Vorum – Poisoned Void

From the start i thought it was going to be another regular ass death metal album with bog standard riffs and screams as per the genre. Then the guitar solo in ‘Rabid Blood’ happened and I found myself air guitaring at my desk! This was immediately followed by head banging my way through the rest of the album with great appreciation.

In their own words, “VORUM springs from the poisoned waters around the scattered shores surrounded by the baltic sea. Chained to the depths since its foundation in 2006, the treacherous currents of the deep has drenched desolate banks with black disease.”

So they’re a fast, heavy and aggressive 3 piece band from Finland!

Having done a Split EP along side US band Vasaeleth in 2010, “Poisoned Void” is Vorum’s first full length solo offering… and what an offering it is! Drawing inspiration from the likes of Demigod, Abhorrence and Nihilist in fine fashion.

Highlights for me are ‘Rabid Blood’, ‘Thriving Darkness’ and title track and 7 minute long monster ‘Poisoned Void’.

Its safe to say that Im going to stick this album firmly between Dark Fortress’ “Ylem” and Watain’s “Lawless Darkness” on my shelf of beautifully heavy get shit done albums and I fully expect to see more from them in the future.





Poisoned Void will be out on 25/01/13 on Woodcut Records.
