With Dust Mountain’s extraordinary international live debut at Roadburn Redux in mind, we’re beyond excited to premiere “Village On Fire,” the first single taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album, ‘Hymns For Wilderness,’ which will be released through Svart Records on Oct. 8.

Emerging from the darkened Wastement in Tampere, Finland, Dust Mountain was founded in 2016 by siblings Toni Hietamäki (Oranssi Pazuzu, Waste of Space Orchestra) and Henna Hietamäki (Cats of Transnistria), accompanied by a stunning band: drummer Jukka Rämänen (Hexvessel, Dark Buddha Rising) bassist Riku Pirttiniemi (Death Hawks) and guitarist/backing vocalist Pauliina Lindell (Vuono).

Equally inspired by ’60s and ’70s acts such as Fairport Convention, Pentangle, Linda Perhacs and Coven, the mandolin-driven “Village On Fire” celebrates the connection between nature and ancient rituals, moving between fictional fantasies and true, close-to-heart beliefs, making Dust Mountain a joyous, occult-soaked, psychedelic folk rock affair.
