The Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse Return to Earth and take up music. 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, 2009 via Big Vin Records, the label formed by ex-PANTERA/DAMAGE PLAN/HELLYEAH drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott.
"It's an amazing record," Vinnie recently said. "I mixed the whole thing for the guys. It goes somehere 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 VOID continues TYPE O's tradition of slow, heavy riffs and existential lyrics, but with a slightly sludgier, "stonier" flavor.
A CD-release party will be held at the Clubhouse, the Dallas nightclub founded by Vinnie Paul and his late brother, PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott on the day of release.
