Independent rock band Voltagehawk released its debut album, Electric Thunder, this month.

The band released the album Jan. 21 through The Label Group/INgrooves. In celebration of the record’s release, the band premiered the video for the record’s latest single, ‘The Cosmic Hangman.’ The video features the band in what looks like a unique recording studio setting, complete with lights and mirrors that make it look like a club.

The song’s musical arrangement is a driving, up-tempo composition. Its combination of stoner and neo-classic rock influences makes it unique in its own right. Comparisons can be made just as much to works from the likes of Clutch and Queens of the Stone Age as to South of Eden throughout the song. The balance in that duality ensures audiences’ engagement and entertainment.

Front man Dan Fenton talked about the commentary in the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.

“On 10/17/17 I was dead. I had drank myself into oblivion,” he said. “Years of depression, abuse, and confusion as a child had finally caught up with me. As I lay unconscious, I was at perfect peace; no pain, no ringing in my ears, just floating for 9 minutes as the paramedics brought me back. I heard a voice inside my mind ask if I wanted to stay in the cosmic womb or if I would stop drinking. Those were my only options. I chose to give up the bottle, accept help for the first time in my life, and enter a treatment program. It changed everything.

“My moment of peace in the cosmic womb let me know that there was something after this life, but not what they had taught me as a child. The reception of my new found life was mixed. As I went on a journey of amends, I was embraced by some and rejected by others. I was told that without religion I couldn’t possibly have changed. They were wrong, I had changed.”

Added Fenton, “The rule of the papacy has long cast judgment on those seeking change outside the constructs of religion or faith. This song is an anthem for the undamned, unfallen, and unredeemed. Rebirth is not a battle between heaven and hell, but a battle between mind and body.”

‘The Cosmic Hangman’ is just one of the singles produced from Voltagehawk’s new album. The record has also produced the single, ‘Recrimination.‘

Voltagehawk Premieres New Single, ‘Recrimination,’ Companion Video

Independent rock band Voltagehawk offered audiences a new preview of its new album last month.

The band premiered its new single, ‘Recrimination‘ and its companion video Oct. 27 through Ghost Cult magazine. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming album, Electric Thunder, which is scheduled for release Jan. 21 through The Label Group/INgrooves.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Recrimination’ is a heavy, driving composition. The fuzz effect that is incorporated into the song gives it something of a stoner rock edge alongside its modern rock sound. The juxtaposition and combination of those two styles and sounds here makes the arrangement engaging and entertaining in its own right.

The song’s lyrical theme is a social statement of sorts, according to a prepared statement from the band. The statement also addresses the song’s video, which was directed by Jarrad James.

“Cause and effect, effect and cause,” the statement reads. “Crime itself is often a byproduct of the environment created for the repeat offender by the systems of law. In this downbeat driven, fuzzed out dystopian Robin Hood tale, we follow a criminal locked in battle against recidivism. In a landscape of survival, it asks you what you would be willing to do. It asks you to take a walk in another man’s shoes, for when you point one finger, three point back at you.”

Voltagehawk Gets Existential In New Single, Video

Independent rock band premiered its new single, ‘Neon‘ and its companion video this month.

The band premiered the pairing June 9. The song, which comes approximately five months after the band’s then latest single, ‘Straight Razor,’ is featured in the band’s concept album, Electric Thunder. The album center’s on a young woman’s journey through space and time. During the course of her journey, the woman finds out she plays a pivotal role in the future of mankind.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Neon’ is an interesting composition that blends the heavily fuzzed sounds of the stoner rock realm with an equally evident industrial metal sound to create a unique whole that is certain to keep listeners engaged and entertained. The lyrical concept that accompanies that musical content meanwhile gets somewhat existential.

It comes across as a sort of allegory about the contradictory nature of the human condition. This happens through the examination of the normalization of sex in society, and how that contradicts with how we as humans are far less accepting of ourselves. That is this critic’s own interpretation and should not be taken as gospel.

The band explained the song’s lyrical concept in a prepared statement.

“‘Neon’ is a vision of a dystopian skid row, a glimpse into the future through blurred white lines on neon-lit streets,” the statement reads. “The truth is we all have sex for money, sex for love, and sex to pass the time. In some way or another, we’re just like the woman in the song screaming in a final moment of frustration “Pay me my money and go!”, all the while fed up with whatever part of ourselves we’ve sold to get by in this life.”

The video that is used alongside the new single is meant to help translate the seeming message. Information provided about the video states: “Meet Kenzeon, a transdimensional sex worker on the Cosmic Highway just outside ‘The Land of No One.’ A vision of a dystopian skid row, she offers a glimpse into the future through blurred white lines on neon-lit streets, ripping through the fabric of space-time to be paid what she is owed. The weary version of this astral being reminds us that we have all had sex for money, sex for love, and sex to pass the time, fed up with whatever part of ourselves we’ve had to sell in order to survive the worlds we were born into.”
