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. 

They've just concluded recording their sophomore full-length, which is due out later this year on Vinyl/Cassette/Digital via Furious Hooves.

"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
