“Around Your Grave I’ll Light a Ring of Fire” is a brutal sonic dance ritual fuelled by grief and memory and rage and flames. Banishment, purification, agony, ecstasy. We mix ritual singing and spoken word with elements of techno, metal, and industrial. And we go hard, making this by far our most “danceable” song yet, which is very exciting for us—for what is a ritual without dance? Without movement? We’re curious to explore this connection between the raw emotions of ritual ambiance with the propulsive force of danceable beats.

For those who have walked through personal underworlds towards the black mountain and the unknown beyond, this song is made in solidarity. For anyone who enjoys it, we hope it helps you move/dance out whatever you might need to.


I will bury you in clay
I will bury you so deep in clay
That not even the worms will touch you
You will linger there for many years
Petrifying beneath the weight of the earth, awake
You will know how it feels to suffocate from beneath
To be trapped with festering thoughts that were fed to you
And around your grave I’ll light a ring of fire
To purify the shades from the broken corners of my soul
You could be mine but I do not want you
I never wanted you
And I will rid my mind of you
I will forget you where you lie and all of your names
The pain is part of me now
But when I leave this world I’ll take your mark with me
So it can touch nobody else

Blood and Dust is a collaboration of two dark queerdos inspired by horror cinema and occult myth. Part horror drone, part spookfolk, part post-rock, they blend synth and cello into nightmarish auditory rituals. It is the music you hear while wandering a cursed manor at night, calling you to the basement where dreadful things happen. Bring your salt, and stay safe while communing with the dead. ... more
