Void Vator is a heavy hard rock band out of Los Angeles, California. Lucas Kanopa (Vocals/Guitar) and German Moura (Drums) visited Los Angeles from their native country of Uruguay to attend the NAMM show in winter of 2013, and immediately fell in love with the rock culture of the city. Both German and Lucas began working on establishing legal citizenship and played various bands in Los Angeles, chasing the elusive rock and roll dream as so many have before.
In winter of 2015, Lucas met with guitarist Erik Kluiber at Amp Rehearsal Studios in North Hollywood. Erik had recently parted ways with his previous band Gypsyhawk (Metal Blade Records) and was looking for a new project to put his efforts into. Lucas and Erik hit it off musically and found that their playing styles, creativity, and musical direction were compatible and complimented each other.
Void Vator began writing material in North Hollywood and playing shows in the local Los Angeles Heavy Metal Rock scene. Erik was acquaintances with legendary rock producer Ulrich Wild from back in his days in Gypsyhawk. Ulrich attended early Void Vator shows and one day approached the band with a recording deal with his new start up production company called WURMGROUP. Void Vator was excited to be given this opportunity of being included as one of Ulrich's first WURMGROUP bands and have his production talents on their debut EP.
Before the EP was recorded, it became clear that the lineup at the time was not going to work out. Lucas reached out to his childhood friend German Moura and asked if he would be interested in playing drums in Void Vator. German was playing drums for White Wizzard at the time. Coincidentally, guitarist Erik Kluiber was the lead guitar player for White Wizzard on their 2010 recording “Over The Top” (Earache Records).
“Dehumanized” was recorded around the late fall/early winter holiday season of 2016. The debut single “Time has Come” was released digitally towards the beginning 2017 as a teaser to build a buzz for what was yet to come from Void Vator. “Time Has Come” was also released as the debut video shot and directed by German's wife Janilee Svardstal.
The “Time Has Come” video showcases the high energy and hook driven Heavy Rock approach that
Void Vator is becoming know for. Filled with catchy ear pleasing vocals, dual guitar theatrics, and driving precision beats, “Time Has Come” would be a contender for heavy rotation on Modern Rock Radio if Modern Rock Radio still played new music.
Nearing in on the “Dehumanized” cd release date of July 26th, 2017, Void Vator changed up to a three piece for a short while to keep the momentum going. There must have been some sort of astrological phenomenon occurring because Sam Harman's name came up in discussion with Ulrich Wild. Erik had originally originally approached Sam a year previously to play bass for Void Vator, but Sam was busy in multiple projects. This was a year later though, and Sam came out to a Wednesday night Void Vator performance at Skinnys Lounge in North Hollywood. The next week he made his Void Vator debut onstage at the legendary Viper Room in West Hollywood.
After a successful “Dehumanized” Cd Release party on July 26th, 2017, the band has grown rapidly through several tour throughout the US, most recently touring the southwest and midwest for the Fall of Winter 2018 tour. Void Vator could not be any stronger than at his moment. New songs are being recorded with Bill Metoyer while the “Dehumanized” CD is still being marketed. The best way to keep up with Void Vator's activities is through social media pages such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Pick up “Dehumanized” directly through Void Vator's Big Cartel page at www.voidvator.bigcartel.com which offers both physical and digital copies. The cd is also available through all the standard digital outlets including iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc. Pick up “Dehumanized” and get your first taste of what has just begun from Los Angeles's Void Vator.
