« Sonic Dislocation is one hell of a track, a true journey through a unique and deeply fleshed out soundscape. Like many bands from the eras of music which this track (and band) is referring to, like Hawkwind or Magma, the key is in the vision, the depth of the story being told, even through these instrumental means. For that, the composition and execution have to be flawless, taking in and fleshing out all the little details therein. VAISSEAU have both, making this track a true joy to take in. » describe Heavy Blog Is Heavy.

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.
