One of the biggest moments for SVDDEN DEATH, and the dubstep community as a whole, the producer is ready to unveil the biggest moment so far in his career: the next step in the VOYD project. For years now, SVDDEN DEATH has been fine-tuning the VOYD project, a place for his minimal, hard-hitting dubstep which is accompanied by an impressive audiovisual live experience. Now, he finally unveils his long-awaited album ‘VOYD VOL. II‘, a 13-track followup to 2018’s ‘VOYD’. Experimental in its sound that is uniquely his, it holds nothing back in its sound design and aesthetic. Simply put, it isn’t for the faint of heart. Growing into more than just the music, it has seen him put on live shows, the likes of which has seen him levitate before the stage as the crowd is hit with massive watts of pure bass. Now, ‘’VOYD VOL. II’’ showcases just how much the alias has grown over the years.
“I’m super excited to finally put my first album out and I appreciate the patience from all of my fans. It’s extremely hard for me to ever put anything out and call it “done” when I’m constantly improving and making my tracks better and better for each show that I play. I finally got to a point where I felt I was happy with ‘VOYD II’; after hundreds of iterations of each song, selecting the right ones, and curating the proper flow that I thought represented VOYD best, I knew it was time to let the public hear it. I wanted this album to be more than just a dubstep album. It needed to tell a story and flow well… and I think that it does that. With 13 tracks and 5 skits that help break up the album, I think it’s something that I can call complete and is very special to me. I hope you guys enjoy it or I’m gonna lose my f***ing mind! I have so much more in store for this project – the music is just one piece of a very large puzzle that is VOYD.” says the producer about the album.
Not your typical dubstep album, ‘’VOYD VOL. II’’ tells a dark and haunting story; each track is a different chapter, and we’re exploring them all.
Maze of Punishment
Sharing the same name with the game that SVDDEN DEATH set up to promote the album, ‘Maze of Punishment’ is the first track that truly lets fans know what they’re in for on this haunting journey. Featuring menacing vocals that go against a backdrop of melodies that sound like they are being played on an old organ, this is where we know we’re in for a treat. After the monologue which includes spooky vocals like “we are born to die”, the buildup does an expert job of building up the tension before the earth-shattering drop comes in to annihilate everything. Towards the end of this track, fans will notice the nod to ‘Behemoth’, one of his most popular tracks to date and a staple in his discography.
Continuing the momentum and flowing perfectly, this ‘Dream Sequence’ is more like a nightmare sequence, in the most menacing and haunting way possible (which, if you’re SVDDEN DEATH, is a good thing). The first drop in this track ebbs and flows with intensity, and perfectly showcases the intricacy of the ‘VOYD’ sound. The second drop is something that also doesn’t disappoint, taking the elements of the first and tweaking them into something new. If that wasn’t enough, there’s even an electrifying third drop in this tune.
