Dark sound effects start off the album along with some bass guitars a few seconds alter which are actually the lead instruments on the recording and after awhile they take the music into a heavy sludge direction while also bringing in melodies at times which also gives the music more of a prog metal feeling.
Most of the songs are very long and epic in length and when vocals are added into the music they are a mixture of screams and growls and at times clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a great amount of drones and as the album progresses trumpets can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a brief use of spoken word parts.
vod takes the heaviness of doom and sludge and mixes it in with the melody of prog and post metal as well as adding in drones, experimental and avant garde elements to create a sound of their own, the production sound s very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics and song titles are written in code.
In my opinion vod are a very great sounding mixture of drone, doom metal, post, sludge, and prog metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "itji" "unnauk" and "Anirniit". 8 out of 10.
