(Dark Folk - Tesco - Copenhagen)

«Of the Wand & the Moon are one of the big guns of contemporary neofolk. Arriving a generation after founders like Death in June, Sol Invictus, and Current 93, Of the Wand & the Moon have breathed new life into this beautiful and perennially misunderstood genre. OTWATM’s 2011 The Lone Descent LP is widely regarded as a neofolk masterpiece.
Of The Wand & The Moon is the creative live and recorded music works of Danish musician Kim Larsen (not to be confused with the Danish folk singer by the same name) 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.
Characterized by folk songs with themes ranging from expressions of love, loss, joy and ancestral Germanic paganism, Of the Wand & the Moon is best described as experimental, dark ambient neofolk. When their debut album “Nighttime Nightrhymes” came out in 1999 it marked a new entry for Denmark in a new wave of Germanic post-industrial folk projects, alongside contemporaries such as Forseti and Sonne Hagal.»

→ THE DARK RED SEED (King Dude´s guitarist)
(Dark Folk - Prophecy Records - Usa)

«The Dark Red Seed is the musical outlet of Tosten Larson, guitarist for Seattle dark folk musician King Dude. A self-coined 'metaphor for the heart', The Dark Red Seed represents a direct reference to life – and death – itself. The duo, which also includes King Dude engineer Shawn Flemming, is now about to release its debut EP, "The Dark Red Seed Stands with Death".
Raised in Kalispell, Montana and currently based in Portland, Oregon, Tosten Larson began his classical instruction as a young boy sitting at his grandmother's piano. Firmly rooted in thetraditions of American music, Larson's sound is equally shaped by art rock such as Swans and Six Organs of Admittance, Eastern masters like Kayan Kalhor and Ravi Shankar, and hard rock staples such as Led Zeppelin and Neil Young. Though he wears his influences on his sleeve, his music attempts to defy category and carve its own path.»

(Néofolk / Coldwave - Le Recours Aux Fôrets Productions - Paris,FR)

"Recently released their chilling and somber full length debut Conqueror of Emptiness. The eight track record is adrift in Parisian poesy and nihilistic existentialism channelled through hushed vocals softly reverberating over an icy fusion of electric and acoustic guitars"
(By Post-punk.com)

"Un savoir-faire et un sens de l’ambiance. Le reste est à l’avenant, et les choix esthétiques de Vesperal laissent entendre sa non-orthodoxie. Et ça n’est pas pour nous déplaire, figurez-vous"
(By Obskure.mag)

"Vesperal prouve avec ces huit morceaux que le néofolk en France a de beaux jours devant lui"
(By Mithra! Templezine)

"It’s best to let its minimalism slide for the sake of analyzing their cathedral-esque composition, which is remarkable for a band of their stature"
(By Musicishorrible)
