Of The Wand & The Moon
Emptiness Emptiness Emptiness
The Missing Fragments
Label: Armalyte Industries (2016)
Debut album from alternative legend Marc Heal, frontman of CUBANATE, C-TEC, PIGFACE and ASHTRAYHEAD, following on from the recent Adult Fiction EP and last years sold out Compound Eye EP
The album features ten brand new tracks recorded in Singapore and in many cases inspired by life in the chaotic megacities of the east. The album is named after the mysterious throbbing and groaning sound that has been reported and occasionally recorded worldwide in recent years. No-one is certain of the cause of the noise. Well, it was quite a mysterious process to me. I hadnt been inspired to write music in such a long time. For years I did nothing. Suddenly I couldnt stop. I wrote 16 songs in 5 weeks, says Marc.
Although still using hard electronics and rooted in industrial music, the sound of the album is quite different from the chanting techno that characterised Cubanate. Lyrically dense, with a darker, more melodic feel, 'The Hum' is an altogether more personal album than anything Marc has produced before.
