New album “Hymns For Wilderness” out on the 8th of October!
Dust Mountain was founded in 2016 by siblings Toni Hietamaki (Oranssi Pazuzu, Waste of Space Orchestra) and Henna Hietamaki (Cats of Transnistria, Henna & Houreet), accompanied by an exceptional band: drummer Jukka Ramanen (Hexvessel, Dark Buddha Rising) bassist Riku Pirttiniemi (Death Hawks) and guitarist/backing vocalist Pauliina Lindell (Vuono). Having brewed their musical magic potions for an eternity, Dust Mountain are now finally ready to share the fruits of their joined forces with the world, resulting in their debut album “Hymns For Wilderness”.
In April 2021 Dust Mountain performed their international live debut at the legendary Roadburn Festival, Redux edition as part of the Svart Sessions, and instantly captivated audiences around the globe with their shimmering, otherworldly harmonies. Inspired by 1960’s and 1970’s acts such as Fairport Convention, Pentangle, Jefferson Airplane, Coven and Linda Perhacs, with a soft touch of doom riffs and distortions, Dust Mountain’s joyous pagan gospel seeks pieces of a world hidden but not lost. Their stories celebrate the connection to nature and ancient rituals, moving between fictional fantasies and true, close-to-heart beliefs, making “Hymns For Nature” a startling and outstanding debut record. The mandolin riff driven “Village On Fire” is a powerful theme for burning down unjust kingdoms, so kick back and let Dust Mountain blow their magic breath of fiery air through your mind now!
