Following the release of the first installment of their debut three-part EP, ‘The Sky Burial EPs’ in February 2013, Voros immediately set about establishing themselves on the local Adelaide scene. After just a few months and a handful of shows, the band’s crushing songs and high energy live performances had built them a decent following and helped them to get publicity on several websites, including Metal Underground, Sludge Factory and Metal As Fvck.
The release of the second Sky Burial EP brought the group further attention: Blunt magazine, one of Australia’s leading alternative music publications, made Voros their ‘Fresh Fruit’ of the month in their October addition and the track ‘Pollaxe’ from the EP reached No. 4 on Triple J’s national Unearthed metal charts.
‘The Sky Burial EPs: Part III’ was released on November 6 and once again brought Voros international press. Moreover, it helped the group to land a support slot on Canadian death metal heavyweights Kataklysm’s December 2013, ‘Northern Hyperblasting Over Australia’ tour with Gotsu-Totsu-Kotsu.
Voros launched the physical edition of the ‘Sky Burial EPs’, featuring all six tracks from parts I, II and III of the EP, in January 2014. Off the back of this release they have shared the stage with such notable bands as 8 Foot Sativa (NZ), Frankenbok, Voyager, King Parrot, Lynchmada, Caligula’s Horse, Lord and Vanishing Point to name a few. The band are making their first trip interstate in November with a show in Brisbane, with shows in Melbourne and Sydney to follow.
Recording is underway for a single to be released with a music video in late November. The track will also be featured on the bands’ debut album, with recording to commence in early 2015.
‘The Sky Burial EPs’ were recorded by Andy Kite at Against The Grain Studios and mixed and mastered by Darren Jenkins (Mortal Sin, Daysend, DepriVation).
