Djent/progressive metal band Blueshift have announced that they’re funding a vinyl release for their first album, Voyager. I had the pleasure of reviewing this record early, and it’s my #1 djent album of 2020 so far. The band does a stellar job of creating an atmosphere and sounds up there with the likes of ERRA and Volumes.
This crowdfunding campaign comes as the band is unsigned and self-funded. They’ve garnered a following thanks to landing videos on Dreambound and having a breakthrough sound, but creating vinyl is far from cheap.
