Vague Voices is a collaborative project between Stefan Bachvarov (Cyberian) and Angel Simitchiev (Mytrip). What initially started as a commissioned live performance for Sofia Game Night 2018 – an event dedicated to gaming culture – was further expanded due to their shared interest in subjects like video game sound, depressive club music and black metal.
The result is ‘Гробник', a varying full-length that inhabits multiple realms of of contemporary electronic music. Murky long-form ambient pieces are scattered all across the record. Those morph into the reverb-drenched sporadically percussive likes of "Water Prison" or "Extinction Is The Rule" and it all climaxes in the abstract rhythmic explorations of "Armor", "Berserk" and "Soul Mirror".
The name of the record comes from an old Bulgarian word meanings an elderly person approaching their death, a mythical vampire-like creature or а grave-digger.
