VOID OBELISK stands for a bunch of four musicians coming out of completely different genres and musical socializations. Together they provide their listeners with a malstrom of many different styles, sounds and moods on a basis of heavy Doom Metal, raucous Noise Rock, viscous Sludge Metal and dark Drone Metal. Their mixture of nasty guitar riffs, passionate vocals, deep basses, reduced rhythms, analogue noises, floating Ambient passages, electronic beats and steely Industrial Metal creates an unique sound sphere consisting of torturous slowness, crushing harshness and disturbing ambience.
„A Journey Through The Twelve Hours Of The Night“ was recorded at the Tonmeisterei in Oldenburg, Germany, which is known for its excellent analogue and organic sound. The album title is inspired by the egyptian „Book of the Dead“, which deals with the journey of the dead through the twelve realms of the underworld, which are associated with the twelve hours of the night. VOID OBELISK put the journey of the dead into four chapters beginning with the descension into the darkest abysses of the egyptian mythology and ending with the bright and triumphant return of the reborn.
