Merankorii is now Creative Commons

Merankorii is now Creative Commons. What does this mean? Well, it basicly means that anyone is free, for any track from Merankorii, to download it, rip it, share it, play it or even remix it. If you're interested, check more details here.

If you like Merankorii and want to support it, please still consider buying Merankorii's albums: it's the money I make with each release that helps me work in the next one. Still, this license will simply set you free of all restraints in matters like giving the music to your family or friends, and this surely sets legal the copies of Merankorii that end up in places like Peer to Peer networks.

Merankorii news

Just a quick update:
The CD version of Sanguine, Merankorii's forth release, that was released as a split with Bardic Wisdom, was limited to 50 copies, and there are now only 4 copies left. So, if you want to have a chance to have this release in CD, hurry up and order it! The price for this CD is still 4€.

I've just changed the music player in this website, so it now has the same tracks as before and also "A Second Vision" - just take a look in the side bar and press "play" in the music player in there.

Also, if you can now download "A Second Vision" here, so.. go ahead: download it and share it with your friends!

Nothing is way too complex, and I never found something as complex as the human mind. But one thing is to understand something complex, the other is de-compexing it in order to transmit it - and that's the rational meaning behind Merankorii's minimalism.

As I've told you before, "Sanguine", a split with Bardic Wisdom, is going to be released in both Cassete and CD-R.

This release is limited to 50 Cassete copies and 50 CD-R's, and is going to see the light of day at the 15th of May, in 12 days! Keep updated...

Reviews - Melencolia III on Opuskulo

Opuskulo reviewed Merankorii's latest album, Melencolia III.

I liked the review, even if the result numbers out as a 5/10, since the explanation for that is that this work is of a "not a simple assimilation".

The review is in Portuguese.

Tuesday, February 27, 2007


As you know, Merankorii's latest album, Melencolia III, was released under the label of Nekrogoat Heresy Productions, a label that only releases Portuguese bands. NHP is a sub-label of War Flagellation Productions, also a label for obsure and dark sounds, but that words with worldwide bands.

A new release will see the light of day - an effort from those two labels - and that combines the dark ambient sounds of Merankorii and those of Australia's Bardic Wisdom: a split that will have two releases: one in K7 and other in CD.

Merankorii's side is going to be called "Sanguine", and is where the whole concept that begun with "O Monólogo do Mudo" is going to end.

Some answers for questions I already heard:

  • Sanguine is going to be the last album of the tetralogy. Yet, it doesn't mean that it will mark the end of Merankorii - it's exactly the oposite. Sanguine will open new doors to be explored in the works that will come after it...
  • A split release is basicly a release where two albums coexist in the same media. In this case, you'll be able to get one release (one K7 or one CD) and, in it, you'll find two albums: Sanguine from Merankorii and one other from Bardic Wisdom.
I'll surely give you more news on this matter, as things roll out...

Merankorii - Interview

Paula Simões, a Portuguese blogger and Merankorii fan, after getting her copy of Melencolia III, decided to interview me an publish it on the web. Under the subtitle "The book that turn out to be music", the interview shows you a little more about Merankorii in general and Melencolia III in particular. From talking about the begginings of Merankorii and what led me to creating it, to previsions about the future path of Merankorii, this is an interview that I really consider interesting. So, without further introduction, here is is.

I really want to give a big THANK YOU to Paula for doing this, and a notice for you all: if you're interested in interviewing me or reviewing Melencolia III, feel free to contact me.

Psyche (lyrics)


I don't cry
Just because you see I must
I don't feel
Why can you want - want
Not even me
There's no escape...
There's no...

- and the is shading black-blue of violet red
- and I don't cry


- noise

Static Psyche: Static Psyche
Chaos -
Don't make me wake up,
Let me dream,
I don't want to wake up...
...not to death.

"Melencolia III" is OUT NOW!

"Melencolia III", the third Merankorii album is OUT NOW!

With a title that shows the inspiration with Dürer's work, Melencolia III, the third Merankorii album, was released today, and, with all the pre-orders that were made (if you're one of those who pre-ordered it, you're going to recieve your copy soon, probably today), more than twenty are already sold.

Many would deverve a big THANK YOU for being who they are and doing what they do, but all of those that helped me to create this album probably know that they are a part of it, so, instead of telling names, I'm just saying: "Thank You".

I have to make an exception to Nekrogoat Heresy Productions' crew, for believing in my work and, by making this their first release, making all this possible.
