Description

We Are Dust – A Tribute To Of The Wand And The Moon” is a tribute album honoring the music of Danish neofolk/dark folk act Of The Wand And The Moon, and the man behind the music – Kim Larsen.
Kim Larsen formed Of The Wand And The Moon in 1998, while a member of doom metal band Saturnus. The debut album “Nighttime Nightrhymes” was released in 1999, and in 2000 Larsen left Saturnus to fully focus on Of The Wand And The Moon. Since then, the project released several influential albums such as “Emptiness Emptiness Emptiness” (2001), “Lucifer” (2003), “Sonnenheim” (2005), “The Lone Descent” (2011) and “Your Love Can’t Hold This Wreath Of Sorrow” (2021) as well as several EP’s, singles and live-releases.
Of The Wand And The Moon started as a pure neofolk/dark folk act continuing the legacy from legendary “apocalyptic folk” acts such as Death In June, Sol Invictus and Current 93, but with a unique sound. This unique approach to dark music quickly turned Of The Wand And The Moon into one of the biggest and most respected “new” acts in the scene. On later albums, Kim Larsen and Of The Wand And The Moon slowly drifted towards a more deeper singer/songwriter inspired song tradition, but maintain the melancholic and dark trademark sound from earlier albums.
“We Are Dust – A Tribute to Of The Wand And The Moon” is the effort of friends, collaborators, and admirers of Larsen’s work. The artists presented here would count Larsen as significantly influential to their impetus to contribute to the world of song, and despite varying availability and schedules, jumped at the opportunity to contribute to this release.

KING DUDE (US), IN RUIN feat. KATI RÁN (US/Holland), NIGHT PROFOUND (Canada), OSI AND THE JUPITER (US), AWEN (US), BLOOD AND SUN (US), DIE WEISSE ROSE (Denmark), CROOKED MOUTH (Canada/Lithuania), BY THE SPIRITS (Poland), SOLBLOT (Sweden), INMOST DESCENT (US) and CRADLE OF JUDAH (US).
