Vokonis - Swedish Progressive Sludge Collective Announce New EP "Exist Within Light"

Majestic Mountain Records is proud to announce the signing of Swedish prog-sludge collective Vokonis for the release of their yet-untitled fifth album planned for early next year.

“We're so happy to be part of Majestic Mountain Records.” Says the band.

"We have partnered with Majestic Mountain Records for this EP and our upcoming album which will be released in 2024, more information on that to come and are very excited for our collaboration with MMR as they share our ambition for opulence, quality and unwavering support of the queerness. The new album has already been recorded, mixed and mastered and we can't wait for what the future holds with them.”

The album will be preceded by a three-track EP titled “Exist Within Light”, which is scheduled to be released on October 27th and sees the Swedes further expanding their prog-inspired landscapes initially explored on their 2019’s breakthrough album “Grasping Time”. Pre-orders are now available at this location.

The opening song “Houndstooth” is now playing at The Obelisk, who commented about the EP "Those who heard the then-trio/now-four-piece’s last album, 2019’s Odyssey (review here) will likely thrill at the Mastodonnery in the midsection of “Revengeful” before the sprint starts anew, or the harsher vocals in the back half of “Houndstooth” — the bite, presumably — and with the breadth of “Exist Within Light” itself, Vokonis assure the creative pursuit that’s led them from their demo days in the middle of the last decade to the realized and expansive unit they are continues unabated."
