VODUN: Terrorizer premieres new video for « Loa’s Kingdom »; UK tour kicks off this week.
London afro-psych metal trio VODUN have teamed up with Terrorizer to host the premiere of their bewitching new video for « Loa’s Kingdom », directed by Juliette de Momigny. This is the second excerpt off the band’s debut album « Possession », due out in 2015.
« Loa’s Kingdom is about the desire to transcend into the realm of the Gods – your highest self. A kingdom only fit for supreme beings, who must first pay penance to Papa Legba, as all the spirits do. He is the first and last, the beginning and end. He is the one who will let you into their world, and the one to let you out, so be generous with your offerings« , comments the band on their new single. « Loa’s Kingdom » is the second excerpt off VODUN‘s forthcoming debut album, which was set to release in 2015.
Rising from the ashes of London’s female-fronted metal band Invasion, VODUN blends a unique concoction of heavy metal and psychedelism, while embracing afro-caribbean culture in the fullest possible way ever. Successfully reborn as voodoo Loa spirits Oya, Ogoun and Ghede, VODUN unleashed their first EP « Eat Up The Sun » in 2013, a perfect introduction to the trio’s singular and thrilling blend of shredding guitars, blazing rhythms and soulful vocals. After completing a short UK tour, the band quickly unveiled a vibrant song entitled « Possession » (released in 2014 on the « New Heavy Sounds Vol. 3 » compilation), thus paving the way for their debut full-length, recorded at Bear Bites Horse Studio and due out later in 2015.
