1 - HANDS OF ORLAC/THE WANDERING MIDGET - SPLIT - (CD) 
CRUZ DEL SUR


The worlds of occult metal and colossal doom collide on the HANDS OF ORLAC and THE WANDERING MIDGET split, set for aSeptember 8 release via Cruz Del Sur Music.Featuring four contributions from Italian/Swedish occult metal troupe HANDS OF ORLAC and one 18-minute epic from Finnish doomsters THE WANDERING MIDGET, the split finds two disparate, unique bands offering a glimpse into their dark and mysterious worlds.Formed in 2009, HANDS OF ORLAC has gradually evolved from its early doom forays into a horror soundtrack-infused outfit, heavily inspired by the works of BALLETTO DI BRONZO, GOBLIN, BIGLIETTO PER LINFERNO and ALPHATAURUS. The bands fourofferings on the split were recorded by veteran producer Berno Paulsson at the renowned Berno Studio in Malmo, Sweden. With the mystical vocal and exotic flute work of G. leading the way, HANDS OF ORLAC offer up an invigorating take on occult metal, with both the progressive "Curse Of The Human Skull" and straightforward "From Beyond The Stars" displaying a degree of balance that is emblematic of a band capable of pushing boundaries without falling prey to genre clichs.THE WANDERING MIDGET hail from Lappeenranta, Finland and were formed in 2005. The bands 2008 "The Serpent Coven" and 2012"From The Meadows Of Opium Dreams" LPs were riff-intense bodies of work, channeling the true spirit of doom forerunners BLACKSABBATH and CANDLEMASS. THE WANDERING MIDGETs contribution to the split, "Where We March The Vultures Follow", is their first sonic offering in over five years, and is a true stroke of monolithic doom, laced with anguished, slow-churned melodies and the animated vocals of Samuel Wormius.The split is the first release on Cruz Del Sur Music for HANDS OF ORLAC and THE WANDERING MIDGET, representing the labelscontinued focus on unearthing the undergrounds most challenging bands. The sounds of occult metal and epic doom joined together have never sounded so foreboding.
