ALLERSEELEN had re-released Autdaruta, or WITHOUT LIGHT MEN SHOULD DIE

ALLERSEELEN had re-released an early cassette, Autdaruta, on CD. After it, rather in 2018 than in 2017, the legendary band will release a German edition of Blutleuchte book and CD (https://www.facebook.com/gerhard.hallstatt.blutleuchte). The German versions of the texts of Blutleuchte will be very different from the original ones, says Gerhard Hallstatt.

"Sometimes I am moved with an unintelligible uneasiness when I have to teach Autdaruta. I have a feeling that it is the devil incarnate I have in front of me. When I wanted to start teaching the heathens today, again this horror to look into the face of Autdaruta took hold of me, and I was forced to let them wait while I went down to the coast to arm myself in the solitude with a prayer to the Almighty God.“ (Knud Rasmussen, The People of the Polar North)

As Gerhard put it, "the music then was quite different from nowadays".

My opinion is that both albums are really great. We have two-in-one: old good one industrial classics album from 1989 and brand new one now. I love the sound and the very idea of the album.

Autdaruta is a series of CDs. It is Nr 3.

“Years ago, I read in the book Shamanic Voices: A Survey of Visionary Narratives by Joan Halifax about a shaman in Greenland named Autdaruta. I was fascinated not only by his name but also by the magic and tragedy of his fate: He seems to have murdered several people in his youth. Later on he became aware of his magical and mystical powers and became a famous shaman, visionary and story teller to his tribe. Many years later, he for some reason decided to become a Christian. His spirits warned him not to convert. They told him that they would leave him forever. But he did not listen to them. After his baptism he suddenly realized that his magical and visionary powers had gone. Even his name Autdaruta had disappeared: He was given the Danish name Christian Poulsen. Knud Rasmussen got to know him on one of his Thule expeditions to Greenland. Autdaruta was one of his guides as he was familiar with the many fjords and the strong currents in the region. Knud Rasmussen spent a lot of time with him and wrote down many of his narrations for his book The People of the Polar North.” (Gerhard Hallstatt 2004)

“His eyes always made me doubtful. I only remember to have seen that timorous, despairing look in the eyes of a stricken reindeer. Sometimes a twitch would shoot across his face that would give him an extraordinary resemblance to a tired and tamed wild beast. And that was about what he was. The ruthless murderer had been appalled one day by his own deeds; and now he was tamed – though whether it were the priest or the remembrance of his own deeds that had restrained him, who shall say?” (Knud Rasmussen, The People of the Polar North)

Frühgeschichte I. Schwartzer Rab

AORCD15 / AHNSTERN 52

mein Seel, mein Geist

gehn von mir aus

schwarzstinckend Gifft

ein heszlich Grausz

gleich wie ein schwartzer Rab ich bin

 

my soul, my spirit

doth depart from me

noisome black venom

abomination

a black raven I be

“1989, the year when Allerseelen was founded, appears to me like 1889 or 1789. It was a very special time. It was a fin de siècle. I recall very well the recording process of the early Allerseelen cassettes, drumming on old kettle-drums, scratching on a second-hand violin, making percussion on human bones, recording strange sounds like fire, metals, ravens. All these sounds and melodies and rhythms were combined in a very strange way. This is a never-ending journey as today I still use these archaic melodies and rhythms in new songs from time to time. Allerseelen has always been very close to alchemy, and I am glad that nothing has exploded in my alchemical chamber – at least so far. (...) These days and years before the internet were exciting. I had friends all over the world, and we sent cassettes and little magazines to each other. We had time for long letters, and it was a wonderful moment when the postman arrived with a handful of letters and little parcels. All this appears to me now not like the twentieth but almost like the nineteenth century. But maybe this happened in medieval times, maybe even in prehistory? In some ways, it was as if we recorded our cassettes and photocopied our little magazines in the shadow of menhirs, dolmens, stone circles. Everything was archaic, simple. (...)  I copied the early Allerseelen cassettes on my cassette recorder and the cassette recorder of my grandmother, who was the only one in my family who showed some interest in my music and art and also way of life. She had her roots in Poland, and some months before her death she decided to learn Polish again. Thus for me she never died, as in my imagination she is somewhere in Poland. Maybe I will come across her one day in the lanes of a small town in Poland. Or maybe one day she will show up at one of our concerts in this country.” (Gerhard Hallstatt interview in Blackastrial 5 / 2009, Poland)
