Minnesota’s TVAER and CANIS DIRUS sign to Bindrune Recordings!


“We had been sullenin the sweet air that’s gladdened by the sun;we bore the mist of sluggishness in us:now we are bitter in the blackened mud.”

The Minneapolis quartet, Tvaer, have experienced a very busy couple of years since their inception in the form of countless live appearances and 3 releases under their belts which all harness a raw yet melodically charged form of black metal. There is a fire and unique atmosphere lurking at the creative core of this band, along with their self motivated attitude that feels like a perfect fit within the already artistically charged Bindrune roster of bands.

Along with more shows planned this year, the band shall be recording their debut full-length for Bindrune, featuring songs from their demos, mixed with new material as well. We cannot wait to experience Tvaer’s development and bring their music to a wider audience!

More news shall be unearthed in the coming days/weeks.

Canis Dirus

“Canis Dirus is an expression of the life, death and rebirth cycle of our own existence. It is the dichotomy of loss andgain, birth and death, sorrow and triumph as well as prey and predator. Taking the name from the dire wolf, a prehistoric apex predator which existed in our own area of the world over 100,000 years ago, our music is an exploration of the brutal nature that surrounds us.“

Bindrune continues to nurture the firestorm set deep within the Minnesotan landscapes, this time embracing the tortured and emotive black metal style of the long running duo, Canis Dirus. Featuring the open minded and unique writing style of sole songwriter of the band, Todd Paulson (Uvall, Celestial Sea and Dormant), Canis Dirus has evolved dramatically from humble black metal beginnings, to be a truly scary musical entity that reflects and redirects some really rather scaring life trials and tribulations into the stripped bare and interesting union of black metal and folk. Rob Hames’ vocals further stir this intense union through unhinged screams and more of a narrated chanting style.

It has been 7 long years since the bands Anden Om Norr full-length… a lot has happened on a personal level during that time and we are thrilled to unleash their impending new full-length upon all of you! More info shall be made available in the coming weeks. /
