Voodus are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in this zine and plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Into the Wild" which will be released in November by Shadow.
Thunder and wind sounds start off the album along with some keyboards a few seconds later before going into a heavier direction while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style along with the faster sections of the songs also bringing in a great amount of blast beats.
Vocals are mostly grim black metal screams while the tremolo picking gives the songs more of a raw feeling along with the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody as well as the tracks also adding in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
Whispered vocals can also be heard on some of the tracks while a great portion of the songs are very long and epic in length along with a brief use of acoustic guitars as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses they also bring in a brief instrumental before returning back to a heavier direction on the two remaining tracks.
On this recording Voodus plays more of a melodic style of occult black metal in the Swedish style, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism and Occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Voodus and if you are a fan of occult black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Golden" "Communion Amid The Graves" and "The Terrian Of Moloch". 8 out of 10.
