Voyag3r (pronounced Voyager 3) return with their 3rd studio album, War Mask. Expanding on the sonic pallet the band created with their debut, Doom Fortress, and follow up 2xLP, Are You Synthetic?, Voyag3r deliver a diverse, dark and dynamic collection of songs, including a cover of the King Crimson classic, Red. Heavier tracks, such as Ancient Enemies, bring the rock element to the forefront, while more open tracks like Sequenza Di Mezzanotte, showcase a 70s vibed, organic sound.
