Hand of Kalliach

Hailing from Edinburgh, Scotland, husband-and-wife two piece Hand of Kalliach arose in December 2020 with the launch of their debut EP, Shade Beyond.


Their atmospheric Celtic metal sound is defined by distilled Scottish folk and Gaelic overtones, blended with a melodic death metal foundation. Their music was picked up very quickly even prior to release by radio stations and playlists, notably featuring as January 2021's Band Of The Month on The Midnight Hour show on Metal Meyhem Radio in the UK.


Whilst influenced by folk music, Hand of Kalliach creates minimal use of traditional instruments, instead lifting rhythms, time signatures and patterns from Folk music and adapts them for distorted guitars.


Their debut EP released in December 2020 has received positive critical acclaim with an average of 82% from reviewers. Their first single, Cinders, was released in March 2021 and reached #1 on the 3-day SubmitHub Hot or Not Charts for Hard Rock and Metal.
