Boomkat product review for:

band of holy joy - How To Kill A Butterfly

Northern survivors Band of Holy Joy have been around since 1984, and at this point that's quite a stretch for any act. They return with 'How To Kill A Butterfly', an album which has been suggested as their finest to date, and I couldn't possibly disagree. Having lived and worked through so many different genre shifts, it should come as no surprise that the band's sound is pretty widespread, but their dark, spine-chilling take on folk feels genuine and original. With a cabaret attitude and a distinct occult flavor, Band of Holy Joy should drag plenty of new listeners into the fold with this latest slew of eccentricities, and after twenty seven years that's some achievement.
