It is with great pride that I am finally able to present ERRAUNT – The Portent LP. Some on this forum may recall the limited cassette release from 2015 that barely had time to settle before it was sold-out. Here, exactly 2 years from the original date of public (digital) release, is the second physical issue of this forward-thinking, lucid album, offering once more the chance for you to tangibly ponder the enigmatic dream that is The Portent in all of its trepidation and wonder.

European Distribution will be available soon from Blood Harvest Records.

*12” Black Vinyl
*Limited to 200 hand-numbered copies
*Black/Green/Metallic Silver spot color jacket and inner sleeve
*Includes 4 distinct tarot-styled prints (back print displayed in photo) housed in a bespoke, hand-crafted/printed, wax-sealed envelope

Every so often, a band emerges and offers a piece of music that takes the reigning dogma of a genre and basically ignores it. The result is something alien but, for its vacancy of expectations, oddly familiar, like a dream bleeding into wakefulness.
Paradoxically, rarely does such ambition leave room for a gray area; either the work is a marked success or a disaster. In running such a risk, Erraunt manages to capture the same kind of magic present in albums like Ulver’s "Bergtatt..." or Ved Buens Ende’s "Written in Waters".
Hazy, desolate, and mystical, The Portent is black metal unconcerned with popularity or satisfying a chip on its shoulder and is content, rather, to simply remain lost in its own dream.
