Formed in late 2020, Edinburgh based husband-and-wife duo Hand of Kalliach blend Gaelic and Celtic overtones from Scottish folk music with a raw melodic death metal foundation to create a unique, highly charged and atmospheric sound. Their debut EP was written on the Isle of Islay on the west coast of Scotland, combining aggressive riffs and guttural vocals with higher melodies and haunting song inspired by the grim mythology and history of the Hebridean Isles. Amidst a slew of critical acclaim scoring an average of 82% from reviewers for their diverse and original sound following the December 2020 launch of their self-produced EP, 'Shade Beyond', Hand of Kalliach joined Trepanation Recordings and began writing their their debut full-length album, 'Samhainn', which is due to release on the 22nd October 2021. They are currently being played on regular rotation on a broad number of radio stations globally and are featured in a wide range of webzines and magazines as a new force to watch for. Hand of Kalliach is John on vocals, guitars and drums, and Sophie on vocals and bass.
