Two things I immediately like about Domovoyd‘s self-titled album opener, “Domovoyage,” which you can hear below: First, it’s trippy as fuck and then some. Second, even the “shorter version” of the song is 13 minutes long. Hell yes. The Finnish outfit k-i-l-l-e-d it on their 2013 Svart Records debut, Oh Sensibility (review here), and they seem primed to push the ritual even farther out with Domovoyd, which is due out May 8, also on Svart. Expect a layered, effects-driven freakout and don’t be surprised when those expectations are exceeded.
Raw vibe, anything goes, psychedelic fuckall. Hard to beat. PR wire brings news of doom from space:
DOMOVOYD set release date for new SVART album, premiere first track
The young psychonauts of Domovoyd are onto their sixth year of existence in this dimension, and having taken many acid heads by surprise with their Svart debut album, Oh Sensibility (2013), the band are ready to deliver a second transmission from worlds beyond and within. Scheduled to appear on the planet on May 8th, once again via Svart Records, the album is self-titled and it will be available on CD, double-vinyl, and digital.
Domovoyd’s eponymous 60-minute behemoth pays tribute to progressive rock masterpieces of yesteryear in the sense that it is, for lack of a better word, a concept album: storytelling and mythmaking in the works, if you will, but distilled through an overdriven stack of amplifiers. The album’s six tracks deal with inner discovery of the psychedelic kind and, ultimately, with the loss and destruction of all conceptions of self and the world; old ego is a too-much thing, as Charlie Manson once said. For those who are looking for a quick fix while waiting for the album to hit, Domovoyd have prepared a shorter version of the album’s opening track “Domovoyage” HERE. Ease on out of your mind with Domovoyd! Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
