Voodoo metallers VODUN unveil their second album ASCEND.
Take a look outside your window. We’re living through a particularly bleak paradigm, with ominous political shifts occurring around the globe. It’s time for a rallying war-cry, to tap into the power of our ancestors, to learn the wisdoms taught by history and its recurring patterns. It’s time to acknowledge the power of women, to burn with the fire of a banshee wail, to taste the energy of revolution and feel the inspiration of generations of resistance.
And that’s where ASCEND, the second album by insurrectionary heavy rock trio Vodun, comes in.
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.
Ascend will be unleashed on September 7th on New Heavy Sounds, and will be available as a deluxe limited edition vinyl package.
First pressings housed in a gatefold sleeve, on two colour blue and white vinyl, as well as a black vinyl version. Both options coming with a free CD of the album and free download.
