Hamburg-based Progressive Post Rock trio Vandemonian have just revealed a music video for a new track off their debut album “Xenophilia”, issued on February 20, 2021. Watch the video below:
Recorded and produced on a DIY-approach by guitarist and vocalist Nick Braren between late 2018 and early 2020, “Xenophilia” developed gradually over those two years with the trio constantly experimenting and maturing their ideas between studio sessions. The end result is an elegant and compelling album that sees Vandemonian fusing the very best elements of Prog Rock and Post-Rock. Atmospheric elements of Post Rock are met with dissonant guitar tones, driving bass and unconventional drumming.

“Fundamentally, the founding fathers of U.S. intelligence were liars. The better you lied and the more you betrayed, the more likely you would be promoted. These people attracted and promoted each other. Outside of their duplicity, the only thing they had in common was a desire for absolute power. I did things that, in looking back on my life, I regret. But I was part of it and loved being in it …. Allen Dulles, Richard Helms, Carmel Offie, and Frank Wisner were the grand masters. If you were in a room with them you were in a room full of people that you had to believe would deservedly end up in hell. I guess I will see them there soon.” – James Jesus Angleton, former chief of counterintelligence of the CIA.
