About the band:
Vanishing Kids, the somnambulic doom metal group from Wisconsin, released their album Heavy Dreamer on November 30th on LP, CD and digital formats through Svart Records.
Vanishing Kids has been an ever evolving artistic and musical journey since the early 2000’s with core members and founder’s Jason Hartman (Jex Thoth), and Nikki Drohomyreky on vocals. As kids of the 70s and 80s who grew up on metal, prog rock, krautrock, psych, punk and goth, they have managed to carve out a niche of their own for themselves.
The band’s newest and most powerful culmination arose when Jason Hartman’s childhood hero and midwest metal, legend, Jerry Sofran (Lethal Heathen, Mirrored Image) joined in 2013. Shortly thereafter, the hard-hitting, Hart Allan Miller (Wartorn, Deathwish, Tenement) on drums to complete the lineup.
Being the first full-length outing from Vanishing Kids in over five years, Heavy Dreamer is soaked in captivating shoegaze-y fuzz vaguely reminiscent of what My Bloody Valentine would sound like, had they grown up on a diet of psychedelic doom metal and occult rock.
