The project had already gathered a little fan base when it appeared totally out of nowhere on our radar, because CALADAN BROOD, who have raised the level of greatness in Epic Black Metal to impossible heights with their debut and are quickly becoming our most successful band, are planning a split album with EMYN MUIL, to be released later in 2014.
Since the music is quite similar - both bands play slightly different kinds of Epic Black Metal in the SUMMONING-vein, with EMYN MUIL leaning more towards ambient sounds where C.B. focus more on Black Metal - and EMYN MUIL's songs even deal with contents from the Tolkien-universe, it was natural for us to help the band gain a bigger fan base before we release the split, by reissuing "Túrin Turambar Dagnir Glaurunga", which had previously been self-released in a very small quantity.
Another band that comes to mind when listening to EMYN MUIL is ELFFOR, and since Eöl's project is also one of our faves, with several successful re-releases under the banner of Northern Silence, we think it is a given that fans who enjoy the releases of SUMMONING, CALADAN BROOD, ELFFOR and perhaps WINDIR (another one of EMYN MUIL's main influences) need to get hold of EMYN MUIL's debut, too.
"Túrin Turambar Dagnir Glaurunga" ("Túrin Turambar, the slayer of Glaurung") is the debut album of the Italian solo-project EMYN MUIL.
