Big Vin Records To Release Seventh Void Debut

Seventh Void, the new band formed by Type O Negative guitarist Kenny Hickey and drummer Johnny Kelly, will release its debut album, "Heaven Is Gone," 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," Abbott recently said. "I mixed the whole thing for the guys. It goes somehere [sic] 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 Abbott and his late brother, Pantera guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott on the day of release.
