Forming The Void Relic Review



When
Lafayette, Louisiana architects of groove
Forming The Void released their debut album ”
Skyward” in 2015 it was wondered if the band may have raised the bar too high, such was the magnitude of their heavy sludged slightly prog-ish , stoner doom refrains it was hard to see how they could possibly follow up something so intense and powerfull!

Thankfully these reservations have proven to be unfounded as just one listen to the bands brand new album ”
Relic” (
Argonauta Records) will bear witness.

Forming The Void have taken things to the next level with their new album “
Relic” filling every nook and cranny of its eight songs with a dark, and at times mouth dropping. array of deliciously dank lysergic groove all furnished in swathes of slow, low distorted guitar riffage, brutal thrumming bass and earthshaking percussion. Over this humungous tsunami of raw progressive tinted stoner metal are floated powerful cryptic and mystical lyrics sang with strength and passion, slightly monotone but clean, and delivered with a power to match the tumultuous heavy grooves surrounding them. Songs like ”
Bialozar“, ”
Plumes” and title track ”
Relic” are filled with swathes upon swathes of swirling atmospheric texture and colouring these elements combing with the heavy metallic grooves and lyrical content to take listeners on heady psychedelic tours through smoke filled landscapes populated by mystical creatures spreading leathery wings over towering stone mountainsAll this and an absolutely barnstorming version of
Led Zeppelin’s
Kashmir”, what more could a discerning stoner doom fan possibly ask for.
