Of the Wand and the Moon - Nighttime Nightrhymes

: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.

I just felt like posting this one now. For the last days of winter you could enjoy some nice neo-folk from Denmark. Especially when the snow is falling outside in the woods....
