Timing of the Void was recorded at Folkvang Studios in Austin, TX and produced by Bryan Richie of fellow ATX metalheads The Sword. Featuring eight monolithic tracks of the quartet's fist-raising "InstruMetal", the record's title and overarching theme is based on The Book of Five Rings, a text on kenjutsu and the martial arts written by Japanese swordsman Miyamoto Musashi circa 1645. In a recent news item published on EAGLE CLAW, the Austin Chronicle wrote, "Like Musashi, the local quartet's instrumentals are dually Zen and violent, and their timing and attack is martial. Not just a titular reference, the swordsman's lessons are the basis for the music on Timing of the Void."
"We are so proud of this album!" said EAGLE CLAW guitarist Matt Rade. "Everything about it turned out better than we expected (and we already knew it was gonna kick ass). Bryan Richie really helped bring this album together and captured our live spontaneity in the studio. We put the focus on getting to the point quicker, which has given us and the songs more energy than ever before."
”Austin’s Eagle Claw may only have been around for five years but its bludgeoning instru-metal is sure to stand the test of time. Passages of slow burning stoner-rock and moments of old school thrash-metal are all part and parcel of this pulverizing package. All in all, it’s an aural onslaught that could fly the flag for the metal genre in any decade.”
“Watching EAGLE CLAW is only half the experience. The other half is a physical experience. You get to feel it. Or maybe “survive” is a better word. It’s just relentless, minor key riffage.”

”Timing of the Void folds beauty, structure and form together with tone, aggressiveness and inspiration into the defining album for Eagle Claw. From the first note to the last, one of my favorite albums of the year”
- Chuck Loesch, 101X NO CONTROL RADIO
”Austin’s Most Dangerous Band”
