Man, how I love Vision of Disorder. Always have, and I always will. I just feel like we’ve been waiting forever for a new V.O.D. disc, and I don’t know what to believe anymore. Like last August — we were told by V.O.D. that they’d be hitting the studio to record their new one last September. But it didn’t happen.
Since then, Vision of Disorder still have not made their way into a recording studio. But they’re now claiming that in May, the disc will be tracked. I’m starting to lose patience with you, Francis! I want this record yesterday, and I feel like V.O.D. have just been playing shows and really just have to get this thing recorded and find a fucking label for it (ten bucks says they sign with E1).
It will be the band’s first studio effort in ten years, and songs set to appear on the disc include “At Arm’s Length,” “Hard Times,” “Annihilator” and “Be Up On It.” Bassist Mike Fleischmann told UGO that “on these new songs, we have kind of mixed up all of our past efforts into a blender with a dash of new flavor, and we are excited to see what V.O.D. fans will think of it.”
We just want the fucking album already. Just record it and release it — as soon as possible. No more delays, guys.
Last year, frontman Tim Williams told me “we’re not rushing too much” and that two of the songs he was most proud of were “At Arm’s Length” and “Annihilator.” He also told me the songs they’ve finished so far “sound very VOD, kind of old Imprint-y type songs, but with a new, good energy to them. Raw. Good stuff. There’s elements of VOD-style hardcore in a couple of songs, which is exciting to see again.”
