Vodun’s debut album Possession is a tightly crafted and technically sophisticated afro-centric heavy rock record. It draws on iconic guitar and drum motifs from rock history, lilting between Zeppelin-esque power ballads and extended guitar driven prog sequences. Most reminiscent of other black female-fronted outfit Skunk Anansi, the album mixes elements of soul with confrontational subject matter such as slavery, feminism, colonialism, spiritual possession, and female gods.
