Vokonis - The Sunken Djinn (CD)
Catalog number: RIPCD064
Vokonis set the doom world on fire last year with their debut LP, The Olde One, which crested most sites Best of Lists, and now their back and making even more noise. Already one of the most anticipated albums of the year, The Sunken Djinn made it's debut at #7 on the Doom Charts, 2 weeks before it's release.
"Coming almost fifteen months after their celebrated debut album – Olde One Ascending. The Sunken Djinn is a better-rounded and doomier affair with the previous albums Stoner sounds giving way to a more psychedelic and sludgier groove. You can still hear that addictive Vokonis groove first heard on their debut album. The album has a more intense heavy metal feel with Vokonis taking influence from classic eighties sounding heavy metal artists at times.
The band becomes permanent doom dwellers with the music nightmarish in scope. Fans of Black Sabbath, High On Fire and Mastodon will find much to admire and riff-worship here.
