Comments the band, “Our residence in the often bleak Pacific Northwest helped shape the sound that reflects the band’s name, a Latin word meaning ‘sorrowful.’ Voir Dire leads listeners down a path which forces one to address their own inner turmoil.”
In celebration of its release, today Decibel Magazine offers a stream of MAESTUS’ Voir Dire in its entirety issuing, “Spacious and suffocating at the same time, this Eugene-based blackened doom trio deliver a smackdown so complete you’d swear they were from one of the Scandinavian countries.”
Succumb to Voir Dire, now playing at THIS LOCATION.
Released via a joint venture between Domestic Genocide Records and Glossolalia Records, Voir Dire follows the release of the band’s 2013-issued Scarlet Lakes EP, which A Kvlt Of Personality commended for capturing, “nature in all his horrific beauty…. uncomfortable …bipolar and dissonant, but often beautiful.”
