Voices - Frightened

Akercocke returned after a decade-long studio silence last year, but this wasn’t the mark of the end of David Gray’s Voices – far from it.

Bands such as Enforcer, and VOJD (formerly Black Trip) have grown their fanbase considerably since their humble beginnings, and even legendary musicians have gone on to worship the old school through projects like The Dagger.

We speak to Khaal to learn more.
