 We have finally returned to something resembling a normal disposition after four
 days of partying night and day in Leipzig at Runes + Men. We thoroughly enjoyed
 performing for such a receptive audience - thank you everyone! Thanks also to all at
Equinox Organisation for making it happen and running it so efficiently. I'd personally
like to thank my dear friend Cornelius Waldner from Sagittarius, for joining us with 
his piano for the last five songs of our set (see below).

We have surplus T-Shirts (and Badges which I neglected to put out!) that are now
available to purchase from our BANDCAMP page, in a range of different sizes and in

The 'Interregnum' Saga

As some readers may be aware, the forthcoming album INTERREGNUM is yet to make
its physical presence known. I completed mixing and producing the songs earlier this
year and sent the tracks to Soundtempel Studios in Austria for mastering. Unfortunately,
the message came back that I had produced the final mix too loud thus leaving no room
for mastering. This has meant literally starting the whole mix from scratch, which I will be
 doing with the help of Stefan Traunmuller and Matt Howden, it will take some time
due to my being busy with While Angels Watch and Transmission Control Division in a
 live capacity as well as struggles with life outside of music. So no more release dates,
it will be here when it's here. I have worked alone on this album and it has been a
painful journey on both emotional and practical levels, so I am taking a break from it to
 enjoy the live side of music for a while. See you at a gig somewhere in Europe soon!



Thank you to the faithful who attended SIG☼04, the INDEPENDENCE day show, your
prescence at Sowilo Media evenings continues to underline the true spirit of Neofolk
music, and this event combined three related bands perfectly.

The While Angels Watch performance was [unknowingly] recorded and we feel the quality
is good enough to be released as a download from our BANDCAMP site. Please visit the
following link for a free listen and/or download: While Angels Watch at the Underworld 

We played an acoustic set with our full line up and look forward to playing our more
amplified set in Leipzig later this year. Finally, a review of  INDEPENDENCE DAY by
BLAUEROSEN can be viewed HERE

Thank you to everyone who attended the Sowilo☼Media [SIG☼03] event,
featuring CHANGES and ANDREW KING. It was an unforgettable, intimate
show of true friendship and brotherhood, made possible by all of you and

finally gracing our shores and, along with Andrew King, performed emotionally
 charged and enchanting sets.

More news to follow soon

Runes & Men Festival 2013




















AFTER a long period of thought, Dev from While Angels Watch has
decided to launch Sowilo☼Media as a vehicle for musical and artistic
ventures. This is in order to establish & maintain aesthetic control of
each release including the reissue of the back catalogue which has
long been unavailable. The idea is also to promote events, the first of
which will be announced soon.

With the independent music industry crumbling under the pressure it is
time to take the bull by the horns. However, that is not to say that the
band wish to renounce any association with other independent labels
or artists who have pride in what they do and only a secondary
concern for profit and a pocketful of gold. For example... a release
with Ahnstern is in progress.



WHILE Angels Watch wrote and narrate the opening track, Willow and
Arrow-Wood, on what we are informed is the final Oda Relicta
 album. If this turns out to be true then we have lost a talent. However,
U.I.A. is perhaps their finest & most cohesive work to date & therefore
would make a worthy adieu. U.I.A. is available at the SHOP on this site.

The official press-release:
Oda Relicta's "Ukrainian Insurgent Army" is a union of politics, religion
and music. The controversial agenda of the recording is exposed
through 13 connoisseur compositions ranging from military marches to
solemn chants to field recordings featured by a rank of artistic
collaborations with While Angels Watch, Furvus, :Golgatha:, Dissonant
Elephant, Lonsai Maikov, Gnomonclast, Luftwaffe, and Our God Weeps.
A complex tapestry of church hymns and procession marches,
Cossack patriotic chants and Legion of Ukrainian Sich Riflemen songs is
the spirit of a true Ukrainian nationalist. There is no abuse of hackneyed
documentaries or copycatting of profane neo-folk genre; instead, there
is harmony, passion, and wisdom conserved in laconic sonorities.
Triumphing over double standard European political correctness this
milestone is released exclusively upon the anniversary of the UIA,
celebrated on the 14th of October, 2012"



FEATURING two vocal performances from While Angels Watch [Children
of the Sea and Harvest Moon Rising
], the new CD album from German
Neoclassical artist Sagittarius is called The Kingdom Come and is
available now from Cold Spring Records.

"Recorded between 2008 & 2011 & influenced by the intellectual world of the German
poet Stefan George, "The Kingdom Come" contains 18 songs with a playing time of 65
mins. With Sagittarius now grown to a full four piece line-up featuring new members
Herr Twiggs (Kammer Sieben) on vocals and Theresia W. on oboe, and once again
assisted by a number of highly gifted guest musicians, Sagittarius has managed to
conceive a unique and outstanding album in the tradition of the classic European Art
Song, blending sophisticated neoclassical music with a touch of suicidal folk noir."



WHILE Angels Watch wish to thank everyone who attended the Central
London event on May 17th 
at such short notice. As always, your prescence
made the evening for us. We will endeavour
to provide more warning next
time! P
ictures of the show will be  uploaded to the gallery shortly. 




                         NO RED SEAS

No Red Seas

in support of SEA SHEPHERD
and their mission to stop the brutal mass
killing of Dolphins and Whales and protection of marine life. While Angels
Watch contribute

please pay more if you are able.



WHILE Angels Watch wish to thank everyone who came to the London show
at the Slimelight on 25th June to see them perform alongside 6Comm and
Sol Invictus. Also to those who couldn't make it but offered support and
were present in spirit.

As many of you will know, the fact that the concert went ahead was a victory
in itsel
f, but, what underlined the events success was the comradery of
those who attended in the face of spite and ignorance.

The money generated will go towards the ongoing legal costs that are
[unfortunately] necessary to pursue those who would censor future music
and art events of this nature. A special thanks to organisers Gaya and
Patrick and to Mak at the club for his resolve.



WHILE waiting for new material why not take the opportunity to experience some of my music from before While Angels Watch. For more information about this little known and short-lived post punk outfit, click on the Tom's Midnight Garden tab from the menu to the left. The CD 'To Kill a Klown'

DEV lends his voice to 'The Sound of War' on the new album from german
RitualFolk act :Golgatha: - The Horns Of Joy will be released on July 1st
2011 through Trisol and marks a new chapter for the band.



       Thanateros - Visions of Love & Death

THIS compilation is dedicated to the morbid photo-erotic art of Helmut
Wolech, one of the true Vienna underground icons. The German cultural
magazine IKONEN selected musicians who either share a strong
connection with the artists topics - the relationship of Love and Death
[Thanatos and Eros] or are colleagues of the artist and/or magazine. While
Angels Watch perform a unique cover of the Eurythmics song '
The music ranges between melodic, apocalyptic pop, folk, ambient, bleak
and industrial. A blend also represented in Helmut's work, playful, yet dark
and haunting. For orders and further information:
