling bass guitars, brutalizing guitars, menacing drums, and of course the well-known vocal onslaught that only Nekron can produce.

We’re looking forward to assaulting your neighbors in the future. In the meantime, enjoy this preproduction teaser we released earlier this year, which doesn’t feature the new sonic direction just yet but is quite enjoyable just the same.

!m! ONWARDS !m!

…And this would be Nekron’s first, official post under the new format and website…

Much has been going on in the camp and as RÁN nears further work on the upcoming European tour, it is safe to declare that the new album (Rock to Hell CD/LP/MC) is now in the latter stages of progress. Expect a Youtubed 3 track promo release at a point when we feel it’s appropriate…

Now, this release serves as a sort of ‘Best of/Worst of’ and will contain the following tracks by the rule of 9 (track order may still be shuffled):

  1. Cease the Sun
  2. Rock to Hell
  3. Thrash Black
  4. Warbound
  5. Sólin Deyr
  6. Firestorm
  7. Fables of insanity
  8. Soulblaze (New)
  9. Upheaval (New)

The release celebrates the new, rougher sound of RÁN, but I dare declare that 11 tracks (out of 33) have already been mapped out for work under the title of ‘The Deep’… a full, 3 CD release + a follow-up EP/Mini CD named Upheaval.

Spilling the black beans here: Whereas ‘Rock to Hell’ is somewhat faithful to the Black’n Roll/Black Thrash direction, it seems that ‘The Deep’ is surely set to exhaust our ideas regarding more sinister, Black/Death/Thrash Metal. It shall be Hellish indeed…

Rock and Rule…!m!

Hello Infernal World!

Hello Infernal World!

Hail to you and blackest greetings,

Andrath and Nekron have been slaving away between recording sessions to bring you an updated website for you so you can stay updated on the evil horde that is RÁN. Due to some fancy demonic magicks, anything we publish here will surreptitiously also appear on our social media outlets. Expect tracks, photos and merch to be on offer here soon, so you can get some worthy gear in exchange for some currency and perhaps your soul. We’re not picky.

Anyway, watch this infernal bulletin board for our shenanigans. We’ll catch up later.

Hail,
Andrath

New website, new look!

New website, new look!

It seems that Andrath has more talents, other than scaring people shitless with his 7 stringed behemoth. He used his internet necromancy to register this domain and set up this website! Since this web thing is dynamic and easy to edit, expect some more updates from us. We’ll attempt to keep you in the loop during the production of Rock to Hell, our upcoming album. We’re in the preproduction phase at the moment, and things are sounding pretty good already!

So, please watch this space.

Hail,
Andrath.
