Vouna - Atropos

Now this is a crusher. Vouna are a new art-doom band emerging from the ever fertile musical breeding ground that is Olympia, Washington. Their second full length, Atropos is coming out on the one and only Profound Lore. It's a massive step forward for the project and hints at so much more to come from a band who walk in the footsteps of Subrosa, My Dying Bride and other grandiose acts who have impressed so many listeners over the years. This is simply the next step on that, seemingly destined to grace the stage at Roadburn and so many other chic underground festivals. 

Atropos impresses because of the breadth of the sound and the elegant poetry of the execution. Vouna's behind the scenes mastermind, Yianna Bekris has progressed in leaps and bounds since her debut, and it's a delight to lose yourself in what's been done here. The violin work in particular is entrancing. Tracks like 'Vanish' can't help but to impress and leave you begging for more. There are just so many gorgeous layers to what's going on that to lose yourself in them is a true delight. Vouna understands the tropes of the genre on a profound and exciting level. It's far too much fun to really immmerse yourself in them and experience all their glory.

Still one gets the sense that Atropos is not the peak of Bekris's powers. This is just another step towards a truly monumental offering. As is though - Atropos is a doom metal stunner. It's multi layered and showcases a musician whose abilities dance all around. From blackened screams to transcendent choruses, she has crafted something larger than life that speaks to the human condition. It's this sort of doomed beauty that leaves listeners in awe and coming back for more. There is a great talent here and this is just part of her path to triumph.

  1. Good day friends. The truth is that GREAT MOTHER IS REAL AND UNIQUELY POWERFUL. Contact the Great Mother today and she will help you. when my husband left me for another woman, i thought that was the end but i contacted many spell casters but there was no positive responses and everything seemed not to be working and i was losing my mind until my cousin told me about the GREAT MOTHER who also helped her to bring back her man and also helped her to cure her herpes disease. I gave it a try and i contacted the Great Mother on her Website and i saw various testimonies about her on her good works how she has helped a lot of people. I explained my problems to her. she laughed and told me that, everything will be okay again and that she will help me bring back my man in 3 days time. I actually thought that it was a joke but since i had no other options, i gave it a try and i did what she instructed me do and to my greatest surprise, my man came back to me begging in 3 days time just as she told me. Contact the Great Mother now on her website:   and you can also reach her on her email:  or you can equally contact her on her whatsapp number: +17025514367
