Swedish experimental metallers VAK are ready to deliver more mesmerizing sludge with their second single “Sewer Café”.
As always VAK delivers top tier experimental metal.
Sewer Café is a technically intriguing and musically challenging track, where VAK plays around with sonic elements in the very outskirts of the sludge genre. Resulting in a short yet adventurous track built on melodic rhythms and an underlying disturbing pulse.

“The tricky track ‘Sewer Cafe’ mobilizes our melodic force and is an example of how far down our heaviest riffs are able to dig. We wanted to give the listener the sensation of helplessly falling through the soil, and into the forgotten catacombs of the city underground. And here waits another surprise: a concealed cafe with various offers and the possibility to speak your mind without fear of betrayal!”
Well-produced, doom-groovy, stoner/sludge Swedish metal band VAK were highly praised for their previous album “Loud Wind” (2019).
UK Magazine Zero Tolerance wrote that it was “one of 2019’s contenders for best stoner metal album! […] It’s one thing to pack an album full of crushing riffs, memorable hooks, and passionate performances, but VAK truly evoke a unified togetherness that beams throughout”, while Metal Temple (UK) gave it a 9/10, stating that “VAK is its own unique breed, one that has hints of the past but is focused solely on the future.” Praised for their ability to incorporate more than just one style and genre in their music, drawing inspiration from a great variety of bands and artists,
VAK’s upcoming album is something to look forward to!
