VOWER – apricity (REVIEW)

Vower are somewhat of a supergroup forged from the creative forces of Toska, Black Peaks, and Palm Reader, they make an explosive entrance with their debut EP “Apricity” that demands to be heard on its own terms. Opening with the adrenaline-charged “Shroud” Josh McKeown’s vocals immediately seize control as Rabea Massaad and Joe Gosney’s searing guitar riffs intertwine seamlessly with Liam Kearley’s thunderous percussion, propelling the track forward with unwavering intensity.

Vower isn’t merely a band; they’re a force of nature poised for ascension. Tracks like “In the Wake of Failure” and “False Rituals” offer a glimpse into their boundless potential, leaving a lasting impression and the EP masterfully balances raw aggression with moments of profound vulnerability, showcasing Massaad’s virtuosic guitar work and McKeown’s emotive vocal delivery.

Vower’s debut EP isn’t just a debut; it’s a bold manifesto from a band ready to carve out their own territory.
