Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that Transience T-shirts of all sizes are back in stock again! They can be found HERE: smarturl.it/Transience-NPR On a related note, we are doing a re-print of the Emergence CD soon as well. Our intention was to have them in by now, but things got delayed so the new ETA is early 2019. I'll post another update once we know more. We wish you all a very nice winter in advance!
Hey people! Bana from Bana Salman - Piano recently graced us with her piano interpretation of "The Chosen Path". There are few things that thrill us more than seeing fellow musicians do their thing, and it goes without saying that we consider it a HUGE honor when people cover one of our songs. Thank you so much for this Bana, we love it! Now excuse me while I'll go practice some more piano... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mL6tgBejySE (Oh and check out her cover for "The Drapery Falls" as well, intense stuff)
Reposting this since it is now finally working in the USA!: Our new album TRANSIENCE is fully available on our Youtube channel! If possible, you would do us a huge favor by visiting the video and/or sharing it with your friends. It helps us to get noticed by Youtube and hopefully reach people who've never heard of the project before, just like it did with "Emergence". Many thanks to all of you who have already supported us in word and deed. You've made this release very special to us! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2madkCfxsA And if you like what we're doing and want to aid us in creating future albums, please consider buying a copy HERE: http://smarturl.it/Transience-Album
Our new album TRANSIENCE is now fully available on our Youtube channel (with another animation by Minghao Xu of course)! If we may request a favor: even if you have heard the album already, please visit the video and/or share it with your friends, so that we can get it rolling on Youtube! On "Emergence" this has made a world of difference to us, so let's see if we can make it work again :) Thank you all VERY much for everything! We hope you are enjoying the new album very much. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2madkCfxsA
For the Dutch folks among you (and those who wield the arcane powers of Google Translate), a review from Zware Metalen (of whom we already had the honor of receiving a review for Emergence back in 2014): https://zwaremetalen.com/albumrecensies/shylmagoghnar-transience This one comes from Marko Bok. Thank you VERY much Marko, both for the review, and for subtly reminding us every now and then that we'd better make this album worthy of your personal year list!
Some wonderful reviews are starting to appear for Transience - thank you all so much, we feel honored! Here are, in no particular order, some that we've received in the past days: Distorted Sound Magazine (English): https://distortedsoundmag.com/album-review-transience-shylmagoghnar/ Kaaoszine (Finnish): http://kaaoszine.fi/melodista-death-metalia-black-metal-vivahteilla-arvostelussa-shylmagogharin-transience/ Taurelin (German): http://taurelin.de/shylmagoghnartransience.htm Our deepest thanks to the writers of these - your personal reactions are all we could have wished for and we hope other listeners will recognize some of your sentiments!
We've recently had the pleasure of doing an interview with the Bulgarian Metal Hangar 18 (thank you kindly once again!). They have been so diligent to post it in both Bulgarian and English, and the result can be read HERE: BULGARIAN: http://metalhangar18.com/site/intervyu-s-shylmagoghnar.mh18 ENGLISH: http://metalhangar18.com/site/intervyu-s-shylmagoghnar.mh18/2 Have a great day everyone!
Our new album TRANSIENCE is finally out! Many thanks go out to the people who have helped us to make this possible. Our partners, artists, family, friends, the Napalm crew and of course all of you who have supported this project over the years! The song in the video is based upon one of the oldest surviving demos of the project, which formed a cornerstone in the writing of this album. Where the previously revealed tracks focused more on melodic black, this one has more of a death/folk metal undertone. Let us tell you a tale of a mysterious messenger who shares with us a series of visions, revealing a terrifying conflux of conflicting paths... Physical and digital copies are available here: http://smarturl.it/Transience-Album
Dear everyone, The moment has come: our new album Transience is releasing! Words cannot describe how glad we are to finally be reaching this day again. We have poured our hearts and minds into this album and we hope the result is a journey that will draw you in deeply – both into our fantasy world and also your own. Let us all for a moment consider how unique it is to experience life in all its imperfection and celebrate our mortality! The people who have pre-ordered on Bandcamp should be able to download the full album now, and most pre-ordered Cds and vinyl from both the label and us should be on their way. If you haven't received a confirmation email from Napalm, check your account for the order status– for some people the email just didn't come through. We expect other digital platforms to follow over the course of the day as well (they all have different schedules, so it's hard for us to estimate exactly). We will also soon be doing an album video on Youtube again, like we did with Emergence, but that one still takes a couple more days. Until then we hope you will enjoy the album from your outlet or streaming service of choice! Enjoy and thank you all VERY much once again for making this possible! May the music bring you closer to your transience... And I you haven't ordered your copy yet, you can do so HERE: http://smarturl.it/Transience-Album

