Vorgas mission, to capture the feelings of both awe and utter hopelessness experienced when staring up into the night sky.
Charting a course into the void since 2016 by founding member Atlas while living in Scotland, the band became a fully realised outfit once he moved to Germany. With members from the UK, Bulgaria and Germany the multinational outfit got to work recording their initial offering ‘Radiant Gloom’.
After releasing the EP in 2019, they quickly caught the attention of Vendetta Records (releasing it on vinyl), Folkvangr Records (releasing it on cassette) and Transcending Obscurity Records who the band were quickly signed to.
Following up their debut EP, Vorga returned with an absolutely scintillating full length titled ‘Striving Toward Oblivion’ which expanded upon the music of their debut and took it to new heights, more powerful and streamlined than ever before.
On release, the record surpassed all expectations, recieving widespread critical acclaim and making many year end ‘best of’ lists.
Aside from the music the band have made a name for themselves with their striking depiction of futurstic, dystopian black metal. Adorned in UV corpsepaint and with an atmospheric and compelling light show, the band always leave a lasting impression on those who see them.
