Album Review

Void, the fifth studio album and first outing for Pure Noise from the grimey Boston-based punk-metal hybrid is as furious, punishing, and relentlessly hateful a collection of songs as one can ingest in one sitting. The band's journey from standard screamo act to full-on metalcore is complete, and fans holding onto the the rudder will probably need to jump ship, as Void is the product of an entirely new machine that cuts through b******t like an icebreaker, leaving a freezing cold trench of breakdown-heavy, sonically challenging misery in its wake. Willfully unsubtle, the band's chief tonsil clearer Davey Muise lets it be known from the get-go that there will be no fun had aboard the SS Torment, as he explains his situation (“Holes, inside my broken bones/Decay, I watch my flesh rip away) on the brutal title track. Things don't get much better for the crew as the voyage continues, with stops at hateful ports like "Humaphobia," "Pornocopia," and "Holy Hell," the latter of which features a strong melodic chorus courtesy of chief clean crooner Joel Pastuszak. Void works best when it's at its most unhinged ("Yüth Decay, "All American’t," the aforementioned title track), treating its listeners like displaced rag dolls caught in the cruel hands of bullying older brothers, but there's a tad too much punitive, atonal verse riffing into soaring chorus nonsense to truly separate them from contemporaries like Killswitch Engage, Dillinger Escape Plan, and Norma Jean. Even so, each of the 11 songs, with the exception of the murky power ballad "Bienvenue," are delivered with enough good old-fashioned malevolence and technical acumen to make up for the occasional rote transgression. [Void was also released on LP.]

Customer Reviews

So good

Vanna for a long time has truly been a cornerstone of my metalcore listening staples. Most everything I've heard out of their corner is unique and easily recognizable.

I feel like however, this band didn't really find its place until Dave joined. Their sound is more solid now, then ever before. Their lyrics are from a broken mans heart, and chuggy disgusting riffs make you want to annihilate your friends in your local music joint.

Overall this album is very tight, keeps the same personal feel the entire time, and digging really hits home with the albums message.
Most of the time, the Dad Rock song on the album does not fit, this however pulls it off, and quickly became one of my favorite songs on the album.

If you want to break your own neck, and put people in a coffin, this is your album!

Holy mother f**king sh*t
Is all I have to say


It's hard to go from Evans cleans to this guys. But the screams are on a whole other level! They're up there with Dallas' from Old Maylene and the sons of Disaster's. Good ol Vanna keeping the scene alive!


Formed: 2004 in Boston, MA

Genre: Metal

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Taking influence from bands like As I Lay Dying, Norma Jean, and Every Time I Die, Boston metalcore outfit Vanna were barely together a year before signing with Epitaph Records in fall 2005. Comprising Joe Bragel (vocals), Nick Lambert (guitar/vocals), Evan Pharmakis (guitar/vocals), Brandon Davis (drums), and Shawn Marquis (bass), their music often alternated between melodic singing and visceral growling. The band parted ways with Bragel for personal reasons in February 2006, and a new vocalist,...
