Vofa is an ensemble of Icelandic musicians with various backgrounds. For the past 15 years all members have contributed to the Icelandic underground scene, across various genres like: black metal, death metal, punk, grindcore, hardcore, electronica, folk, and doom. Vofa, in turn, is an exploration of the bleak side of life. Their music is rooted in cold & grim doom soundscapes of mysticism & horror, fuelled by the harsh natural essence of their homeland.
The self titled debut album from Vofa is a three part journey of spirituality, depression, and the ethereal beauty of our meaningless existence. The heavy droning riffs contrast with haunting and sombre melodies, interspersed with hard-hitting grooves, all layered with unsettling voices echoing from the abyss. Vofa is a faceless collective, thus they have opted to remain anonymous. Artwork by Nona Limmen. For fans of Mourning Beloveth, Mournful Congregation, Evoken.
Masterpiece! Absolutely briliant! While the funeral doom scene is full of copycat bands, Slow's V-Oceans is a fresh ray of hope. Creative songwriting and complete harmony between orchestration, tempo and the superb vocals. Very pleasant surprise from Slow pedram83
