Approaching the genre with a blend of heavier and lighter styles, which range from technical metal riffs, to spooky mellow passages, to hardcore breakdowns, VODNIK balance
Toronto groove metal four-piece VODNIK will be unleashing their debut music video "Our Dread, Our Joy" in the coming weeks and before they set the world ablaze they are sharing with metal fans a little taste of what's to come in a new teaser that can be viewed at the following link:
“In Czech, Vodnik roughly translates to ‘of water’. I adopted the name for us because it is a widely celebrated mythological creature from my Czech heritage. Vodnik is gruesome, perfect for metal and what we want to do with it.”
“Lakes and rivers are its territory where it awaits to trap the souls of drowning victims. He is similar to the boogieman of the English-speaking world that also scares children. I try to write the lyrics largely from the perspective of the Vodnik creature.”
The band's forthcoming debut single "Our Dread, Our Joy" is off their planned debut EP slated for later release in 2019.
