Culminated from various wastelands in the New York City region, a mysterious and atrocious occult metal entity has infiltrated humanity. TELOCH VOVIN, a cult of harbingers with fully malicious and maniacal intent, has unleashed its introductory recording in the form of “I”.
A collection of off-kilter hymns summoned in an organic and spontaneous environment, “I” rampages with nearly thirty-five minutes of low-fi, dispirited blackened filth as simultaneously bizarre and unhinged as it is triumphantly iniquitous. TELOCH VOVIN’s jagged, high-speed buzzsaw riffing and vomitous vocals clash with doom-laden slow-motion dirges, the tone giving one the feeling these warriors’ amps are literally about to explode in an electrical inferno, the anomalous ring of bells chiming through the melee. With influences of Gorgorth, Funeral Mist, Black Sabbath, Celtic Frost and Bathor coalescing into something devotees of Furze, Peste Noire, Striborg, Leviathan and the like will flock to, this sect freakishly travels its own path. “I” has been made available in a limited run of 333 copies, hand-numbered and baptized in sacrificial blood.

Following the band’s initial live ritual in December, TELOCH VOVIN will bring more chaos to stages across the NYC region over the coming months, the first of which will take place this Friday, June 21st at Brooklyn watering hole Saint Vitus Bar. The show will be followed by a listening party for “I”at Duff’s Brooklyn which will also serve as a fundraiser for this year’s NYDM (New York Death Militia) Annual festival on Long Island August 15th through 18th, where TELOCH VOVIN will share the stage with Evoken, Blood Feast, Prime Evil, Mausoleum, Deceased, Black Anvil, Embalmer and tons more over the four-day massacre. The last day of August will see TELOCH VOVIN sharing the Saint Vitus Bar stage once again, this time alongside Black Witchery, Negative Plane and others to be announced in the coming days.
