VAZUM was formed in 2017 by Zach Pliska (vocals/guitar/drums) after playing drums in various Detroit outfits. In 2019 Emily Sturm (vocals/bass) joined the band, adding an uncompromising sound and aesthetic which they describe as deathgaze; combining the raw energy of deathrock with the depth of shoegaze. Zach and Emily continued as a duo in 2020 releasing two albums (Vampyre Villa and Rated V) and an EP (Vazumnacht). In June, 2021 VAZUM released the album V+, garnering more acclaim and visibility while further honing the deathgaze sound.
