While the project only has two songs under their belt, Aseity – the project of frontwoman Monica Roe and Rob Volkoff – is well on their way to success. The project, which blends the vocal influences of bands like Evanescence with the instrumentals of, say, bands like Veil Of Maya, is already off to a strong start. Founded just recently, the band has two songs out, including “Silent Whispers”, and they’ve already racked up 15,000 streams on Spotify – which certainly has helped Aseity get off to a strong start.
Speaking of the aforementioned “Silent Whispers”, that’s the band’s newest song – and it features Left To Suffer vocalist Taylor Barber, too. Give it a spin below for a solid representation of their sound.
Aseity (pronounced Ah-see-it-y) was founded by Monica Soe (pronounced Soh-ee) in January of 2020. Originally, her vision was to form a full band by searching for members via Facebook, however, that did not turn out. Shortly after the member hunt failed, she happened to meet Robert Volkoff (Life Renewed) through mutual friends of a music group (Music Mentors Online.) Robert loved her passion for the project so much, that he agreed to help her create music and develop the project. In doing so, they discovered both of their musical backgrounds and influences were a perfect match to make Aseity something special. Robert comes from an extensive background with 10 years of experience in writing, recording, and performing. Not only does he play guitar and bass, but he is an experienced harsh vocalist with an understanding of audio production. Monica had a love for singing at a very young age, which led her to gain interest in taking piano lessons at the age of 10. In school she attended both choir and band for 6 years, gaining her classical training experience. Together, they have a love for the metal genre with similar musical interests. Aseity’s goal is to create a unique sound and powerful message.
