Osi and the Jupiter emerge from the shadowy forests of Ohio and join forces with Eisenwald. Sean Deth (also the frontman/bassist of Burial Oath and Witchhelm) offers his multi-instrumental talent in honor to Northern pagan traditions and in worshipful tribute to the peaceful finality of death.

From its birth in 2015, the focus of the project has been on the spiritual connection between nature and the will of the old Gods – channelled through various representations of life, death and rebirth, this connection speaks through these musical creations, resonating as wordless tributes to these nebulous yet fundamental concepts.
Osi and the Jupiter has been compared with musical groups such as Wardruna, Forndom, and Ulver by both fans and reviewers alike, an association that underlines the absorbing sonic soundscapes sculptured. ‘Uthuling Hyl’ is both the story of unheralded songs amongst the shadows of existence and a soundtrack to a journey across unknown realms ruled by ancient Gods. Join us in this journey and embrace the ritualistic ambience of pagan worship.
