Alter Festival



One Leg One Eye is the project of Ian Lynch (founding member of Irish group Lankum) that explores submerged leylines of music and song, integrating the raw aesthetics of black metal, noise and drone with classical Irish folk instrumentation invoke a sense of history and myth.

Lynch’s debut album …And Take The Black Worm With Me (released on Nyahh Records in 2022) is a slow burning suite of five expansive soundscapes that has found its audience largely by word of mouth. Partly recorded in an abandoned Dublin factory where his father worked when he was a child, Lynch’s harrowing vocals are underpinned by vast pillars of uileann pipe drones, overlaid with effects and field recordings to conjure up a sound that is at once dark, mysterious and ultimately transcendental.
