Heavy modern rockers Vonavibe (Athens, Greece) just revealed a new self-titled music video and single entitled “Vonvaibe“. This is the second music video & single taken from their upcoming LP album Bleed to Life which will be released on May 26, 2023 via Eclipse Records. The video was directed by Peggy Psarrou. The album was produced by Dyon and mastered by John Christodoulatos at Sweetspot Productions. Stream the single on Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Tidal, Deezer, and Amazon Music and watch the music video via YouTube below:
“Given the significance of the track, we needed to make the video equally special and showcase what Vonavibe is all about” says lead vocalist and guitarist Dyon. “For this reason we opened up our vault and dug up some of the best footage from the band’s entire lifespan, whether it was pro-shot or simply taken with a mobile phone. As a result, this music video is the accumulation of the band’s course over the last 5 years. We wanted bits and pieces of live performances as well as time we spent in the studio performing, rehearsing or during a sound check. The video is something more than just a timeline projection, however, it is a reminder that whatever curve balls life throws at us, we can always bounce back. How we started playing in small clubs, making leaps to bigger venues and eventually landing gigs in some huge festivals supporting acts such as Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons or Monster Magnet. We almost lost it all after my motorcycle accident and had to take a painful three and half years before we were able to set foot on stage again. Vonavibe is an animated portrait of the band, and also the meaning behind the band’s name. …every fright that may lie, never lost is Vonavibe. Vonavibe, a sense of hope.”
Vonavibe’s new album is entitled Bleed To Life. The band’s third release contains ten amazing songs and is scheduled for release on May 26, 2023. Bleed to Life is an album that redefines the sound barrier at least in terms of raw power. We often informally refer to that massive rhythm guitar, bass, and percussion vibe as a “Wall of Sound,” and the first bands that come to mind are Black Sabbath and Metallica. More veritably, the “Wall of Sound” was introduced in the 1960s by record producer Phil Spector, who invented a dense orchestral studio aesthetic made of layering, echo, spill, and mono. Currently, Vonavibe have sonically restructured this idea, and Bleed to Life does not simply give us a “Wall.” It builds us a grand fortress. Besides the addictive hooks, intricate dynamics, clever drum pattering, and diverse vocals, the guitar interplay on Bleed to Life, is exceptional. Part of this is a result of the technical production, writing, and studio performances, but more viscerally, it feels to the listener like becoming a tidal wave, a volcano, a hurricane, pick your simile. Of course, rhythm chords and repetitive riffing are often used as mere background to the verses, choruses, and platform solos, but Vonavibe create a world where the rhythm guitar is unique like a “vocalist,” with the lead guitar becoming an exotic superhero.
