...In April 2011, Voodoo Terror Tribe once again entered the studio to start recording the new EP entitled “Stands to Reason”, but this time with a little bit different, maybe not afraid to say some industrial approach by adding some keyboards, sound effects and some synth on the new songs. The charismatic guitar demon and true force behind the band, Emir explains Voodoo Terror Tribe’s newest approach and sound; “We know the scene, and the scene knows us, but we’re coming at this in full force in a new way with a new sound.” "It feels like the culmination of what we've been doing for a long time as Voodoo Terror Tribe: power grooves, crushing guitars, catchy, but dark melodies, but taken to a new level," bassist Primer adds, "it's a natural progression from Symptoms of Sin, but different than anything on that record.” Voodoo Terror Tribe’s melodic-while-still-heavy, radio-ready-but-still-metal sound rides of the shoulders of the vocalist Gil Pz’s definition of what the band should be: “Voodoo Terror Tribe doesn’t bolster a false pretense of originality,” he says. “We worry about the songs being good first; originality comes second.”
Hailing from the working class Garden State of New Jersey – and armed with an equally blue-collar attitude of doing it on their own – and dedication to a melodically heavy brand of music, Voodoo Terror Tribe has high hopes for the near future. "We poured everything that we had and everything that we have become into our new sound and songs,” drummer T-Bone continues. “It was meticulous, grueling, stressful and insightful, but we found a new sound. It's been quite a long road, and now we wanna prove to the fans that it's all been worth it."
With the recently-released new EP “Stands to Reason”, that’s exactly what VTT has set out to do, including an upcoming time on that road and in venues, including some exciting things behind the scenes that will soon come to fruition. This is a torturous adventure into the unknown which you will be incredibly impressed with and it's all for your pleasure.
If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of this release. Now we have become Death, the destroyer of worlds…!
