VOKONIS – ‘Grasping Time’   Leave a comment

Swedish prog metallers VOKONIS have just commenced a brief European tour, supporting Skraeckoedlan, including March and May dates. The tour is being promoted by Blackbird Artists and the band are introducing new material to the shows’ audiences. The video for ‘Grasping Time’ is available to watch on YouTube. The album is to follow later this year, through The Sign Records.

Grasping Time – Classic stoner sound introing. Upbeat, rhythmic drumming, whilst utilising well, the usual down tuned riffs associated with stoner metal. The immediacy hits you instantly, through the signature mark of a band well practised at this genre, who know their stuff. It’ll strike a note with any stoner fans into more modern interpretations. Catchy, with breathing space in which to absorb it. The passion’s visually blatant facially, as well as musically. Quite rightly, the background comes 2nd to the sound and the environmental neutrality fits with the general style of the music. A very hooky number, in which it’s easy to get engrossed. Always melodic and synchronised. The chemistry shines out. Wonderfully accessible. Faultless.

10/10 **********

For fans of Final Coil, Maelstrom, Baleful Creed, AIC, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots.
