As the title says, Void of Silence are an Italian/Irish doom metal band with Alan from folk/black metal band Primordial on vocals. Following in the footsteps of Irish/Italian folkish doom metal band, Doomsword. This is a trend I'd like to see continue.

I seriously suggest any fans of doom metal or Primordial to check them out. Alan's voice is so unique that you can't help but think you're hearing Primordial at some points.

I've only got their newest release, which is the only one Alan has appeared on so far, so I recommend that one. It comes highly rated by multiple metal sites.

they got Nemtheanga? Awesome, gotta check them out when I have time

doom metal + primordial seems like a win/win situation

I... I should return to Arkham.

^It is.

I only just got the album, I wasn't expecting it to be this good when I got home and listened to it.

Wow this is nice stuff.. I think some of the tracks up there would sound better without vocals even. But of course a stellar performance from Alan as always.
Quote by Ultraussie
I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

burzum IS nazi. well, varg is.

This already won me with having Primordial in the title.

Cool stuff, I'll need to check into getting an album. And Alan sounds fantastic, he fits incredibly well.


#7
^Indeed he does.


Now I wait for a few of you to get familiar with the band, so the discussion can start.

*waits*

Good stuff. I will be looking for some of their stuff from now on as I need to increase my doom collection and the singer from Primordial is great.

VoS is fantastic. I wish they would release some new material, as its been four years.

The people at Code666 are awesome for these guys along with Negura Bunget.

I know, I only just got the album because I heard Alan was the singer, so I haven't been waiting for a new one but I'd still like more with him on it. It's strange that it's taking so long, but you have to take some of the band living in Italy, while Alan is here in Dublin into consideration.
Quote by metal7690
**** dude, thanks. This is exactly the kind of doom I've been looking for. Great stuff.

No problem, glad you like it.

Personally we have started to finally work on a new Void of Silence album. The Italian band I contributed vocals to for the last album "Human Antithesis". Try and find it if you have not heard it. When the new one will be out I don't know but so far it sounds haunting and beautiful.
Good stuff.

I was just listening to Human Antithesis earlier and realized I never posted back in this thread.

Fantastic stuff, incredibly dark atmosphere, and Alan does wonderful as usual.
#15
BUMP.


Just downloaded Human Antithesis.

Um..

Holy fuck.

I'm like 10 minutes into the title track and this is so good. Allan's voice is godlike. So crushing and melancholic.

Yes, more people listening to these guys.

I've haven't kept myself up to date on the band AT ALL, so I have no idea what they story is with the new album.

Can anyone enlighten me?

How the hell does Nemtheanga do it....

Good stuff as always. Lovin the doom.

Absolutely crushing stuff with amazing atmosphere and vocals.
