VAK is back, presenting their second album "Loud Wind" through Indie Recordings, produced by themselves and mixed and mastered by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna). "Loud Wind" consists of a blend of different songs where each has its own distinct idea.

The members of VAK have a rich background in various bands and genres, such as Switch Opens (ex. Fingerspitzengefühl), Misery Loves Co., Slowland, Råtta, Sesam, Gordon Fights, Music is the Weapon, The Field and Gösta Berlings Saga. This is a great influence of the band's original sound.

Robin Skarin on keyboards creates a mesmerizing approach to metal through the lens of his jazz background, drawing mainly from Keith Jarrett. Guitarist Ivan Rey's input also stems from non-metal influences preventing VAK from becoming another boring metal act.

The sound of VAK is hard to grasp. But if one wants to name inspirations, one could mention acts like Radiohead, Tool, Mastodon, Genesis, Kate Bush, Rage Against the Machine, Breach, Neil Young and Soundgarden. And this is essential: all five voices of the band are equally important, VAK is emphatically democratic in their process of creativity, and they also invited friends to a pre-listening session for input.
