Default Vodun

A self-described afro-futuristic tribe who conceive of themselves as three central forces rather than individuals, VŌDŪN are Oya (vocals), Ogoun (drums) and Marassa (guitar), and they make a glorious, raucous heavy noise that draws its power from the ideas practised in the West African spiritual religion of Vodun, from where it became known as Voodoo as it grew beyond the African diaspora

In its thundering tribal drums, colossal fuzzed-up bass and planet-sized riffs, Posession touches on feminist themes, the Catholic Church’s crusade against Haitian spiritual practices, the Franco-Dahomean war of 1890 and the quest for total, metaphysical transcendence. The fact that it does so against a backdrop of trailblazing, highly original, fierce and enlightened rock n’ roll simply makes it all the more special.

In short, an amalgamation of Afro, Heavy Metal and Psych with a Soul singer.

Their first full length "Possession" is one of the most unique albums I've heard in years. The vocals are outstanding, the riffs should please any Iommi fan and the drumming is absolutely insane!

Good stuff...I like the soulful vocals to the heavy stoner riffs ! I must hear more from the band. Vocalist Oya has a great set of vocal chords...
Thanks for the introduction !
