Emptiness sign with Season Of Mist

Emptiness have a new home with Season of Mist. I interviewed the experimental Belgian death metal band (and I do mean experimental) awhile ago for their last monster Nothing But The Whole and can’t wait to hear what scary music they make next. Like Hypothermia .Swallowed, or Harmonic Cross, the dudes in Emptiness seem more about creating a total mindfuck of a bleak vibe rather than adhering to expectation. I admire that greatly and kudos to Season Of Mist for supporting real art like this.

Regarding the signing, EMPTINESS comment: “We are currently working on the follow-up to ‘Nothing But The Whole’, for which our aim is to release it in late 2016 on our new label Season of Mist. We also would like to thank Dark Descent for supporting us in our decision and for helping to spread the seeds of the void. Important news will follow in due time.”

Interview: Emptiness – To Traverse Bleakest Horizons

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 4:37 PM (PST)


The structures help building a feeling of life and comprehension, but the only objective is to eventually destroy each truth that we put in place. – Emptiness

As an artist or musician, nay, as a human being…you have to be able to adapt and adjust to different experiences. In the old Planescape Dungeons and Dragons multi planar adventure roleplaying setting, in the hub city of Sigil between all the worlds there was a faction called the Society of Sensation, (“Sensates”), who believe that accumulating experiental knowledge through the senses is the only way to achieve enlightenment. The faction is cool because they know better than to only dwel in experiences of pleasure, wallowing in ignorant bliss with no personal growth. Life is multi-faceted and some of that means disslusion or pain and suffering. While we don’t want to plunge into feeling these emotions or experiences, it is more well rounded to know how you suffice to survive and grow as a person when tested, unless you swing the other way and become a full blown masochist hiding in pain.

Brussels’ Emptiness (featuring members of Enthroned), have crafted a cold, off putting work of cultivated raw experience, an exploration of the extreme on an album called Nothing But The Whole . Like Enthroned, the group are bent on pushing themselves further down paths of desolation for the sake of “the way out is through”, harnessing shadows to grow and reign as fully realized humans. Preorder the Emptiness record HERE. Though the group have been active since 1998, this new record is sure to raise their profile. It is a solitary journey into realms of the Id that are often uncharted by weaker hearts.
