Hailing from Edinburgh, Scotland, Husband-and-wife two piece Hand Of Kalliach arose in December 2020 with the launch of their fascinating debut EP, “Shade Beyond.”
As their touching eclectic Atmospheric Celtic Metal sound is defined by distilled Scottish, Gaelic and Celtic overtones, blended with a poisonous Melodeath Metal foundation, it was picked up very quickly by stations and playlists as ‘January’s Band Of The Month‘ on the Midnight Hour Show on Metal Meyhem Radio.
Whilst influenced by Folk Music, Hand Of Kalliach creates minimal use of traditional instruments, instead lifting rhythms, time signatures and patterns from Folk Music and adapts them for distorted guitars.
|05.||In Tempest Wrought||(07:08)|
The tracks of “Shade Beyond” range in atmosphere from the charged energy of “In Tempest Wrought” and “White Horizon,” to the raw aggression of “Fathoms” and the Darker intonations of “Fàilte,” and to the more Classic Metal punch of “Overwhelm.”
Sophie Fraser / Vocals, Bass
John Fraser / Vocals, Guitars, Drums
The overwhelming mixture of the multi-talented pair is truly as unique as it is hypnotic – just dare to imagine a deeply lovely voice like Sarah Brightman‘s, as in “White Horizon,” where the vocals then soar into gripping epic visions of world escape!
