Vacha is a raw black metal band from Austin TX formed in 2016. The music is inspired by 80s black metal (Bathory, Mayhem, Celtic Frost) as well as minimalist 90s black metal (Von, Darkthrone, Xibalba). They present a simple stripped down approach in their music and the aesthetic of their live show to differentiate themselves from more ornate and theatrical black metal bands. Vacha practices and supports DIY music production and promotion as a method of insulating themselves from the rampant white supremacy and toxic masculinity that is endemic of the extreme metal scene. 100% of merchandise profits are donated to the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund.
