Out of the ashes of the legendary Type O Negative
, a new band emerges from the very heart of Brooklyn, New York. Type O Negative
veterans Kenny Hickey
and Johnny Kelly
could not have chosen a better moniker for their new group, than the Dante-inspired Seventh Void
On the New Yorkers' debut, it rains despair, sin, agony, fire, and doom metal in its purest form. Seventh Void
needs not offer unnecessary embellishments. The quartet rightfully focuses on the genre's quintessence: hypnotic riffs, heavy grooves, and haunting vocal lines. Kenny Hickey
skillfully masters both guitar and vocal duties, while transforming songs like 'Closing In', 'Broken Sky', or the title-track into first-class doom anthems.
The top-notch production emphasizes the album's obscure character, as well as its unique Brooklyn spirit. 'Heaven is Gone' is an album that will undoubtedly take more than just Type O Negative
fans by storm.
