Take a look outside your window. We’re living through a particularly bleak paradigm, with ominous political shifts occurring around the globe. It’s time for a rallying war-cry, to tap into the power of our ancestors, to learn the wisdoms taught by history and its recurring patterns. It’s time to acknowledge the power of women, to burn with the fire of a banshee wail, to taste the energy of revolution and feel the inspiration of generations of resistance.
And that’s where ASCEND, the second album by insurrectionary heavy rock trio Vodun, comes in.
Ten slabs of ground-flattening, groove-inflected rock power, driven by the afro-inspired dervish drums of Zel Kaute (interpreting the spirits of Ogoun), the roaring, fierce chromium guitars of Linz Hamilton (The Marassa), and fronted by the fire-breathing howl of frontwoman Chantal Brown (Oya), delivering you the truth of generations with a drive and focus that can’t be matched.
The music of ASCEND is more sophisticated than on Possession, the band’s 2016 debut. The canvas is broader, the details more vivid and varied. Their palette now embraces a healthy dose of extra percussion, saxophone, and vocal arrangements that pair Chantal’s behemoth holler with harmonies, chants and howls, a full-spectrum of sound that suits their polymorphous attack.
Ascend is, unabashedly, revolution music, its ten tracks a hurricane of mystic heaviness, spiritual soul and furious positivity, its colossal riffage & rhythms allied to inspirational lyrics and powerful melodies to deliver food for the soul and fire to inflame uprisings. At heart, it’s an album of musical celebration, and heavy playfulness – lyrically of resistance, and of solidarity. “We can rise above this,” nods Chantal, referencing the dire state of 2018.“And we will rise above this.”
