Vichama is a five piece that have taken elements from many genres to create something deadly.
Hailing from Hastings in the South Coast, Vichama is a five piece metal band that have taken elements from sub genres such as groove, djent, hardcore, death and black metal, and have twisted these to create their own brand of 1066 metal.
People have described Vichama’s sound in a variety of ways, comparing the band to Killswitch, Pantera, Machine Head and once as a ‘Doobed-up Devin Townsend’. One thing that is unanimously agreed upon is the gut punching ferocity and hateful energy that the band bring to the stage time and time again.
Here is the latest track from Vichama called ‘Black & Blue’.
Starting in late 2016, Vichama quickly got a powerful set together and unleashed it on to their hometown Hastings, with positive feedback. In 2017, Vichama honed their sound and got to work in the studio. late 2017 saw Vichama release their debut EP ‘Legion’. Vichama began to break further afield, with the likes of Deepwater Festival and a live slot on Deal Radio. 2018 already has a few things lined up for Vichama in the south coast area, and the guys are already beginning to produce a full length album.
Filmed as a live studio session comes ‘Vile’.
Dead Spoon on vocals, who uses his melancholic views coupled with an impressive range to create a genuine and brutal sound to the forefront of the stage.
Biish & Slaughter are the ying and yang on guitar, working in tandem to produce the most crushing tones & riffs possible. Together with Grudge providing a low end roar on bass, they make an almost orchestral cacophony, mixing in-your-face riffs with low chugs and dark melodies.
Nik Metalhurst on drums may as well be four different people. He takes compound timing, insane footwork and an astonishing sense of dynamics and mixes these together to deliver a headbanger’s wet dream. All together, these five produce a hellish, unfamiliar sound that may just be up your street.
Let’s see what Vichama has to say about Vocalzone!
“Our vocalist is one incredibly angry sounding dude, but he does have throat problems. I turned him on to Vocalzone and it’s been a game-changer for him.”
