Additional notes
Formed in mid-2010, Void of Kings performed sold-out shows with Periphery and played on the main stage at Scream the Prayer Tour in 2012. They were also featured on the Maryland date of the Thrash and Burn tour in 2011 with Winds of Plague. Void of Kings’ released their first EP “If Ever Hades Spoke” in June 2011, featuring progressive metal elements blended with the intensity of hardcore. Following its release, “If Ever Hades Spoke” has earned favorable reviews, marking them as a band to “definitely watch out for.”

Void of Kings released two singles: “Conviction” and “Pathways.” A couple months later, they independently filmed and released the “Pathways” music video.

Void of Kings’ debut full-length album, "Stand Against The Storm" was released on December 16, 2014. The album was recorded with Will Beasley (Emarosa, Handguns) at Salad Days Studio (Darkest Hour, Senses Fail, Sky Eats Airplane, Converge, Thrice). In reviews, “Stand Against The Storm” was called “…an impressive debut” and “addicting.” “…Their music and message will spread through the metal environment, catalyzing change and positivity in a scene that sorely needs it.”

The band released a music video for “Foreverwar,” the first single off the album. The song has been called “a mission statement as much as a song,” which includes “punishing rhythms and crunchy guitar solos.” Reviewers went on to say, “This is high-minded hardcore from a band with serious potential.”

With high-energy live performances and a strong do-it-yourself ethic, the band quickly garnered a regional following. After their album release party, due to the departure of their drummer, the group disbanded in the summer of 2014.
