VOYAG3R (pronounced Voyager 3) returns with their 3rd studio album, War Mask. Expanding on the sonic pallet the band developed with their debut full length Doom Fortress, and follow up 2xLP, Are You Synthetic?, VOYAG3R delivers a diverse, dark, and dynamic collection of songs, including a cover of the King Crimson classic “Red”. Heavier tracks, such as “Ancient Enemies”, bring the rock element to the forefront, while more open tracks like “Sequenza Di Mezzanotte,” showcase a ’70s-vibed, organic sound.
