Hot off the heels of their critically acclaimed full-length album Bleed to Life, alternative metal rockers Vonavibe just revealed a new music video for their epic rock/metal ballad “Hold On”. This is the fourth music video taken from their new full-length album Bleed to Life which was released on May 26, 2023 via Eclipse Records. The video was directed by John Margetousakis. The album was produced by Dyon and mastered by John Christodoulatos at Sweetspot Productions. Download or listen to the album on Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Tidal, Deezer, and Amazon Music, and watch the music video via YouTube below:
“Hold On is a song about a love between two people that haven’t met yet” says lead vocalist and guitarist Dyon. “We all walk alone in an endless sea of people, through a reality on repeat hoping that someday we will meet a person that will end this repetition. And when we find that person we hope that the repeating reality has not altered the nature of being true. Life can be cruel and unforgiving and sometimes it is quite easy to forget who we really are and what we really need in order to be happy. So easy, that happiness can hit us between the eyes and not even feel a thing. The two dancers are portraying the tale of a couple. They meet, and come closer and closer. Until they are one, feeling what each other feels, sustaining through blows until one day they realize that it was all just a dream, only to wake up in a black and white reality.”
The new album by Vonavibe is entitled Bleed To Life. The band’s third release contains ten amazing songs and it was released worldwide 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.
