Void Tripper Release New Song - BURNING WOODS - From Their Upcoming New Album - DOPEFIEND

Brazilian stoner/doom band Void Tripper released the single “Burning Woods” as the first advance of the band's first studio album entitled “Dopefiend”, with release planned for the first semester. “Dopefiend” is the result of the band's preparation to be their best release with five tracks of a massive, dull and solid sound that promises to please the most demanding listeners in the strands. 

Recorded mostly at home ( with drums recorded at the Casa de Ensaio studio) and mixed / mastered at Cosmos Art Studios the album features the production of Rafaum Costa (musician and producer from Rio Grande do Norte). 

“Dopefiend” is, in the words of the band itself, “a journey without a return to psychedelic and dirty insanity, with strong influences from Sludge, Stoner and Doom and presenting the problems of today's society with acid lyrics”. 

The band criticizes the posture of the Bolsonaro government taking as an example their negligent attitudes during the 2019-Amazon forest fires, until the most recent days with their constant denial about the pandemic and corruption scandals, drawing parallels with authoritarian rulers that emerged throughout of the history of humanity. In the words of the band, “while Bolsonaro plays at being president, Brazil burns”.


In mid-2016 four friends who had known each other since school had a passion
in common: Black Sabbath. Taking reference from bands like Acid Bath, Church of Misery,
Melvins, Electric Wizard and Sleep this passion resulted in Void Tripper. The band borrows from the sound of Stoner Rock and the weight of Doom Metal, mixed with psychedelia and dirty riffs. 

There’s two vocalists and guitarists (Mário Fonteles and Anastácio Júnior alternating between aggressiveness andmelody with drummer Gabriel Mota exploding in heavy attacks on the drums accompanied by the mind-boggling bass by Jonatas Monte, in a sound that at the same time refers to the sound classic of the 70s and exploring the aggressiveness of Sludge Metal.


You can view their thrilling new song Burning Woods which has me excited to hear the whole album. This is 8 minutes of Heavy Doomed Out Stoner Metal if you dig bands such as SLEEP and MONOLORD. Turn the volume up for this one.
