Artwork by Adam Burke (Imperialist)

We’re off to a great start in 2022 with a series of highly acclaimed releases of NecrophagousAbyssus and now Vorga coming out (even though the latter will be out this Friday!). Many of them are already hailing their full length as an early contender of the year’s best. Decibel Magazine gave the honour of premiering this stunning band’s album in its entirety HERE. Excerpt –

For fans of – DissectionNecrophobicImperialistMare CognitumUnanimatedSacramentumImmortalGorgorothAshen Horde 

Following a stunning debut EP in ‘Radiant Gloom’ which landed them a label deal, German black metal band Vorga return with an absolutely scintillating full length that expands upon the music on their debut and takes it to new heights. The sound is more powerful and streamlined than ever before, while remaining intense and sufficiently scathing but not so much so as to blur out the gleaming melodies that add a dimension to the band’s atmospheric and otherworldly music. Similar to the sci-fi themed black metal label mates ImperialistVorga seem influenced by Dissection but do so much more and sonically are operating almost as an atmospheric black metal band. It’s easy to get lost in the intense and engaging soundscapes Vorga create, making the listener mentally traverse endless galaxies and remain enraptured by it all, as they weave together compelling riff after riff, ensuring that no time is wasted during the extraterrestrial journey. This is one of the best and most emphatic expressions of this style, leaving no stone unturned in ensuring a fulfilling, edge-of-the-seat experience that’s both refreshing and unforgettable.
