Voyage Of Slaves
Voyage of Slaves was formed by guitarist/vocalist Dean Dokken, bassist John Fronza, guitarist Johnathan Hernandez and drummer Rob Waller in Paducah, Kentucky in 2008. The four piece invaded the local scene for the following year and released their first self titled demo in 2009. Shortly after, Voyage of Slaves went through a number of member changes and Rob and Johnathan dropped. This caused the band to go into hiatus until December of 2010 when dummer Jon Grace and guitarist/vocalist Dave Palenske joined. For the rest of 2011 the band began writing an extensive catalog of new material and played across the east coast of the US opening for heavy-weights such as Obituary, Deicide, Revocation, Nasty Savage, and Beast in the Field. Fast forward to 2012 the band is fresh off of their first EP, "Victorious" and ready to put out their sophomore release entitled "Forged Beneath The Frost".
Eternium started out in the thoughts of 16-year old, Markov Soroka. With the self-financed "Aura Titian" demo recorded and heard by many ears, Markov was ready to recruit live and collaborative members. Whilst writing the entire full length by himself, Markov needed to find players for future collaboration and live shows.
After various trials, relocation, Eternium found a steady line up:
Markov Soroka - Guitars/Vocals
Brent Dossett - Bass/Vocals
Gabe Price - Guitars/Vocals
Chad Griffin - Keyboards/Vocals
Cole Sandel - Drums/Orchestral Percussion
Eternium is Symphonic Black/Death metal that is strongly influenced by Melodic Black and Death metal, and orchestral compositions. If compared to artists, Eternium can be compared to Emperor, Sacramentum, Dissection, Amon Amarth, and Sacrilege.
The music itself is very story-driven. All of the lyrics and compositions are a sort of "soundtrack" to a story of Markov's, regarding Auras, Creation, Death, and the general story of Titian, Amethyst, and Eternium, the solar giant of creation.
The full length is currently in pre-production, and little details have been disclosed thus far. We are hoping to release it sometime in early 2013, but as we all know, things sometimes may not go as according to plan or how we want. We are doing our best, and we are solely self-financed.
We are looking for labels in the future, but of course, we will submit physical material when we are ready. Thanks for all the support and attention from all the loyal fans.
"Truculent Void is a melodic death metal band of 5 seasoned musicians. We enjoy being on stage. Commanding respect with brutal riffs and technical solos with high energy stage presents."
