It is said that the gods of the dead demand you ritualistically commit to each intensely hot beat of the ceremonial drum.

Now, here, is the music for their celebration of death, music to dance together with, to oblivion, a music both spectacular and ecstatic where, like never before, the spirits of santería and vaudou mix with raw electricity into burning diabolical polyrhythms.

We here present Cut Hands and Festival Of The Dead

Festival Of The Dead is the new full-length studio album from William Bennett‘s Cut Hands, due to be released by Blackest Ever Black on 2xLP, CD and digital formats on October 13th, 2014.

This is Cut Hands‘ third album to date: the acclaimed Afro Noise I introduced the project in 2011, and 2012’s Black Mamba expanded its feverish vision, preceded by a single of the same name on Blackest Ever Black. 2013 saw the release of the similarly fiery ‘Madwoman’ and ‘Damballah 58’ 12″s (on Downwards and BEB respectively).

Festival of The Dead is without doubt the most potent distillation yet of Cut Hands‘ malign percussive energy, with pieces like ‘The Claw’ and ‘Vaudou Take Me High’ leading the irresistible polyrhythmic assault, in pursuit of one thing: a final rapturous celebration of oblivion.

Written and produced by William Bennett. Original veve artwork by Mimsy DeBlois. Mastered by Noel Summerville. 2xLP (BLACKESTLP010) housed in high gloss gatefold sleeve. Also available on CD and digital formats.

Aidan Casserly release ebook “A place for the Skulls”

Aidan Casserly, vocalist of Empire State Human and KuBO, releases his first poetry ebook

“A place for the Skulls” today. Released through Smashwords, it is Aidan Casserly’s second collection of poems (“Chasing Vapours” being his first). Covered design by Haiminh Le at Fontpusher, London.

If you enjoy intimate, personal and slightly darker themes to your poems, then look no further than “A place for the Skulls”. Influenced by the likes of Christina Rossetti, Anais Nin, W. Blake, Edgar Allan Poe, and E.E. Cummings.

There’s a tender and sensitive narrative at work within these works. Aidan peels back the layers within, to expose his most personal thoughts, delivering tender and heartfelt poetry, that encapsulates ideas in the minimum of words. Lifting the reader out of the ordinary, to give glimpses of a more illumining reality.

Where prose may seek to explain, poetry merely states, convincing the reader through its own power. Poems that engage the heart of the reader, and at times, when necessary, offer hope from seemingly painful experiences.

If you want to feel a oneness with your poetry, than look no further than “A place for the skulls”.
