VOUNA conjures a singular Cascadian Funeral Doom atmosphere that is unlike anything that has existed before. Their self-titled LP will be released by Artemisia Records November 2018. https://vouna.bandcamp.com
All music was composed and all instruments performed by frontwoman Yianna Bekris (previously of Vradiazei, Eigenlicht, and Sadhaka). The music was inspired and influenced by Finnish funeral doom, English masters My Dying Bride, Eastern European black metal, and Greek folk music.
The album was recorded entirely at the Wolves in the Throne Room studio, Owl Lodge, which is located at the edge of an ancient forest in Olympia, WA. Razor sharp tremolo picked guitars cut through the heart like a knife. Mournfully sung vocals and cinematic melodies are combined with crushing doom drums, while layers of primitive 90s digital synths create a lush and rugged soundscape.

Really Really Free Market! No money. No trades. Everything is free. This market is based on a gift-economy... capitalism NO! But come to the really really free market to give away your old stuff and/or get new-to-you stuff. Bring food to share. Bring your special items that you don't use but can't throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines...your free box). Bring your special talents to offer people (ex. haircuts, message, reiki...). Come and take what you can use and say thanks! We will have folks to check in with as you arrive. First come first served, space may be limited. Don't be late and be sure to check in with the organizers when you get there. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market. Note: We are shifting to 2nd and 4th Saturdays. https://www.facebook.com/events/662467710875294/
