Spicy chicken metal...The next big thing.

Spicy chicken metal band from Melbourne is how I, Valiance describe themselves...I describe them as frenzied, yet symphonic; heavenly yet hellish; to put it simply, take everything you love about any hardcore death metal you've ever heard and it might come close to the cacophonous crazy good sound these guys produce. Progressive & innovative, they are so far ahead of the pack in this genre, if you haven't heard them yet, you must've been hiding under a rock and must quickly remedy this! For band members Gabe Houben, Matias Morales, Krys Smith, David Freeland and last but not least, the mighty Vrillon, 2015 has been a massive year with their EP 'Reject of Humanity' being released in January, they have toured their home Australia relentlessly as well as being picked up on the bill for Melbourne's leg of the 'Soundwave' festival with some of the best in the business. They don't look like slowing down anytime soon either, with management confirming a "heavy touring schedule" for the foreseeable future. 

All throughout the finely woven tapestry of an EP the effects are out of this world, there are so many dimensions to the sound. Thrashing riffs really stand out from the harrowing vocals and enhance the full blown ferocity that assaults your ears in the most intriguing way. Tracked by the band themselves, they had a little help with mixing and mastering from Buster Olestrum. The track 'Thrown to Belial' has a little bit of everything, massive diversity is abundant here & I can't go past it as my fave from the album. Everything is woven together so intricately each song is a masterpiece of it's own, anyone can appreciate how much work and attention to detail went into the production. Do not underestimate my words, this band is going to be huge, so have a listen, spread the word and wait for your friends to start thanking you for introducing you to the next big thing!

Filling the Girl Punk Voiid

Walking into the Foundry early, I was pretty keen on the night's line-up. There was a crowd starting to mill around the stage and a bit of a buzz to be honest, tonight’s headliners are the irrepressible Bleeding Knees Club with The Pinheadz & Voiid supporting…this was not the first I’d heard of the ostentatious girl group.  In fact I was looking forward to seeing some girlshreik, it had been a while since I’d heard an all girl punk band that impressed me to be honest.

The girls were all so comfortable in their skin on stage, an electric presence that flaunted true punk ego. They sauntered onto stage, and with an almighty bass line they launched straight into it as did the crowd. Voiid certainly have built a local following and everyone was writhing & cascading all over the joint with enthusiasm. Obvious influences came shining through, I decided I needed to have a little chat with the girls to spread the word on the hot asfuck sounds hitting my earholes…
So you got together…

Journey through Desire Path.

Talking with Yeo, I felt like I was chatting to a friend, he is humble and honest. We spoke about the themes intertwined in 'Desire Path' and how each collaboration came about.
Your last album was really playful both in the music and the lyrics.  Listening to your new album ‘Desire Path’, I felt like a it’s journey through different relationships. 
Yeah, I think even if the lyrics get really literal, music to me is based on emotion and emotions are kind of nothing without a relationship to give it context I feel.
Well when you think about, it relationships rule our lives, whether it be a friendship, family or a work colleague they are always an influence; but I feel quite a few of these tracks are about love relationships?
There’s a few on this album, and I haven’t done this for a while. The last album had a couple, but I feel like I got more honest on this one. 
I agree, you have a great way with words and that draws me in to your music. I take an expression of human emotions and …
