Listen to the new album by Vesen ‘Rorschach’

By on 13 December 2016

The new album by Norwegian black thrashers Vesen ‘Rorschach’ is out December 16 on Soulseller Records. You can buy a copy of ‘Rorschach’ here.

Quite uncommon for the genre, the successor of 2012’s ‘This Time It’s Personal’ is a concept album and though it may sound progressive, the music is actually more regressive in a sense. But of course VESEN explore new ideas and grounds as well and head onwards in all directions at the same time, creating a unique and matured blend. ‘Rorschach’ is a concept album, certainly lyrically, less so musically. It started out as a concept spanning four albums, but through the process of working with it we found that it fit better on a single album. Overall, it deals with themes quite common in the Vesen universe, which is mental problems. Hence the name of the album, ‘Rorschach’, which is a psychological test used to test a person’s potentially underlying thought disorders, used in mental health facilities. So without going into too much detail, ‘Rorschach’ tells the story of a person trying to escape his/her problems, and then it builds from there.”
