Singapore Guide | Music – In Each Hand A Cutlass


In Each Hand A Cutlass

Genre: Progressive/Post rock

In Each Hand A Cutlass are an instrumental act comprising of some well known musicians in the Singapore music scene. This band of sonic pirates blends progressive rock, ambient, post rock and metal elements, casting all music boundaries aside, to create epic sprawling yearning songs that alternate between lifting your spirit and kicking your butt.

The band released their debut full length album, “A Universe Made Of Strings” independently on 24 June 2011. The album was produced by notable producer (and former guitarist) Roland Lim and mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (of Opeth / Soilwork / James LaBrie fame) at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. The album was released in conjunction with their album launch show entitled “The Amaranthine Voyage” at the Esplanade Theatres on the Bay, where they played a triumphant and high-octane set to a sold-out capacity crowd of 250 at the Recital Studio.

In Each Hand A Cutlass is not just a band with a fancy name. It is a statement of intent.


Why we love In Each Hand A Cutlass: We’ve got  “The Escape” on repeat! The track escalates dramatically, seemingly like the climax of an action movie. In fact, all the tracks in their album “A Universe Made of Strings” give the imagery of an awesome sci-fi movie!
