VIZA is back in the recording studio! close ×


Los Angeles, CA – VI·ZA is excited to announce the release of the group’s tenth new digital song release for 2017-2018. Following the online releases of “Viktorious”, “Cash Karma”, “Velvet Shade”, “A World of Broken Mirrors”, “Aphrodite”, “Vicious Game”, “Pinches”, “Sheep”, “Diabolic Angel”, “Dancing Twig” and “Tom Waits for Her” amidst acclaim and the anticipation of a loyal fan base, “Pathway” has now arrived for listeners to enjoy a stunning audio experience molded in the form of a rock epic.

“For our final digital release of the Unorthodox Revival EPs, we wanted to do something special,” said theoudplayer. “This song blends some of our traditional time signatures with a rock chorus and the result is quite the hybrid that our fans will really love,” he added.

After returning to the stage in early 2017 the band has been writing and recording actively the past several months into 2018, concentrating on composing new material as the band enters a new chapter of its growth. The band was excited to close the book on its first 6 releases, which was compiled as a new EP named “The Unorthodox Revival: Volume I”. VI·ZA then continued to write and record a next batch of 6 tracks, which will populate the second volume of “The Unorthodox Revival” series set for release in November 2018. All songs – such as the recent October 9, 2018 release of “Pathway” – followed the same monthly digital release format. The band recorded with talented recording engineer Yury Anisonyan out of Live Wire Studios in Los Angeles. Anisonyan provided expertise and a unique mixing philosophy to VI·ZA’s sound, creating a unique tapestry of soundscapes.

“This was an excellent song written by my bandmate theoudplayer, from melody to harmony to poetry,” said K’noup.

Each new song has been released on VI·ZA’s dedicated YouTube channel at

VI·ZA’s new material is an exploration of sounds both old and new, and is sure to pique the interest of both diehard fans and new listeners. With soaring vocals and a diverse array of instruments like the oud and duduk to combine with guitar, bass and drums, there are some exciting possibilities when it comes to both the core and potential artistic horizon of the band’s sound. Song titles include “Cash Karma”, “Viktorious”, “A World of Broken Mirrors”, “Aphrodite”, “Velvet Shade” and “Vicious Game”, “Pinches”, “Sheep”, “Diabolic Angel”, “Dancing Twig”, “Tom Waits for Her” and “Pathway”, representing diverse but resonant themes ranging from satire, continuity and social commentary to raw human emotions like love, loss and passion. Whether it’s VI·ZA’s bread and butter energetic style of pulsing percussion with exotic melodies or experimental ideas exploring the spiritual side of their art, the guys promise to keep things interesting with fans coming back for more, especially when it comes to documenting their work in the studio.

Keep an eye out for the band on Facebook ( and Instagram (@vizamusic).

After releasing several albums, performing at major festivals worldwide, joining System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian for two worldwide tours and supporting Gogol Bordello and Skindred, VIZA is looking to explore a new dimension of sound. As a fixture of the Sunset club scene known for energetic and captivating live performances, VIZA is sure to deliver excitement in the form of shows and new songs in 2018.

Pathway to war…

Start the foreplay, aggravated.
Take a look here, watch it glow.
Counting days, we are barricaded.
What’s the pathway I don’t know.

Can you see the wolf as it stands in between us?
Just walk away and tell the people we’re no more.

Bare your fangs now, am I crazy?
Is she here now? Is it real?
I don’t see you, you’re hiding.
She is here now, this is real.

Can you see the wolf as it stands in between us?
Just walk away and tell the people we’re no more.
Can you see the wolf as it stands in between us?
And as we fall we understand we are at war.

Pathway to war…

Can you see the wolf as it stands in between us?
And as we fall we understand we are at war.

Pathway to war!
