Death Doom

Melt Your Brain on the Droning Death Noise of VORARE “Ocean of Misery”

If VORARE was trying to create and all-encompassing sense of existential anxiety and dread when they recorded “Ocean of Misery,” they succeeded. This is music that commands my full attention, sucking me into a vortex of sonic unease that threatens to turn into sheer terror as each soundwave ripples into my ears. This avant garde drone doom/death industrial duo shows no mercy for the listener on this track, instead they’re reaching into the depths of the twisted human mind to pull out our hidden selves. Crushing doesn’t do this song justice; mangled static emanating from the abyss is more like it. “Ocean of Misery” is off their upcoming record Atelier, which comes out on May 24th, plus they have a split with Earthflesh called Rope Tower coming out on May 31st — get them both here. Today we’re stoked to share their video for the song “Ocean of Misery,” prepare yourself.

The entirety of Atelier was crafted over the course of four days, two years ago in May ’22, in an old, ransacked atelier hiding in plain sight in an otherwise burgher-esque surroundings. The duo found themselves digging deep into the most profound pits of human psyche, aided by the constant cacophony of rain, construction work, and to be left unnamed factors. The result is a wall of sound capable of destroying and suffocating everything on its way, bowing to neither its progenitors nor its listeners.
