Grimnir There's really nothing better than discovering First Wave Dungeon Synth you've never heard before, though always tinged with regret because you know there's one less out there to find.

For fans of Finntroll, this may strike you as a less raucous, simpler precursor to 'Visor om Slutet,' and that, friends and neighbours, is high praise indeed.

WULF Do you love the keyboard-work/atmosphere of excellent Finnish metal bands like Moonsorrow or Finntroll? Trollhorn, the mastermind behind a lot of their material, brings us a collection of instrumental stuff that reminds me of a lot of their folk/ambient interludes. Dungeon synth meets Danny Elfman! Favorite track: The Awakening.

Eric Valerio Brilliant, atmospheric and folky synth from one of the brains behind Finntroll and Moonsorrow. This is the soundtrack to a storybook quest of halflings, dryads and dragons. With dungeon synth thriving, Henri picked a great time to unveil this 17-yr-old gem! Favorite track: The Sleeping.

Mikhail "Sternberg" Poplevichev Hard to point out a favorite. All tracks are so atmospheric and Tolkien'ish, that it's easy to just drown in soundscape created by Henri. Favorite track: The Sleeping.
Barbarian Skull

Barbarian Skull Majestic and nostalgic synth inspired by folklore and the days of old. I'm really disappointed that this never saw a physical release (especially because the original artwork deserves to be printed), but at least we have an official digital version here. Support this so Henri will be convinced to release it physically!! Favorite track: The Awakening.

Raven SixK One could hardly choose their favorite star in the sky as to pick a favorite track, each is unique, peacefully ambient and stirs emotionally. So very Trollhorn, perfection. Favorite track: Through Ages.

about

Lunar Womb was a ambient/ folk/ electronic project of me started in 1995 with a couple of friends. After the first demo I continued alone and released another demo in 1997. In 1998 I got myself some better musical equipment to fulfill my visions and this cassette demo was planned to release in the turn of 1998/1999.

Due to other band- related things, It took me some time to finish it properly but when it was finally ready I felt it was so outdated I didn´t want to release it anymore.

I found the tracks and the layout- files from my backups in 2015 and after careful reconsideration I decided to finish what I had once started and remastered it from the original pieces. All the artwork and layout was originally intended for a cassette release and the music is 100% original except for remastering for a bit more better listening experience.

This release is an important part of my musical history and in a way can be considered the only "solo album" I have ever done- and probably ever will. It can also be found from various places in the internet for free listening or to download but due to numerous requests I am also putting it to bandcamp as lossless files.
I hope the atmosphere and the burning passion and longing for something ancient I was intending to create back then can still be heard over 15 years later.

Enjoy this piece of history,

Henri
