mor sommer This powerhouse of spirit and heavy riffs is exactly what I need in this life. Seriously one of the best bands I have ever heard. Their music hit me hard from the very first note and now I'm hooked. This album is even better than their 2016 debut, and that's saying a lot. Favorite track: Started From.

dharmalogos This is the real deal. You've got a prog drummer, a metal guitarist, and a soul/gospel vocalist who make music together that sounds like a cohesive whole rather than genre mashing. Technical musicianship, syncopated grooves, powerhouse Aretha Franklin vocals, uplifting lyrics. This music is heavy, complex, and unpredictable. It's great for headbanging or dancing.

James Campbell The only band that makes me feel alive in this existential hell scape I'm living in... Favorite track: Spirits Past.

about

The second album from London voodoo rockers Vodun.
Ten slabs of ground-flattening, groove-inflected rock power, driven by the afro-inspired dervish drums of Zel Kaute (interpreting the spirits of Ogoun), the roaring, fierce chromium guitars of Linz Hamilton (The Marassa), and fronted by the fire-breathing howl of frontwoman Chantal Brown (Oya), delivering you the truth of generations with a drive and focus that can’t be matched.

The music of ASCEND is more sophisticated than on Possession, the band’s 2016 debut. The canvas is broader, the details more vivid and varied. Their palette now embraces a healthy dose of extra percussion, saxophone, and vocal arrangements that pair Chantal’s behemoth holler with harmonies, chants and howls, a full-spectrum of sound that suits their polymorphous attack.

about

Vodun UK

Amidst the rushing screams of Mother Earth; the pounding drums of Ouidah; the markets of Lomé and the open heart of Erzulie, there exists VODUN

Born of only 3 comes the embodiment of crushing noise intertwined with enrapturing harmonies... heavy, weird, soulful - yes, we are expectant of the abnormal and so should you be.

Come, walk with us… Walk with the VŌDŪN!
