Hailing from the streets of Los Angeles, Void Vator took me by surprise at first listen. While I usually get into most of the bands that Sell Your Soul promoter Loy Smoak brings through SA, I was considerably impressed by this thrash-inspired rock ’n’ roll quartet whose singer/guitar player and drummer share Uruguayan roots. And though neo-thrash has been rearing its head since the early aughts, it makes sense that these guys mix a little bit of it into their sound, considering how popular thrash metal is in South America. Void Vator might become your favorite new band.
