HANGING GARDEN – Backwoods Sessions – out now
In July 2015 HANGING GARDEN recorded and filmed the live performance for five songs. The 2-day session, called “Backwoods Sessions”, took place in the woods of Pernaja in a location familiar from one of the band’s earlier music videos. One of the key songs in this session was the Jeff Buckley cover “Dream Brother”, which was arranged to portray the current sound of Hanging Garden. This was also the band’s last performance with drummer Antti Ruokola (2010-2015).

HANGING GARDEN are all about atmospheric and heavy music – no matter which musical style is necessary to create impressive contrasts that affect listeners in the innermost. Being around since 2004 and having released two albums for Spikefarm Records – “Inherit The Eden” (2004) and “Teotwawki” (2009) – the Finnish group already introduced their view on depressive and emotional disturbing music that is based on the dualism of beauty and harshness. With LIFEFORCE RECORDS debut “At Every Door” (2013) and follow-up EP “I Was A Soldier” (2013) the band discovered an even more accentuated and distinctive mix of different genres including doom influences, melodic death, post metal and post rock as well as acoustic and folk quotations.
