Cut Hands is William Bennett’s solo project, Bennet might be better known for being the leader and founder of Whitehose.
This is Cut Hands’ third album to date: the acclaimed Afro Noise
introduced the project in 2011, and 2012’s Black Mamba expanded its
2013 saw the release of the similarly fiery ‘Madwoman’ and ‘Damballah 58′ 12″s.
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.
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.
This is the luxurious double vinyl version.
