Upon the release of the first full length album "Entropic Reflections Continuum: Dimensional Unravel" it was instantly revealed that VOIDCEREMONY were treading a path few walk. The album proved that Death Metal can be performed with the gliding, controlled chaos and smooth fluidity of a jazz quartet, while still leaving the listener holed up in a dungeon, low on HP, out of spells, and surrounded by deadly demons.
"Threads of Unknowing" is a journey which resurrects concepts on earlier display and summons evermore progressive and technical compositions. Mastermind and guitarist/vocalist Garrett Johnson and guitar virtuoso Phil Tougas (Atramentus, Chthe’ilist, Worm, First Fragment) share both vocals and lead guitar duties here, while bass god Damon Good weaves both fretted and fretless bass mastery and drummer Charlie Koryn encompasses not only speed and brutality, but a fine mix of precision and improvisation from jazz fusion. The end result is VOIDCEREMONY and their signature sound: Time-melting Death Black Fusion.
With an apt cover painting representing the lyrical and philosophical vision of an ancient and forgotten future, VOIDCEREMONY itself seems to be operating on an alternate Death Metal timeline that once made itself known, but only briefly, and was soon left behind for more commercial appeal. Yet the portal has been re-opened and the merging of these boundless possibilities and directions are now being brought forth directly once again.
Recorded around the world from May 2022-October 2022 in Portland Oregon, Ramona California, Longueuil Quebec, and Adelaide, South Australia. Mixed/Mastered and reamped in Milan, Italy by Gabriele Gramaglia. Cover Artwork by Juanjo Castellano.
