The band’s loyal international fanbase has praised its incredibly catchy songwriting and compared its sound to a mixture of AMORPHIS’ thirst for melody, SOILWORK’s heaviness and the crystal vocal clarity of A-HA’s Morton Harket.
Conceived in 1999 by Danny Estrin, a German-born musician, VOYAGER has 3 full-length albums under its belt, each one propelling them further into cult status as an elite progressive metal band. While “Element V” (2004) was celebrated for its uplifting variety, the band’s opuses have continued on a darker path, with “uniVers” (2007) receiving critical acclaim for its melancholic and emotional side and “I am the revolution” (2009) reaching an even heavier, darker but still overwhelmingly melodic spectrum. “The Meaning of I” (2011) achieved a zenith in the band’s career, with reviews and international acclaim of the highest calibre.
With an impressive history of Australian music awards, as well as many titles of “album of the month” in Romanian, Finnish, Italian, German and Belgian music press, the band’s notoriety for its energetic live performances has captured audiences worldwide, so much that VOYAGER became the first Australian band ever to be invited to play at the prestigious PROGPOWER USA festival in 2011. The performance was topped off with the band having the longest signing session in the twelve year history of the festival.
Since then, the band has also seen a recent upsurge in popularity in the United States, with a 17 show tour in 2012 with RHAPSODY OF FIRE. In 2013, performances with EPICA, ALESTORM and Indonesia’s HAMMERSONIC festival saw a further increase in the band’s fanbase.
