Ravenhelm Going On Indefinite Hold

U.S. based blackened folk metal act Ravenhelm has checked in with the following update about going on hiatus:

"Ravenhelm back in 2009 and early 2010 has officially finished off the writing and recording of Runemal which took me 8/9 months of work. the release date will soon be announced, the album however will be released with Ziekte Records this summer. I also plan on re-recording a 'majority' of the debut album 'Through Pagan Mist' probably late late late 2010. Which I hope to find a label to release, most likely to go in Ziekte Records as well.Plans are underway for a split album with Appalachian Winter. The tracks for my portion of the album are.... 1.) I, Brother Wolf 2.) Mountain Cabin 3.) Forest Spirits I Speak

"None of these are yet to be written but they will be done shortly after I am finished with the upcoming demo for my Doom/Death side band, VanityVania. There are also plans for one final full length album titled, 'Raven's Caw' to be started on in 2011. Afterwards, the future for Ravenhelm is unknown to me. I have been growing more and more disgusted with the hypocritical natures and politics that govern this so called 'scene.'

"Further more, I want to experiment with new sounds, genres and styles. I can't ever become better if I limit my possibilities as an artist, so I am deciding after all of these 'planned' releases, I am putting Ravenhelm on a state of hold because of other musical interests at the moment.

"If I decide to re-establish this project, it will further incorporate my other new interests unless I feel that I hunger for the older roots of things. I however feel that, the likelihood of me doing so is growing ever slim. Ravenhelm was my first ever recording project. Being so, I want my future work not tainted by my past failures with Ravenhelm. It was a fun project while it lasted, but being my first hands on experience with actual recording of music, the first time I ever really put music together beyond riffing a few years back. My interests in this project has shifted in the past months, I will see what is the fate of this project to unfold."
