Born out of a series of feedback rituals in the summer of 2012, Blackrune is a Savannah trio digging deep into the local swamplands in search of the buried roots of heavy music. Like a dark dust cloud settling across the mind's eye, the deceptively unassuming trio of Chris Goggans, Matt McCullough and PM Goerner use rock instrumentation to paint blissfully foggy pictures of the fantastic and the mystical in dense, dark shades. Standing at the altar of Sabbath, Floyd, Spacemen 3, and Sunn 0))), Blackrune compels the ancient knowledge of their instruments in an iconoclastic pursuit of modern musical sciences such as neo-psychedelia, dark shoegaze, atmospheric black metal, and hypnotic noise. Their EP Omphalos came out Summer 2013 as a preface to their debut full-length Palustrine Hegemon which came out 2014. 

April 2016 saw the release of Blackrune's sophomore full-length on limited edition cassette and digital. Dead Temples is a musical-literary fantasy-odyssey in nine parts, drawing inspiration from mythology, occult history, film, and literature on a journey to explore the fringes of post-rock, psychedelia, and the esoteric soundtrack as a standalone experience. Weaving together themes and images from sources like the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Roman pagan lore, Dante's Inferno, and 'The Outer Limits,' 'Dead Temples' hopes to inspire a transportive experience in the fantasy world that exists between everyday experiences.

"Blackrune drape themselves in Southern Gothic ritual. From the ebon art work to the tactile script – even a name that burns sinisterly with its implications – but it’s all a façade into a rather spiritual and otherworldly plane." – KEXP