Hey everyone! In between the posts about the upcoming release and pre-orders we wanted to take a moment to just say: thank you all once again for the warm reactions and support to this project. The past few years have really been life-changing for us and we cannot express in words how great it feels to be able to work on something we love and sharing it with people who feel the same deep passion for music. You help us keep the flame alive and we hope we will be able to show our appreciation for this by creating many more albums (be it in Shylmagoghnar or other projects) in the future! Hails from Skirge & Nimblkorg

Time for a FULL SONG REVEAL! Our second album "TRANSIENCE" is releasing on the 29th of June 2018. What better way to introduce it than with the opening track, which is also the title track for the album? Our journey begins with an artist in search of meaning and perfection, finding himself struggling with his mortal boundaries as he embarks on an arduous quest. Follow us beyond a lost dream to where epiphany and insanity go hand in hand. We've poured our hearts and souls into this one... enjoy! You can pre-order a copy of the album here: Napalm Records Store: http://smarturl.it/Transience-NPR Our Bandcamp store: https://shylmagoghnar.bandcamp.com/ Also available as Digital Single: http://smarturl.it/TransienceSingle

A little while ago we had the pleasure of getting to know JPR at METAL ABYSS and what started out as a conversation ended up turning into an interview. The interview was taken before our reveal yesterday, so please ignore that some of our answers are a little outdated. Thank you very kindly JPR, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! And thank you Editor, for being so merciful to edit my shocking typo at short notice...
Dear people, It is with immense pleasure that we are finally able to say: we have a release date for our upcoming album TRANSIENCE! It is set on the 29TH OF JUNE this year and it will be available on CD, Vinyl and of course Digital as well. Together with our allies at Napalm Records, we're already opening up the pre-orders for Vinyl and CD worldwide today, so you can reserve your copy at: Our personal Bandcamp: https://shylmagoghnar.bandcamp.com/album/transience The Napalm Records online store: http://smarturl.it/Transience-NPR Pre-orders for Digital will follow soon as well – and maybe even a full track reveal... so stay tuned for more news! For now, let's celebrate with a preview of a song some of you might already be vaguely familiar with... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjdoBMBAWrM Thank you all so much for the steadfast support over the years. May you love this album to shreds.
Well, it took a while, but it is with great joy that we can finally announce that the recordings for our upcoming album Transience are DONE! I'm currently in the process of mixing/mastering my brains out, and our visual artist Minghao Xu is finalizing the cover artwork. Once we are satisfied with that we'll talk about the release date. Just a little bit longer people, we want to make it worth the wait! Hails from Skirge and Nimblkorg
As promised, here is another teaser for the upcoming album "TRANSIENCE"! This one features some recording footage of the lead guitar and bass on the song "Life", which will be the big instrumental to close the album. It follows the life journey of a being from its conception to its inevitable end. That's all the background info I'll spoil for now; we've often been very positively surprised by the details people picked up on throughout the Emergence album, so... let's see what your imaginations make of this song once it's released! TEASER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNPx4eI-ypo As many of you know, we had originally intended to release the album by the end of this year. That obviously isn't going to work out anymore, but nonetheless we are very positive about the progress that has been made in the past months. Thank you all once again for the support and patience - good news is coming in 2018!
Vinyl Sphere - a new online portal dedicated to vinyl collectors, musicians and general audio aficionados - has done us the honors of reviewing the recently released "Emergence" vinyl, and interviewing Nimblkorg about the goals and techniques behind the Shylmagoghnar project, the choice to re-release on the medium and our future plans. Many thanks to Nikola Savić for the collaboration - it was a pleasure! Interview: http://www.vinyl-sphere.com/interviews/shylmagoghnar-interview/ Review: http://www.vinyl-sphere.com/reviews/review-shylmagoghnar-emergence-double-lp/ The vinyl is a limited edition of 400 pieces, so don't wait too long if you still want to get a copy of your own! Napalm Records Store: http://smarturl.it/EmergenceBlackVinyl Our Bandcamp: https://shylmagoghnar.bandcamp.com/ PS: we have another teaser coming up for one of the new instrumentals in a few days, so stay tuned!
Hey all! For those of you that are planning to: remember to place your vinyl and CD orders in time if you wish for them to arrive before Christmas! Particularly for countries outside of Europe it may take a bit (especially since the postal services tend to be very busy during December), so be aware :) Vinyl: http://smarturl.it/EmergenceBlackVinyl CD & Vinyl: https://shylmagoghnar.bandcamp.com/ (vinyl currently out of stock here, but more incoming soon) Kindest greetings to you!
