OF THE WAND AND THE MOON (DK)
Friday 06.07.12 - 20:00 - Pavilion
European dark folk or neo-folk is with its minor chords, march rhythms and melancholic vision not a genre that gets much attention.
One of the most prominent bands of the darkened, cultural-pessimistic genre is Of The Wand And The Moon.
The Lone Descent from 2011 frames the mood of an occult mass deep inside a North European forest lit up by torches. But according to the musical mastermind, inspiration is also found in 60s icons such as Lee Hazlewood and Serge Gainsbourg.
Of The Wand And The Moon is beautiful doom music filled with catchy melodies and dark atmosphere.
Label: Heidrunar Myrkrunar / VME
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
