AMPLIFEST 2014: WOVENHAND
We all listen to music and all of us are driven to catalogue it, to label it. It sure is moving when you just know there’s no way to describe it by comparison. There’s no way one can talk about Wovenhand by comparing them to anything else but other David Eugene Edwards’s efforts. And that’s how the singer-songwriter as been working since he formed the truly influential act 16 Horsepower — like a one of a kind type of creation, resembling none but the unique human nature itself. Wovenhand’s music comes from the heights of Colorado, from the ritualistic out-of-body experiences of Native Americans and from the one of kind relationship with God maintained by David. He founds Him in our eyes, in our voices; he looks for him in Joy Division as much as in Black Sabbath and incarnates his vision of godly matter in the disturbingly beautiful songs of Wovenhand. Their latest record “Refractory Obdurate” has been release via Deathwish Inc., so you know it is twice as good. Can’t wait to have them preach at Amplifest.
