After releasing couple EPs and touring in support of 'A Walk in Hell' throughout 2014 and beyond, the band decided to finally make a full length album and work with Christian Machado of ill Nino as the producer of this new masterpiece. After months of pre-production, VTT entered SoundWars Studios in NJ to record 'The Sun Shining Cold', which took around a year to finish including recording, mixing, mastering and post production...
The Sun Shining Cold promises to be VOODOO TERROR TRIBE‘s most sonically advanced offering yet! Producer Christian Machado recognized the raw talent within the band and knew they had something special to offer to the rock scene. “This album is possibly one of the best metal albums I’ve ever been a part of,” states Machado. “You don’t always get to work with such talented musicians who just so happen to be mature and dedicated to bringing something fresh to the evolution of the genre. I comfortably refer to them as “haunted metal” but in all honesty they are a new breed of metal yet to be heard under this style and context. In my heart of hearts, I truly believe they are here to contribute an impressive approach and styling to the evolution of metal.”
'The album has come out equally schizophrenic and coherent; as much gothic as power metal or industrial, as much melancholic as confrontational. This is an album full of surprises, with heavy guitars and crushing drums, but yet melodic and catchy tunes with layers of haunted, mysterious, electronic and industrial sounds, with mainly dark, twisted concepts, where we’re at a post-apocalyptic, decaying life, with still hopes to prevail and for the sun to shine hot again…Those who know us will be surprised, and those who don’t; ready or not, you’re GOING TO LISTEN TO THIS!'
In anticipation of the album’s release, the band is pleased to reveal the music video for their new single “City of Sixes”, which was premiered on Loudwire: loudwire.com/new-music-showcase-exclusive-premieres-from-knee-high-fox-the-reaktion-voodoo-terror-tribe-zodiac/
