Info for Applause Of A Distant Crowd
Copenhagen’s progressive genre-crossing quartet VOLA return with "Applause of a Distant Crowd".
VOLA's previous album "Inmazes" was met with a wave of critical praise; Prog Magazine lauded their “widescreen heavy stadium Prog”, Metal Hammer rejoiced in the “genre-defying, weighty riffs, gloomy, ambient soundscapes and guttural grooves” whilst The Sun exclaimed their “genre-mashing” ability.
On "Applause of a Distant Crowd", VOLA embraced a different approach, the guitars have less gain, the drums sound dirtier and alive and everything feels looser. The contrast between the mellow and heavy is more profound than on any of their previous records. VOLA are ever evolving, always delving and dissecting the recesses of human thought and creating rich and textured soundscapes.

Vola's music exists in a borderline area of rock, that is as high-flying and melodically fulfilling as it is itchy and heavy. The band forms quirky trails of distorted bass and guitars, entangling synth lines and constantly groove-driven drums that play up against wide vocal harmonies and deep-blue-textured electronica.
The Copenhagen-based quartet grew out of a common interest in eclectic, groove-oriented music which draws inspiration ranging from 70's progressive rock to modern day electronica, industrial and extreme metal. Vola features Asger Mygind on vocals and guitar, Nicolai Mogensen on bass, Martin Werner on keyboards and Felix Ewert on drums.
Inmazes is the title of the debut album by Danish experimental rock band VOLA. The album was released digitally worldwide on the 2nd of February 2015. The album features artwork based on a watercolor/acrylic drawing by Danish artist Anders Thrane and sound mastered by Jens Bogren of Fascination Street Studio.
Vola received rave reviews for their 2011 EP 'Monsters'. Ourstage wrote: 'Sometimes [...] a band comes along that's so good it almost doesn't matter just how metal they are.' while a journalist on Rockfreaks had to conclude: 'I'm having a hard time drawing justified parallels to any other band I know. I guess VOLA are just pretty damn special?'.
This album contains no booklet.
