Vofa is a fascinating ensemble of Icelandic musicians with various backgrounds. Their music is rooted in cold & grim doom soundscapes of mysticism & horror. For the past 15 years all members have contributed to the Icelandic underground scene, across various genres like: black metal, death metal, punk, grindcore, hardcore, electronica, folk, and doom. Vofa, in turn, is an exploration of the bleak side of life. Their music is as mentioned above rooted in cold & grim doom soundscapes of mysticism & horror, fueled by the harsh natural essence of their homeland. Here are two track with very simple but effective names from their recently released selv-titled debut album! I and II,
Vofa delivers the feeling of a Cold Wind To Valhalla with their often eerie music with narrative story telling harsh growls. Fascinating, suggestive and intense vibe of addictive of extraterrestrial music! Valhalla is the hall of the æsene in Norse mythology, and æsene are Norse gods.
The self-titled debut album from Vofa is a three part journey of spirituality, depression, and the ethereal beauty of our meaningless existence. The heavy droning riffs contrast with haunting and somber melodies, interspersed with hard-hitting grooves, all layered with unsettling voices echoing from the abyss. Vofa is a faceless collective, thus they have opted to remain anonymous. Very nice artwork by Nona Limmen. The music from Vofa is probably for fans of Mourning Beloveth, Mournful Congregation, Evoken. Vogfa is translated as far as I can understand, Ghost.
