VÖÖDÖÖ RELEASES MUSIC VIDEO FOR 'LAY ME TO REST'
Thursday alert: Vöödöö are premiering their music video for their debut single "Lay Me To Rest" today! It is four minutes of soulful heaviness with vocals that will take you to another landscapes. Press play and dive in!
The band commented on the video:
"We are extremely proud to present the video for our first single 'Lay Me To Rest'. The video is a story with a twist of sorts, or is it? Being stalked by shadows and chased by darkness, or is it all in our head? The video is a mix between a storytelling plot mixed with shots of the band playing in an old abandoned water power plant factory. Together they create the atmoshpere for the lyrics and the message to blossom.
The location of the abandoned factory may remind you of something that was working but now its left for dead. A few decades ago it was the beating heart of a small community, but now it is abandoned and lonely, similar to how we feel when we dwell in the struggles that are imprisoning our mind. The aggressively heavy, though simplistic sound of the song amplifies the aggravation, pain and struggle that is felt throughout the video. The story telling portion of the video was filmed by Gunbjørg Gunnarsdóttir, while the live action band shoots and projector scenes were filmed by Troll Toftenes, who also cut and did the final editing of the video. The inspiration for the 'Lay Me To Rest' comes from drummer Giuliano's own personal experience with loss and hopelessness , and the steps one must dare to take to reach the light at the end of a very dark tunnel."

The unique sound of Vöödöö comes from the bands wide span in musical background an approach. Guitarist Sveinung Bukve is a gear-freak with a vast selection of pedals, sometimes combined to create overwhelming huge effects more similar to an organ or a spacecraft than an actual guitar, sometimes more controlled to cut through the mix with in-your-face riffs.
The rhythm section is all about hard beats and hard bass fingering, though dynamic, it is about making you feel the beat, not only in your eardrums but through the torso and into the home of your soul. Last but definitely not least Vöödöö will charm you all the way with the high-pitched mind-baffling vocals of the theatrical Gøran.
Their soundscape is reminiscent of SPAN, mixed together with the early Queens of the Stone Age, topped off with vocals that compares to Muse and Mars Volta.
