Post Re: Bleak chicks

Vouna is a funeral doom act from Olympia, Washington, consisting of lone member Yianna Bekris. Her labor of loneliness, this self-titled debut was created with the assistance of Wolves in the Throne Room’s Weaver brothers, being recorded at their studio, Owl Lodge, and the artwork created in collaboration with Nathan Weaver. Its premise lies in the perspective of “becoming the last person on earth” with influences in Finnish funeral doom, Greek folk music, and Eastern European black metal. All of which could easily go either way—tacky or intriguing.

I found it to be enjoyable. Reminds me a bit of Skumring, mixed with Agalloch. Not sure how I feel about the synths, but the vocals sound very good and I enjoy the dire guitar melodies.

(Dolch) is definitely worth a mention. Blackened drone metal/post-punk/ethereal wave/shoegaze/whatever. Sounds like a mix of Urfaust and The Angelic Process with eerie clean female vocals.

Yeah Dolch is a good shoegazy Black-ish doom-ish project. The debut is much more interesting than the follow-up, imo.

Now, I noticed denovali released a new album by BLACKFILM, this great dark and heavy electro project. This one features a female voice that is not always leading the number, but, still, it's feamale-fronted, no question about this.

This, as far as three tracks are a good indication of what the whole album will be about.
