Music of the Week – Of The Wand & The Moon – Immer Vorwärts

Time to go back to the neo folk territory again, my fellow readers. :)

This is one of the best songs from the last album (The lone descent, 2011) of one of the most important bands in the whole genre: Kim Larsen’s Of The Wand & The Moon.

Larsen (NOT to be confused with his namesake that played in Gasolin, him too from Denmark) experimented a lot in his career, starting with extreme metal (Doom and Black, with Saturnus) then moving gradually to folk / chansonnier music, penning a string of very good albums, all filled with melancholy and a sense of loss. He collaborated of a lot of artists of the most different genres, even going back to his most extreme roots sometimes (he collaborated a bit on Necrophagia’s “Death Trip 69” album).

This song is a short (running under 3 minutes), moody, introspective and heartfelt piece. I hope you’ll like it.
