Of The Wand & The Moon (stylized as :Of The Wand & The Moon:) is the neofolk/experimental project of Danish musician Kim Larsen and various guest contributors.

Overview[edit]

After irreconcilable differences with his previous musical project,[1] Saturnus, Larsen began writing music of a different vein, similar in style to his neofolk influences but different than the doom metal he had previously created.

In 1999, the debut :Of The Wand & The Moon: album was released, entitled Nighttime Nightrhymes.

2001 saw the release of a second :Of The Wand & The Moon: release entitled Emptiness:Emptiness:Emptiness:.

After the release of a split album with Sol Invictus and a few vinyl singles, a collection of b-sides was released entitled Lucifer in 2003.

A single entitled "Hail Hail Hail" was released in 2005.

The greatest critical acclaim has been given to the album The Lone Descent from 2011, called a neofolk masterpiece. [2]
