“The power contained inside this record leaves an impact you can feel for days.” Meat Mead Metal
“Memento Mori hits like a sonic boom. It’s manic, seductive, and takes no prisoners.” Harbinger of Doom
“A beautifully evocative and diverse album.” Distorted Sound Magazine
HAIL THE VOID were handpicked by Ozzy Osbourne’s bassist Rob Blasko as part of his special collaboration with Ripple Music. Their new album and Ripple Music debut is even more ambitious than their critically acclaimed self-titled debut: evolving from a colossal and thunderous doom beast to a lysergic and spellbinding rock marvel, « Memento Mori » is a rich 8-track brimming with finely chiseled riffs, powerful build-ups and ardent vocals from frontman Kirin Gudmundson. « Memento Mori » will be released in various vinyl editions, CD and digital on February 17th on Ripple Music.
Emerging from the dense woodlands of British Columbia, Canada, HAIL THE VOID have made their presence known within the underground stoner metal scene in the form of their self-titled debut album, which reached #4 on the Doom Charts for June 2020, and won them the “Best Debut Album” Doomie Award at the first annual Doomed and Stoned Awards. The band consists of Kirin Gudmundson (Vocals/Guitar), Dean Gustin (Bass), and Curtis Bennet (Drums). All three members bring their own contributions and influences to the heavy psychedelic doom metal sound HAIL THE VOID is known for.
Ozzy Osbourne bassist Blasko, who signed the band to Ripple Music under his exclusive partnership with the label, comments: « Hail the Void released one of strongest debuts I have ever heard. The lead single ‘Parasite’ was one of my most listened-to songs of the year. I am beyond excited to work with these dudes on their sophomore release. Expect big moves from Hail the Void in the coming years! » « Memento Mori » will be released in various vinyl editions, CD and digital on February 17th, 2023. Artwork by Welder Wings.
