SEVENTH VOID, the new band featuring TYPE O NEGATIVE's guitarist and drummer KENNY HICKEY and JOHNNY KELLY have sent this update:
SEVENTH VOID — the new band featuring TYPE O NEGATIVE guitarist Kenny Hickey and drummer Johnny Kelly — has inked a deal with Napalm Records. The group's debut album, "Heaven Is Gone", will be made available in Europe at the end of November.

Commented Johnny Kelly: "It's been a long time coming! I'm thrilled that we are finally getting 'Heaven Is Gone' released everywhere! I'm looking forward to working with Napalm on this as well as the next SEVENTH VOID release in 2011! I'm even more stoked about the band finally doing a European tour! I'm really looking forward to the upcoming run with MONSTER MAGNET. It's gonna be a blast!"

"Heaven Is Gone" was released in the United States on April 21, 2009 via Vinnie Paul's (PANTERA, HELLYEAH) Big Vin Records. The CD sold around 1,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. It debuted at No. 21 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

"We sent [Vinnie] one song," Hickey told, "and he really liked it. So we never really took it anywhere else. We wanted someone who believed in it. And Vinnie does."

"From the moment I first heard them, I full-on loved it," Vinnie said. "It's a new band, but when other people hear it, they'll know too. It's just an old-school sound with a new attitude. Something different than all the LINKIN PARKs and HOLLYWOOD UNDEADs out there right now."

Rounded out by bassist Hank Hell (INHUMAN) and guitarist Matt Brown (ex-SUPERMASSIV), SEVENTH VOID continues TYPE O's tradition of slow, heavy riffs and existential lyrics, but with a slightly sludgier, "stonier" flavor.
