Today is Vinnie Paul’s birthday and as a gift to the Metal God, we should all check out the latest signee to Vinnie’s label (Big Vin Records), Seventh SEVENTH VOID.
SEVENTH VOID, the new band formed by TYPE O NEGATIVE guitarist Kenny Hickey and drummer Johnny Kelly, will release its debut album on April 21 via Big Vin Records, the label formed by HELLYEAH/ex-PANTERA drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott. “It’s an amazing record,” Vinnie recently said. “I mixed the whole thing for the guys. It goes somewhere between SOUNDGARDEN meets BLACK SABBATH meets a little AUDIOSLAVE, with some TYPE O thrown in there. It’s really nice, dark, sludgy… Kenny’s vocals are great.”
Rounded out by bassist Hank Hell (INHUMAN) and guitarist Matt Brown (ex-SUPERMASSIV), SEVENTH VOIDTYPE O’s tradition of slow, heavy riffs and existential lyrics, but with a slightly sludgier, “stonier” flavor. continues
The band’s first single “Heaven is Gone” can be heard on their Myspace page. Check it out: http://myspace.com/seventhvoid
