TELOCH VOVIN by Mousie Dixon

Long Island/New York City-based TELOCH VOVIN is a conceptual work expressing the worship and ritual workings with the Forces ov Khaos, Entropy, and Death. TELOCH VOVIN is Enochian: Teloch translates as “Death” and Vovin translates as “Dragon” and is a reference to Samael “The Dragon ov Death” known in his fiery, destructive aspect as Satan.

TELOCH VOVIN was formed by Grigori in the early 2010s, its early lineup having self-released five titles while sharing the stage with Black Witchery, Negative Plane, Grave Gnosis, Kult Ov Azazl, Mortician, Shining, Black Anvil, Behexen, and Hobb’s Angel Or Death, amongst others, building a rabid fan base.

Reforged within the fiery depths, with several lineup changes and additions, TELOCH VOVIN returned in 2020, thriving through the pandemic, performing successful live streams with Blood Feast, Sickbay, and Malignancy, while releasing a series of self-produced tracks via Bandcamp. The Elohim Acherim material for their contributions to The Iron Age Of Kali Yuga showcases the band combining black metal with elements of traditional, death, and doom metal, as well as classical and ambient/electronic influences, intertwined with occult practices that are the backdrop of TELOCH VOVIN, delivering a listening experience that is raw and violent while simultaneously captivating and hypnotic.

VISERION by Rebecca Paige

Based out of Queens, New York City, VISERION takes raw black metal and metamorphoses these elements with a chaotic fury of extreme influences. Death, grindcore, and progressive dynamics bleed through their caustic compositions entwining a tortuous aura across the music. They are unafraid to descend into the blackened depths and showcase the horrors within.

VISERION emerged in 2019, taking their name from the Game Of Thrones undead ice dragon. This extreme metal act made an impact on the scene with their ruthless sound, notably having performed at the legendary Saint Vitus Bar and more. Drawing influences from Darkthrone, Watain, Agalloch, Harakiri For The Sky, among others, the ensemble crafts a distinctive cross-genre twist.

January of 2020 saw the unveiling of the quartet’s savage debut, the Death Dealer EP, followed swiftly by the acclaimed full-length Natural Selection in 2021. Feeding on the dark outpourings from the void below, VISERION delivers banshee shrieks and demonic gutturals against a nightmarish backdrop. Cleverly conveying the darkness from varying perspectives, the group reveal monstrous realms with dissonant clashes. Cutting through with a sharp edge, raging percussion and frantic guitars power through at a blistering pace. Exploring a different route, VISERION also ventures into eerie atmospheres and manifest bleak soundscapes to conjure up a place of vast nothingness.

VISERION has taken great steps so early in their career and are forging the path for the future. With recent lineup changes marking a new chapter, the band are presents Embrace The Void, their contributions to The Iron Age Of Kali Yuga.
