Oakland Heavy Metal Band Vannon will release their End Times-themed modern rock, doom metal-inspired new album “Desert of Our Dreams” on September 10, 2021, by the use of Big Round Music. Fans of artists ranging from YOB and Mastodon to Gojira and Soundgarden must take into account this release.
Artist Biography: Vannon is a Psych Metal band from Oakland, CA blending dynamic elements of stoner/doom and Viking metal to create high-intensity, raising stories. After forming the band within the wintry weather of 2019, Max Hodes and Sven Pazarek temporarily inspired the native scene with their thunderous live sound. They have proven superb studio manufacturing abilities on their first EP and display an enormous sweep of sounds on their new album “Desert of Our Dreams”. The band is equally inspired through Yob and Bathory as they’re using synthwave, noise track, krautrock, old-school death steel, and Alice Coltrane. Max sings about his present-time belief of a maddening precarity, searching for a collective centre to head beyond the end of the sector. His guitar seems like the sea on the fireplace. Sven creates a world of bass and sweeping synth sounds that bring the listener further into Vannon’s heavy psychedelic aesthetic. The paintings in the studio like Byrne and Eno. Their mind-melting performances are visceral and mad, triumphant but pained, explosive yet centred, and very, very loud. The upcoming complete period, “Desert of our Dreams ” is a psychedelic retelling of the Book of Exodus. The album starts on a mountain of sorrow and travels thru demise, rebirth, and demise again in a sad attempt to ascend Above the Stars. During the recording a terrifying spirit entered the studio with the band, bringing with this holy track visions of mad prophets, looming angels of death, false gods and wandering ecstatic seekers within the promised lands. Recently the band has added the mighty Nick Willbrand (Continuum) on bass, each to extend low-end sonics and sweeping drones, and also because dude just gets it, where so few even suppose to concentrate.
