Probably Denmarks most interesting act after OF THE WAND AND THE MOON!
Coming housed in UV glossy jacket with a 16-page lyrics booklet. Hand Of Dust is one of the most interesting acts going on for years in Copenhagen and their debut album from 2015 is a masterpiece in dark / apocalyptic folk! Recorded between 2014 and 2015, the band took its time to refine the style already shown on the very strong “Walk in White” single (Avant! 2014). The dark folk/rock sound of their first two EPs has evolved to a perfect, extended formula on this album! The ten songs defined in martial stomps, semi-acoustic guitars drenched in reverberation and throbbing, vibrant bass lines. A fistful of ballads pregnant with tragedy and unavoidability. There’s no fanfarelike hyperbole here, only a raw, solemn gait marching onward to godknows-where.
“for your seeds and your soils / they’re hollow / your torment and your toils / they’re hollow / of ilk hollow” – Apocalyptic folk in the literal sense.
