Runemagick is back and playing their first show in 13 years at Kill-Town Deathfest which would have been an immediate purchase for me if I had known about it sooner. (600 tickets only)

Nicklas Rudolfsson also announced a new album is in the works for 2018. I very much enjoyed their latest, Dawn of the End, and feel they work great as a 3 piece since Darkness Death Doom (which is one of my favorites by them).

So let's get some Runemagick discussions going. What's your favorite albums and did you like them more as a 4-piece or their current 3-piece lineup as of today? I think they make some of the best Death/Doom out there, and especially from Sweden.

Lately been revisiting some of their works and both Moon of the Chaos Eclipse and Darkness Death Doom are solid slabs of doom/death, the latter being quite an epic variant of that style. The Supreme Force of Eternity is alright too, but a bit too passive for me at times, even of the guitar tone on that record is fantastic.

Nice bit of good news! All of their releases that I've heard are great, but The Supreme Force of Eternity is my favorite of their old death metal stuff and Darkness Death Doom is my favorite of their doom/death material. Hoping for some new music with the reunion.

Good to hear that Runemagick are back in business. I also really like Dawn of the End, so I'm hoping the long time out of the game isn't going to sully their new output.

Yes! Just bought a shirt from them recently and was wondering if they were gearing up for a comeback with this sudden availability of merch! So excited for new esoteric death-doom!

Absolutely awesome news. DDD is a monument, their early stuff (helpfully compiled on "Dark Dead Earth") has some real winners on it, especially the album and the song "Enter the Realm of Death." Also a big fan of "Dawn of the End" and its weird wanderings - a mix of that style with more of that DDD groove would be tremendous.

All about Envenom, great album. Just love the slowness of it, makes me zone out a bit. Good to hear they're coming back. Looking forward to it.

Yeah, Envenom is a bit of an outlier in their career with the massive songs and how slow it is. I love it, too. Another album in that vein would be hugely welcomed!

good store with some good selection. You will not find any physical music, however. Runemagick is so limited with their albums.

I was real into them for a while about three years back, but fell off for a myriad of reasons... life changed up and when that happens I tend to switch listening habits. And this band's music, like many extreme metal bands, needs a climate different from the sunny Florida I live in to really get max effect.

But damn though - whenever I turn on an album of theirs it sounds great. Playing Death Darkness Doom in the car yesterday - shit; this is probably one of the best albums I've ever heard. And Incantation of Magick and Dawn of the End are more expansive and experimental in ways, taking the sound further. Also great.

Can't wait for more.

"On Funeral Wings." First one I bought, and "Dragon of Doom" is one of my favorite metal songs. I need to check out the 2015 demo. Missed that somehow.

http://nirucon.storenvy.com is where I got my Runemagick shirt. They also have some HeavyDeath stuff too.

Most of their discography is available digitally on Bandcamp, I keep hectoring them to do some vinyl re-releases. Maybe with the success of the last HeavyDeath and this reunion, they will finally get around to it.

Thanks!! I own The Supreme Force of Eternity which is my favourite Runemagick album but someday I’ll try and pick up some of the others. Probably on the secondary market.
