We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Forming The Void’s new song “Bialozar” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Relic, which is scheduled to be released on March 17, 2017 through Argonauta Records.
Forming the Void guitarist/vocalist James Marshall comments on the new album: “We really found our stride with Relic. I think with this album it was important to showcase as much of our diversity of influences as we could while still staying under a fuzzy, progressive, atmospheric sound.”
Following the release of last year’s impressive Skyward album, Forming the Void, originally formed in 2013 in Lafayette, Louisiana, has gained an impressive reputation for raising underground rock into realms of the previously unknown.
Atmospheric, heavy and progressive yet losing none of these earnest qualities, they layer their ambitions as thickly as the riffs that help transmit their visions. Newly signed to Italian label Argonauta Records, this March will see the release of their third album Relic. Like Skyward before it, it draws on one hell of a colossal sound. New song “Bialozar” is the first track lifted from said album and, as you will hear, it’s carried along on lead singer James Marshall’s soaring, practically airborne vocal about an epic voyage of a celestial beast: “Valiant mantra in mind, Radiant alive in light” / “Wings spread over the mountain, ‘Bialozar.'”
Summoning the towering hard rock riffs and progressive influence of bands like Mastodon, Baroness and Torche, it’s just one of many songs on Relic that finds the four piece illustrating their bold and adventurous ideas in the most vivid of colours.
