The Swedish black metal band Voodus came to unholy life under the name Jormundgang more than a decade-and-a-half ago. Following the release of several demos and an album, the band adopted Voodus as their new name, and since then have released a pair of EPs, and now a new album fittingly named Into the Wild. This new full-length will be released by Shadow Records on November 26th, and it’s our pleasure to share with you today one of the new album tracks, also fittingly named: “The Golden“.
The dynamism of the track is one of its strengths. It sears like a firebrand yet is also reflective. It mixes savagery with moodiness and majesty. And in its penetrating melodies, it becomes gloriously incandescent.
