Pull a chair up to the pummeling unveiling of Melbourne metalcore quartet Void Of Vision‘s new EP CHRONICLES II: HEAVEN, officially out today on UNFD.
Marking the aural apex of CHRONICLES II: HEAVEN, ‘ALTAR’ steadily worships unbridled lyrical exploration equally with loss, hope and gripping chaos as Bergin’s searing vocals elegantly intertwine with guest vocalist Greenwood; and it’s this enthralling contrast that is equally on full display via the brand new clip, directed in the UK by Zak Pinchin.
Bringing the rumination, rampage and raw charm on display across the space of five tracks to a riveting conclusion, ‘ALTAR’ may ultimately close the metaphorical door to CHRONICLES II: HEAVEN, but it also simultaneously and surreptitiously signposts an open-ended window to a boundless future in the Void Of Vision universe, as Bergin explains: “ALTAR serves as the ‘climax’, if you will, of the Chronicles series. It represents a stage where within loss, one’s world completely stops turning and life is left fleeting. I experienced a moment in time in said stage where I discovered that there are things death could never touch, and that love will always be impervious to its cold embrace.
“We really wanted the finale of this EP to leave our world that we’ve created extremely open to what could come next. I feel like we’re leaving our story teetering on the edge of either a rebirth harnessing new-found energy or a relapse into chaos and destruction.. potentially even somewhere in-between.”
