Voyag3r’s debut album, Doom Fortress, is now being distributed in the UK by Death Waltz Records. It’s available as a black vinyl LP with a 12″ x 12″ art print and digital download. Available from tomorrow (26th October 2014).
Doom Fortress is the debut album from Detroit’s Voyag3r (pronounced Voyager Three). Voyag3r are a synth based instrumental rock band that draws inspiration from sci-fi, horror, action soundtrack music from the 70’s & 80’s. Voyag3r have set out to create dynamic, epic, moody and atmospheric sounds intended to inspire. This experimental rock sound is like a movie-less score or the soundtrack to a far away mysterious journey. Voyag3r forge their sound with a multitude of analog synthesizers, acoustic drums and electric guitar.
Doom Fortress was recorded using vintage analogue synths, electric guitar through vintage tube amplification and maple shell acoustic drums. All music was recorded to 2″ analogue tape (MCI JH-24 2″ Analog 24-Track w/ALIII remote) through various vintage pre-amps and a 1977 Custom Harrison 3232 console for maximum authenticity and spirit in capturing this classic sound.
Oh, and they were a Band of the Day back in 2013.
