VOTUM yesterday confirmed their appearances at this year’s edition of the Metal Hammer Festival in Poland. They will play alongside Katatonia, Opeth, Riverside and the headlining KoRn (with one band still to be announced). The event will take place on August 27 at Spodek Hall in Katowice, Poland.
Polish prog-metal band VOTUM formed in Warsaw in 2003. The band is preparing to release their second full-length, Metafiction, in the US on August 3 via Armoury Records. At once dark, somber and beautiful, Metafiction was recorded at the famed Izabelin Studio in Poland and is a seven-track concept album that focuses as much on the music as it does the lyrics and visual art surrounding it. VOTUM’s concern is not of the particular style of music they play but rather the atmosphere pouring from within. For fans of Opeth, Porcupine Tree and Anathema.
“…Metafiction is a progressive musical puzzle. A puzzle to a psychotic search. A mindgame; look for the pieces, connect them together and write the ending of the story.” – Power Of Prog Blog
