REVIEWS.

Doomed & Stoned review, written by Billy Goate.

"If you do find yourself investing 50 minutes in this one, you just might agree that what we have on our hands is a new classic for our time. Even if you don’t get as excited as I did on the initial run through, I’m positive you will be rewarded by repeated listens."

The Obelisk review, written by JJ Koczan

"Through all of this, Vokonis reinforces their argument of what “heavy,” as a sonic concept, is all about, and they bring a sense of freshness and purity of intent to back them up that makes it difficult to find a counterpoint. Maybe it is time everybody just riffed out."

Outlaws Of The Sun review, written by Niels Fuzz

"I’m floored, and it’s hard to stay objective when listening to someone honing the greats in such a cool and comprehensive way. Vokonis excel in what they do and could prove to be the torch-bearers confirming that worshipping the riff and paying homage to past masters never grow old or out of relevance. It is with peace of mind that I can greet King Vokonis and welcome him as the new heir to the stoner doom throne, where he surely will sit alongside the other greats in the metal realm on judgement day at the dusk of 2016. Stellar job guys!"

Stoner Hive review, written by JK

"A power trio in every sense of that word. Powerful. Heavy. Doom. Stoner. Metal. All of it applies to a maximum and all of them fall short in telling the real story of Vokonis. For that you will have to experience the full force of the six amazing tracks on their debut effort called Olde One Ascending. They dipped deep into the pool of Iommi and drank heavily of everything Sabbath and Sleep while clashing their cups which are filled to the brim with majestic riffs and exalted repetition with fellow countrymen Monolord. 4/5"

Heavy Planet review, by Pete

"The six songs on offer here fly by in an instant, but the whole record leaves you with your fists clenched, and a feeling that what you’ve just listened to was just about as heavy as it gets (and just in case you didn’t realise the name of this blog, that’s how we like things around here!). Olde One Ascending is an excellent heavy record and if your speakers can take it, get a hold of a copy now!"

Slavestate Magazine review, written by Magnus Tannergren

"Helt klart en platta som kvalificerar sig in på årets topp tio."

Doomspeakers review, written by Will

"Olde One Ascending makes great use of macabre Lovecraftian imagery to create ritual and mystery. Lovecraft has become a bit of a go-to for doom metal these days, and what sets the band apart is their willingness to occasionally break this deadly-serious atmosphere and just play some bad-ass stoner jams. Their marriage of doom and space/stoner make their music broadly appealing, and the band has a dark, doomy future ahead of them."

Desert Psychlist review, written by FDJ

"There is no hiding from the fact that Vokonis owe a huge debt to the monolithic grooves of both Sabbath and Sleep, taking the dark riff heavy desert/doom of the former and mixing it with the more traditional hard rock/metal of the latter, but they twist and weave these elements into a sonic tapestry that is completely and wholly their own."

Getmetal.com review, written by Graneklev

"Det är klart att andra band tidigare har försökt sig på att ge sig på grunderna med ett eget tänk men det är långt ifrån alla som lyckas. Vill man rota bland rötterna i metal eller hårdrock så når man i slutändan till ovannämnda Black Sabbath, så det är inget enkelt man ger sig in på. Men i min mening gör man det mer bravur och detta är ett band som jag tänker följa noggrant framöver."

4/5

Daredevil Records review, written by JB

"VOKONIS entstand aus der Asche von dem im Stoner Rock Bereich relativ gut bekannten Creedsmen Arise. Nun also der Neustart mit viel Wucht und musikalischer Klasse. Das Debüt Album glänzt gleichmal mit einem unglaublich gutem Artwork. Sehr detailverliebt das Ganze! Die Musik hat mehr alte Black Sabbath, Sleep und langsame Mastodon Einflüsse als viele andere aktuelle Stoner Rock Bands und besitzt unheimlich viel Energie und Kraft.

Musik: 8/10 Sound: 8/10"

Track Name: Olde One
He will rise, you will fall
Olde One rising, stand your ground
Desert dweller, evil actions
Olde One rising, Rise for them

Olde One

Dead Sun

Olde One

In our Astral mind

In this Cave, ashes rise
Bound by blood, foul taint
Carve the heart, poisoned well
Olde One rising, Rise for them

Olde One

In the sky, lies and rage, in the sky fire in face.
In this cave, blood is falling
In this cave, blood is calling
With our chanting, we are calling
With our chanting, calling for you
Olde One follows, into this cave, Olde One follows into this grave

(Solo)

Olde One follows, into this cave, Olde One follows into this grave
Track Name: The Serpent's Alive
Helpless, constellations
Serpents, infesting your mind
Reapers, flaying the masses
Preachers, Preying on the pure

The Serpent's Alive

We will never die

The Serpent's Alive

We will never die

Searching, for the answer
Anxious, We are failing
Summon, Serpent’s presence
Falling, in a shrouded mist

The Serpent's Alive

Valley, of death and pest
Sirens, charming nest
Restless, bloody ritual
Vortex, vortex of the flesh

The Serpent's Alive, We will never die, The Serpent's Alive, ALIVE
Track Name: Acid Pilgrim
Kneel for him, the Olde one's arriving
Pray for him, the Olde one's ascending
Prepare the feast, tell his story
Acid Pilgrim, fight for glory

Acid Pilgrim, Ride for Orion

Acid Pilgrim, Fight into Oblivion

Acid Pilgrim, Stalk the Horizons

Acid Pilgrim, Come Home

Raise your fists, desert nomad
Hear our chanter, provide for the ascension
Kill your enemy, give us redemption
Acid Pilgrim, fight for glory

Acid Pilgrim, Ride for Orion

Acid Pilgrim, Fight into Oblivion

Acid Pilgrim, Stalk the Horizons

Acid Pilgrim, Come Home

(Solo)

Acid Pilgrim, Come Home
Track Name: Shroomblade
Come together, for the ritual
Acid sky, find the blade

Shroomblade

From the grave

Shroomblade

From the grave

Our people, forged in darkness
Swallows fire, darkest void

Shroomblade

From the grave

Shroomblade

From the grave

(Solo)

This red forest, found by menace
Holy grove, Spores galore.

Shroomblade

From the grave

Shroomblade

Fall for your king
Fear his searing wrath
Feel him gazing
Piercing fazing

Die for your king
Holy knight arriving
Desecration of your mind
Standing on Holy ground

King Vokonis Plague

King Vokonis Plague

King Vokonis Plague

King Vokonis Plague

Clad in iron
Blackened bed of darkened prey
Passing on, through the gate
Standing on holy ground.

King Vokonis Plague

Haunting you
In your tomb

Darkest pit
Grasping your
Broken mind

Hazmat, End the world

(Bridge)

Tainted spectre, Risen orb
Flashing lights, Claws in eyes
Wings of darkness, in the sky,
Ashen rider, Your task is done.

Hazmat, Drain the blood for new ascensions

Hazmat, End the world
