Hadewych is an ultra grotesque band founded by Peter Johan Nijland, which has jumped in and out of existence since its formation in 2004. The sound of Hadewych, once wandering in its own wayward realm between atmospheric black metal drones, ritual and neofolk, has picked up a more bodily charateristic in recent years and traded in its initial generic band setup for an arrangement in which often unconventional percussion instruments are dominant and give the band a more monolithic approach.
