Church Of Void Signs With Svart Records To Release "Dead Rising"

Svart Records has confirmed the signing of southern Finland's Church of Void. The new wave of old-school doom, Church of Void will release debut album, "Dead Rising," on August 30th through Svart on both CD and LP formats. The first video from the forthcoming album, "Son of a Witch," can be viewed below.

Founded in 2010 by vocalist Magus Corvus, Church of Void's first sign of life was the limited-edition EP "Winter Is Coming." Now signed to Finland's eclectic music merchants Svart Records, this Finnish quintet is gearing up for a full album release. The label comments:

"Self-described as the new wave of classic doom metal, Church of Void wear their influences proudly on both sleeves and cites their sound as deeply affected by classics such as Saint Vitus, Black Sabbath, and Pentagram, but one can also hear overtones of Scandinavian downer rock in the vein of Mana Mana and Babylon Whores here and there. Thematically, Church of Void steer away from the popular 'occult' current and focuses on levels of the human condition instead."

"We write our material both as individuals and as a group," comments Corvus, "and most of it draws inspiration from archaic human instincts, needs, and emotions."
