Mirroring the mysterious allure surrounding their latest creative phase, VOLA has announced the “Friend of a Phantom Europe Tour 2024”. Known for their innovative approach to progressive metal, VOLA continues to captivate audiences with their blend of intense rhythmic complexity and poignant lyrical narratives. The band has always transcended genre boundaries, delivering music that is as intellectually stimulating as it is emotionally resonant.

Over the years, VOLA’s discography has showcased their bold fusion of styles.
