New VOLA album and video << ALL NEWS 

Copenhagen’s progressive genre-crossing quartet VOLA return with their new album ‘Applause of a Distant Crowd’, which will be released on October 12, 2018 via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group.

VOLA's previous album 'Inmazes' was met with a wave of critical praise; Prog Magazine lauded their “widescreen heavy stadium Prog”, Metal Hammer rejoiced in the “genre-defying, weighty riffs, gloomy, ambient soundscapes and guttural grooves” whilst The Sun exclaimed their “genre-mashing” ability.

On 'Applause of a Distant Crowd', VOLA embraced a different approach, the guitars have less gain, the drums sound dirtier and alive and everything feels looser. The contrast between the mellow and heavy is more profound than on any of their previous records. VOLA are ever evolving, always delving and dissecting the recesses of human thought and creating rich and textured soundscapes.

Scroll down to pre-order the album, and watch the video for the song "Smartfriend" (which has one of the most insanely heavy riffs ever, by the way)
