Below is our complete The Howling Void news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
The Howling Void returns with "Nightfall," the project's fourth full-length album of glacial, symphonic funeral doom metal. The album is due out in late 2013 via Solitude Productions.
"Nightfall" features a relatively new evolution of the sound of The Howling Void, with haunting, chanted vocals and dark ambient and orchestral touches. A teaser video has been posted on YouTube featuring short clips from several songs on the album. Check it out below.
The Howling Void has just released brand new EP "Runa," featuring new musical vision. According to a press release, the usual funeral doom has now been blended seamlessly with folk melodies and chanted vocals, for fans of Ahab, Agalloch, Drudkh, and Negura Bunget.
The Howling Void also comments: "The EP focuses on the mythic paradigm of Initiation in the Left Hand Path as represented by Woden/Wotan/Odin's journey into darkness in search of wisdom."
You can stream the EP over at Bandcamp or through the player below. A physical release is coming early summer 2013 on Solitude Productions. The track listing is as follows:
