Battleground Records has added the Southern California-based sludge act WOVOKA to its roster;
rounding out an already diverse list of family members rooted in the desert with heads and hearts full of heavy riffs. Wovoka’s debut album, Saros, will be available April 14th on CD/DD.
Watch the chilling teaser video for Wovoka’s debut album, Saros, at THIS LOCATION.
Formed circa January 2013 among the monolithic concrete sprawl of the greater Los Angeles area, the post-metal quartet Wovoka have been developing a sound that speaks to the ear with a wide range of robust dynamics, fragile melodies, and measured surges of psychedelic color. The music is conceptual and delves deep into the many contrasting elements of human thought and belief, but it is not a sermon for or against anything, rather it is a study of what makes us tick and develop the ideas that we do. As to how Wovoka themselves perceive this great mystery, there are fragments and clues to be found within the songs, lyrics, and artwork of their upcoming debut album. The panoramic scope of the story is too big to be written in stone or sky, so it must be absorbed and imprinted upon the mind’s eye of each listener. Wovoka only hopes to open the door and to unveil those possibilities and points of view beyond the narrow sight of thinking oneself to be the center of the universe.
