Aurora Borealis proudly presents BLOOD OF THE BLACK OWL 'A Feral Spirit'. Following on from the debut self-titled album on Bindrune Records in 2006, a primitive fusion of slow tempo Earth Metal & Woodland Ritualistic Doom, an ode to the more destructive and primal elements found in not only nature, but in Black Metal and trance inducing Funeral Doom as well, 'A Feral Spirit' takes the journey further into the heart of the forest. Combining Native American shamanic influence and the Germanic nature worship of his own heritage with an entirely transcendent musical vision, BLOOD OF THE BLACK OWL gives praise to the spirits of nature and the unspoken bonds that tie man, beast and environment. With elements of Doom Metal, ambient, ritual and native musics in evidence throughout the album, BLOOD OF THE BLACK OWL involve the listener in a timeless and spiritually expansive journey of discovery, evaluation and reflection over the course of the album's 71 minutes. "A personal cleansing woven through audible passages of earthbound ritualistic transcendence".
