Of The Wand And The Moon - The Lone Descent [2011]

:Of the Wand & the Moon: is the creative live and recorded music works of musician Kim Larsen from Denmark and various guest contributors.

After irreconcilable differences with his previous musical project, Saturnus, Larsen began writing music of a different vein, similar in style to his neofolk influences but very different than the doom metal he had previously created.

In 1999, the debut :Of the Wand & the Moon: album was released, entitled Nighttime Nightrhymes. Characterized by folk songs with themes ranging from expressions of love, loss, joy and ancestral Germanic paganism, the album was interspersed with experimental dark ambient pieces and tribal drumming. The album marked a new entry for Denmark in a new wave of Germanic post-industrial folk projects alongside contemporaries such as Forseti and Sonne Hagal.

Their newest output... Beautiful neofolk covered with noisy and dark ambient. Perfect for dark winter nights.
