"Dune Messiah is a neofolk project started by Magnus Westergaard (guitarist of the Copenhagen band, The Woken Trees) in Fall 2014. The name “Dune Messiah” was adopted from the science fiction novel about a desolate planet consisting entirely of sand. Further inspired by early Leonard Cohen, country post punk (such as The Gun Club and Rowland S. Howard) and neofolk, Dune Messiah’s sound resonates with the same minimalistic, naked and rough aesthetics of the planet."
