70000 Tons of Metal - The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise

Interview

Vokonis Frontman Simon Ohlsson Discusses New Album "Odyssey," "Blackened Wings" Music Video, Seventies Prog Rock And More

No matter how much metal evolves, there will always be a place for the Sabbath influenced grooves and Lovecraftian horror themes. From Pentagram to Orange Goblin, the influence of seventies music and literature lives on. So it is with Vokonis, the three piece from the Swedish town of BorĂ¥s, who in just a few weeks will release their fourth album, "Odyssey" through The Sign Records.

To find out more about the record, the band, the influence of seventies progressive rock bands, artwork and more, I spoke with guitarist/vocalist Simon Ohlsson. You can watch the interview in full below.
