VAISSEAU Debut album ‘Horrors Waiting In Line’
Out March 13th on Totem Cat Records
VAISSEAU craft their very own sonic way out, both distraught and intense. The French duo confidently matches doom and krautrock, laying their haunting synths at the center of the action. Tangerine Dream outrageously flirting with Black Sabbath and satisfying any fiend of dark, proto-prog soundscapes. VAISSEAU don’t need guitars, only slow, obsessing loops that will take your mind to a chaotic sci-fi universe. The unwavering drums-machine duo has created a genre of its own, that we will most aptly name “synth doom”.
VAISSEAU’s debut album ‘Horrors Waiting In Line’ is set for released on March 17th via Totem Cat Records (Dopethrone, Sons Of Otis, Fistula). The artwork by Jason Barnett (Fistula, Power Trip, Ghostmane) depicts the daily struggles one learns to apprehend and overcome Another subtle reference to escapism that floats atop the whole album, and reaches peaks thanks to its majestic pyramide, a symbolic vessel that guides lost souls towards the light.
