While the project has never compromised its original vision, it is fair to say Brighter Death Now has evolved into one of the few bands upholding the black flag of industrial music. True to his roots – Roger Karmanik is still living in accordance with the only law he can follow. The NO rule. While people should be seriously more worried about the grumpy old nihilist. Nothing left to lose or to gain. His bare and tarnished feet continues the one-man funeral procession through the cold and desolate Nordic landscape. His back against the world. Let Everything Rot!
Of the Wand and the Moon is the neofolk/experimental project of Danish musician Kim Larsen and various guest contributors. Larsen was originally a member of the gothic/doom metal band Saturnus, but left due to personal disputes. Following this, he began the neofolk project :Of the Wand and the Moon:, as he was a longtime fan of the genre. Larsen lists among his musical influences the neofolk artists Death in June, Blood Axis, Current 93, Sol Invictus, Fire and Ice, Der Blutharsch, and Nature and Organisation. He credits Thunder Perfect Mind by Current 93 with making him want to be a neofolk artist, and calls Death in June's Rose Clouds of Holocaust the albums that "means the most" to him. Thematically, he is influenced by runes, Aleister Crowley, Norse mythology, esoterica, and Paganism. He once described his music as "loner folk".
