Vazum: Variant

Detroit based dark post-punk trio Vazum have incorporated some R.E.M. in their sound on their new album Variant. Singer Zach Pliska channels the phrasing of Michael Stipe, on top of the industrial tinged backing, with guitarist Zachary Anderson supplying some slightly more lighthearted fills as an answer to the massive bass lines of Michael o'Connor.

Variant is an unrelenting album, a throwback to the Eighties and early Nineties, when Soundgarden and Sisters of Mercy reached their creative peak. Vazum is the right band for the wrong era, but their music can act as a gateway to appreciate the work of their predecessors.

Zach Pliska: vocals, drums, guitar
Zachary Anderson: guitars
