Vessels of Wrath
Since their inception, Vessels Of Wrath have strived to bring the world a different sort of aural reality, blending metal, classical baroque influences and "world-like" sounds with the newer elements of techno and industrial. The occasional sprinkling of death and black metal makes an appearance every now and again, as well as opera, goth, punk, thrash and hardcore. It all blends seamlessly to create a musical experience like no other; music so diverse it cannot be easily thrown into an existing genre, though the elements are familiar enough not to come off convoluted or artsy. 2007 saw the release of their long-awaited debut album; ''Tis Now Struck Twelve: The Shape of Goth to Come', a culmination from years of forming their trademark of Over Dramaticized Opera Metal and brought their performances to a must see over the top theatrical experience.
Now, at the dawn of a new decade, V.O.W. brings it's 19th century suit wearing and flapper dancing show to a new level of pompousness with it's second offering; 'And We Shall Take Up Serpents', a creepy and unsettling 7-track narrative coming from the darkest and most cynically comedic places of the soul.
With a wealth of song and a vaudevillian show that makes you forget rock n roll didn't exist "back in the day", V.O.W. brings another world to you. One filled with temptation, cackling blasphemy, and with the grandeur and darkness of the olde... And you won't want to leave.
