Offering (ESA Remix)
Released: 10 March 2022
So haunting but with an absolute cracking thumping beat. An adrenaline fuelled remix that is so damn good.
So grab this, put your headphones on and play very loud.-VK Mike
VVMPYRE returns after a transformation with the single “Offering” to bring a heavier take on the track, courtesy of ESA (Electronic Substance Abuse). ESA’s massive production turns the track into a style that fits into the Industrial Bass that is his signature, but wouldn’t be too far out from the Darksynth of VVMPYRE‘s roots. The anthemic nature is matched, with an intro that could move an entire stadium, and a bassline that would fill any dancefloor.
Throughout the six minutes that would compete with some of VVMPYRE‘s own influences, the track constantly evolves with new melodies, switching grooves, and the warping vocals that bring the cult-like feel in a brand new way. It’s a remix that VVMPYRE felt deserved its own single, and yet it only gets darker from here…
About the studio original version:
Darkwave act VVMPYRE begins a new reign in blood in 2022 with a horrific new single “Offering”. Inspired by vampire cults and 70’s cult horror films, “Offering” is a track that personifies the leaders of these cults in an alluring anthem,
VVMPYRE creates a modernized sound with a rekindled inspiration from artists like Sisters Of Mercy and Inkubus Sukkubus.
In a search for the right voice, VVMPYRE reached out to CORLYX singer Caitlin Stokes. VVMPYRE‘s twisted imagination is met with a set of lyrics as if the chant to a ceremony against the backdrop of increasingly massive and infectious melodies.
Together with VVMPYRE‘s production, “Offering” is a monstrous mix of classic electrogoth, 70’s horror scores, and modern darkwave to form a bloody anthem that unleashes a barrage of hooks. Brandon Ashley of DTuned Brighton Productions and The Dark adds a gripping guitar to the mix, building the track up further in the chorus and bridge, only equally met by VVMPYRE‘s haunting organ melodies.
