4 stars Listening diary 3rd July, 2021: Vola - Witness (djent, 2021)

I'm glad to see Vola carve themselves a niche in the prog metal mainstream (if such a thing exists) with this album - although the whole djent thing was played out even before their genre-bending debut came out, the other elements of their sound are undeniably worth celebrating. The melodic and harmonic language here, as has been the case on their other albums, has almost entirely been borrowed from fellow Danes Mew - and that's not a bad thing. Mew's ability to craft catchy but peculiar vocal melodies is second to none, and Vola have applied it seamlessly to a metal framework. And even though you can argue that this album wears its influences very strongly, the combination of those influences is truly unique, and anyone making music as catchy as this gets a plus in my book, no matter how generic.

7.3 (4th listen)
