Synth-driven Funeral Doom and Wolves In The Throne Room protegees Vouna are streaming their entire new album before you can buy it. Releasing this Friday through Artemisia Records, the label forged by Aaron and Nathan Weaver of WITTR. Jam out to the awesomeness below. Vouna is on the road this week on a tour of the Pacific Northwest.
Vouna’s self-titled debut was composed and all instruments performed by front-person Yianna Bekris, formerly of Vradiazei, Eigenlicht, and Sadhaka. The album was recorded entirely at Wolves In The Throne Room’s studio, Owl Lodge, which is located at the edge of an ancient forest in Olympia, Washington. Nathan Weaver of WITTR collaborated with Yianna to create the artwork, which mixes archaic Hellenic mythic images with Cascadian atmospheres.
