This is The Ancient Void's first full-length album. Stylistically, it takes elements of Baroque style and combines them with modern music styles of hard rock and metal, framing a disctinct sound best described as a point where J.S. Bach meets a Doom Metal band, a Black Metal band, a Death Metal band, and a Thrash Metal band. Song structures range from the simple, catchy hook to full-fledged Baroque style compositional pieces. The album, Voided, seeks to explore the entire range of musical elements from the past five centuries of Western hemisphere music.
Because of the scope of the musical direction, lyrical content was forced to meet the same standard of competency and personal meaning for the authors. Therefore, the brooding subject matter meanders through the chasms of personal emotion, conviction, fear, sexuality, and depressive anxiety, rooted ultimately in a personal sense of foreboding necrophobia. It is intended that people can relate to the subject matter, versus the shallow content proferred by the pop music machine. The Ancient Void will not make music without meaning.
The band hails from Marietta, GA. They were formed roughly twelve years ago under another name with a bigger lineup, but the band determined over the course of the last half decade that the two man creative process is significantly more manageable and productive than anything more.
