Prog-Metallers FORMING THE VOID new album ‘Rift’ lands # 1 on the August 2018 Doom Charts

“It’s clear the fans and critics hear something special, and seeing them live in Vegas plus meeting and hanging out with the dudes it’s clear they are on the right path.” -DOOM CHARTS

“Displaying an elaborate musical tapestry that swirls from devastatingly heavy riffs […] Rift is very much an organic and elaborate offering from a band whose potential is fast becoming realized.” -METAL HAMMER

“Their fourth album Rift is epic in scale, replete with windswept hooks and skyscraping vocals, but it also delivers heavy metal thunder in abundance […] It’s immense – and immensely satisfying.” -THE WIRE

“Forming The Void are set to crush all-comers with this follow up to their much lauded third album Relic.” -CLASSIC ROCK (UK)

“Turns out that there’s room for a little more worship of The Good Riff after all. Of course, by “a little bit more” I really “packed full” of The Good Riff, as Rift takes no shortcuts in terms of hooking the listener in with them.” -ANGRY METAL GUY

“Louisiana’s Forming the Void is one of stoner metal’s best-kept secrets […]Any self-respecting fan of stoner, sludge prog, or hell, even grunge, owes it to themselves to give this album a spin. ” -METAL INJECTION

“Melding their influences, which range from Mastodon and The Sword, to Soundgarden and YOB, Forming The Void’s riffs summon a sense of adventure.” -CVLT NATION
