Every day is a new start to explore, to learn and to experience more. Either it is in love, live or music. Every day is full of excitement and enjoyment. Votum is another surprising example of this. â:Ktonik:â grabbed me, moved me and touched me from the very first listening after the download (sorry promoâs nowadays only go through the web!).
To learn more of Votum, because I wasnât familiar with the band at all and didnât heard of them before. Votum started in 2002 as a heavy metal band and has transferred and grown towards a progressive style of music throughout the years. Over these years â:Ktonik:â is now the fourth release of the band and a very exciting and interesting one. Since I am completely blank and new with the bandâs music, it is impossible to determine, compare and describe any differences, progression or similarities with their previous outputs.
To explore more of Votumâs influence and musical directions: Main influence and without a doubt recognisable is Anathema during their latest 3 or 4 releases. Dreamlike, progressive, emotional and floating soundscapes drifting you towards and beyond the borders of progressive rock. Added to this the complexity and ingenious way of song writing that Nevermore showed at their last records. And finally Cynic to add symphonic and voice complex ideas and influences. All this voting for a very interesting and intriguing piece of complex progressive rock.
To experience more I advise anyone interested in this musical genre and/or mentioned influences to start a new day with listening, learning and enjoying â:Ktonik:â. Your daily live will be enriched moreâŠ
