Vessel - Dark in the Light

Vessel - Dark in the Light
Unearthed from the goldfields of Bendigo, Australia, Vessel is more than just another rock group from the land down under. Having kicked off as a solo project from guitarist Jordan Forster, Vessel started out with a variety of guest musicians and vocalists. Though it took years to put together his core lineup, eventually Forster paired with the husky voice of Mason Matheson to front his band. Since completing their latest album "Vagabond Blues"with the help of more guest musicians, Matheson has picked up a bass guitar and brought in the live drum work of old friend Hayden Collins. Thus united, Vessel have greater momentum than ever before.

Inspired from his travels around the world, Forster has used his broad experiences to fuel lyrics about global issues like racism, conservative governments, organised religion and climate policy. His international perspective has gotten the attention of Blabbermouth, gained praise from local institution The Hard Rock Show and even placed Vessel in the revered Doomed & Stoned in Australia compilation.

The band fuses the influences of everyone from The Sword to Uncle Acid by way of Thin Lizzy and Monster Magnet.

About this track...

Dark in the Light sees Vessel explore the juxtaposition of a danceable groove paired with lyrics describing their disgust by the failings of the Catholic Church amidst claims of historical sex abuse in Australia. Specifically, the acknowledgement of the Melbourne diocese of satanic ritual abuse and murder in the 1960s.
