I wish I could give you a complete background on Vanen, the one-woman black metal project. Like so many other black metal projects, she remains elusive and secretive as to her actual whereabouts. All I know is she hails from the USA and shes fucking awesome.
Vanen first appeared last Halloween with a four-track ep titled Into the Dark Abyss. Now, we are treated to 6 new tracks on Among The Stars. The synthy fuzz with classic black metal vocals sounds like the first Emperor demo meeting a black metal Depeche Mode. She plays all the instruments on her tracks, and her stuff sells out fast and is limited.
Follow her on Bandcamp and Instagram. Follow Jems Label which is who has been releasing her stuff. Support women, support independent music!
