ZAUM – BrooklynVegan Premieres New Track From Psychedelic Doom Alchemists

Ambient doom alchemists ZAUM will unleash their anticipated Divination full-length next month via Listenable Records.
 
A direct continuance of the ever-evolving lore and world in which ZAUM has exposed, conceptually, the album unpacks a transmundane darkness from ancient Burma – touching on conflict, theism, and some esoteric events which play a key role in the developing canon of ZAUM. Audibly, the album portrays a dense and vivid dreamstate, supplanting the listener into an overseer’s perspective of these aforementioned esoteric depths, reexperienced with a celestial clarity. The soundscapes within encapsulate an unveiled mysticism harnessed to unpack the fluidity of consciousness at the crux of the human condition.
 
In advance of the release of Divination, BrooklynVegan is pleased to unveil the hypnotic sounds of “Pantheon,” issuing, “Canada’s ZAUM make Eastern-tinged psychedelic doom that’s earned them plenty of Om comparisons… The new album has just three lengthy tracks, and we’re premiering the shortest one, ‘Pantheon,’ which clocks in at nine minutes. The Om influence is strong on this one too, but ZAUM make it their own, and anyone whose taste leans on the trippy side should check this out.”
 
Adds the band, “‘Pantheon’ touches on the reality of a lost religion from a period in time – one which may have been closer to the truth than anyone had been aware.”
 
Lose yourself in the sounds of “Pantheon” at BrooklynVegan at THIS LOCATION.
 
Divination will be released on April 26th in Europe followed by a North American release date of May 10th. For preorders visit the Listenable shop at THIS LOCATION.

ZAUM is a passage toward the dark realizations of the old world; a monolithic, doomy mantra-based meditative experience forged by bass and drums interwoven with sitar, woodwind, string, and synth textures. Based in New Brunswick, Canada, observers experience a tranquil resonance whereby the astral and physical planes can coexist and be understood from a natural perspective.
 
While ZAUM‘s meditative “mantra doom” sound stays quite true to what people have experienced to date, their sound and presentation certainly has progressed further into new territory on Divination with the inclusion of recorded instrumentation such as jaw harp, digideroo, singing saw, dilruba, saz, brass bells, brass bowl, and finger cymbals. In addition, their live experience now features a monumental change with the recruitment of Egyptian-Canadian evil queen Nawal Doucette to ZAUM, performing her mesmerizing dark dance rituals entrancing those who observe.
 
ZAUM:
Kyle Alexander Mcdonald – vocals, bass, textures
Christopher Lewis – drums, percussion
Nawal Doucette – visual performance art, ambiance
