Murder ballads, occult folk, melancholic duets, dark roots and black humour. The Gallows Dance brings old folk songs back to life, and keeps alive the tradition of story-telling with tales about death and sorrow, with an oddly cheerful twist.
The gloomy atmosphere is combined with rattling chains, twangy banjo, screaming guitar, harmonica, and songs that are guaranteed to make your feet stomp the floor. Dark female vocals, varying from angelic to demonic, are occasionally accompanied by deep, resonant male voice.
In addition to frequent gigs throughout southern Finland, the band has also performed in Germany, and shared the stage with Jayke Orvis. The debut EP released in early 2019 will be followed up with a full length album in 2021.
The Gallows Dance are:
Neme – vocals, chain
Carlos – guitar, vocals, harmonica and bass
Riina – guitar, banjo
Antti – percussions
The Gallows Dance live performance works well from smaller coffee shops to bigger bar venues. As long as the audience has room to move, since the shows will make them loose the noose and put on their dancing shoes.
The Gallows Dance was founded in 2017 in Kouvola, Finland.
