Dimesland Guitarist Passes Away

Drew Cook, the guitarist for Oakland-based Dimesland and Wild Hunt, has tragically passed away in recent days.

Drew is remembered by the Bay Area music scene and thrill-seeking metal explorers worldwide for his unstoppably tight, technical, unique guitar skills, and is cherished by his friends and family as a greatly loving person.

Nolan Cook, the other half of the dual-guitar tandem of Dimseland, has issued the following on the loss of his brother, bandmate and best friend:

"We are saddened to announce the untimely passing of Oakland musician extraordinaire, Drew Cook, of the bands Dimesland and Wild Hunt.

Wild Hunt To Release Debut Full-Length Album

Wild Hunt's debut full-length album, "Before the Plane of Angles," is set for a May 1st release on Kemado Records. The following press release was issued about the album:

"From Oakland, California, Wild Hunt's epic, progressive sound draws influence from black metal, traditional heavy metal, ambient music, and beyond. From triumph to melancholia, Wild Hunt's long, winding songs twist and turn but always push forward.

"Majestic dual-guitar lines race atop forward-charging rhythms, led by the soaring harmonies and blackened screams of singing drummer Harland Burkhart. The band's intense, mystical vibe honors past musical forms while forging ahead in a progressive-minded way. Drummer of Agalloch and Worm Ouroboros, Aesop Dekker, has publicly hailed Wild Hunt, praising the band's 'craft, musicianship, and songwriting.'

"Much as the music evokes the sense of a journey, the lyrics center around altered states of perception and man's ongoing quest toward enlightenment. Before the Plane of Angles is a conceptual record, intended to be experienced in one sitting. With ambient passages linking one song to the next, it plays as one continuous piece of music - an ode to the album format.

"Before the Plane of Angles was recorded and mixed by Laudanum/ex-Asunder bassist Salvador Raya at Earhammer Studios (Saviours, Ghoul). The ambient sections were recorded and mixed by the band - including field recordings captured on location in places like Tennessee Valley Park in Marin County. The album was mastered by Justin Weis at Trakworx (Hammers of Misfortune, Ludicra).

"A remarkable debut album from this Oakland band - more a trip than a collection of songs - Before the Plane of Angles reflects its creators' respect for music of the past and their willingness to push fearlessly into the future."
