Vôdûn: Possession

Album Review

Stoner gospel renegades assume the juxtaposition

There are several moments during Possession when it feels very much like being in the congregation at some perverse stoner rock gospel choir recital.

Vôdûn singer Chantal Brown (formerly of transient berks Do Me Bad Things) has a truly extraordinary voice: strong, soulful and with lashings of bluesy pathos, she scampers across the octaves with the skill of a veteran, injecting vulnerability into every flurry of vibrato. It makes for an initially jarring combination, as the band’s proudly fuzzed-up riffs and loose-hipped swagger point to a natural affinity with Fu Manchu and Kyuss rather than anything more profoundly vocal-orientated.
