Guitarist Matt Brown has left SEVENTH VOID, the band featuring former TYPE O NEGATIVE guitarist Kenny Hickey and drummer Johnny Kelly. Kelly states, “No replacement has been made yet. Meanwhile, the rest of us are working on demos and will hopefully be recording the next SEVENTH VOID record before the holidays. At least that’s our goal!”
SEVENTH VOID had its debut album, “Heaven Is Gone”, released in Europe in November 2010 via Napalm Records. The CD was made available with brand new cover artwork.
“Heaven Is Gone” was released in the United States on April 21, 2009 via Vinnie Paul‘s (PANTERA, HELLYEAH) Big Vin Records. The CD sold around 1,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. It debuted at No. 21 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
Rounded out by bassist Hank Hell (INHUMAN), SEVENTH VOID continues TYPE O‘s tradition of slow, heavy riffs and existential lyrics, but with a slightly sludgier, “stonier” flavor.
