by Internal Void

Stunningly dynamic, the album shifted seamlessly from blues-laden, heavy progressive patterns to powerful sledgehammer riffing. Superbly crafted doom-tinged heavy rock from one of Maryland's premier bands.

Album Notes
Internal Void came together in 1987 soon after Kelly Carmichael, Eric Little and Adam Heinzmann attended a Saint Vitus concert. The band later recruited J.D. Williams as a vocalist and put out two demo recordings in the late 80s/early 90s (Voyage and Smokestack). Hellhound Records picked them up in the early 90s along with several other Maryland doom bands (The Obsessed, Wretched, Unorthodox, Iron Man, Revelation). They had two songs featured on the Hellhound sampler What the Hell! in 1991. In 1993 they released their debut album, Standing on the Sun. This would prompt a nationwide tour with label-mates Saint Vitus. Not much was heard from the band after Hellhound's demise until 2000, when Southern Lord Records released the band's second album, Unearthed, and a split single with Italian doom artist Paul Chain. By this time original drummer Eric Little had been replaced with former Unorthodox drummer Ronnie Kalimon. Kalimon would later be replaced by doom veteran Mike Smail (Cathedral, Dream Death, Penance) and in 2004 the band self-released their latest album, Matricide. Internal Void have appeared on numerous tribute albums, included albums dedicated Saint Vitus, Blue Cheer, and Italy's Death SS.
In 2004 Internal Void released their 3rd full length Matricide on Dogstreet Records to rave reviews.



to write a review


Classic Doom with Blue Cheer influences !!
It 'really a pleasant return of the Internal Void !! The last sign of life from the Maryland doom band dated 2000, year of release of "Unearthed". The work with Pentagram seems to have given a blow to the Internal Void songwriting, in fact if already in "Unearthed" could be seen flavors of 70's, the new work explores even deeper into this matrix with acid plots of hard psychedelic rock . Not that the doom is cast aside, indeed, but it seems that the passion of Bobby Liebling to the sound of Blue Cheer has infected the same Carmichael leader of Internal Void.
This side is evident in songs like "Family Under", the wonderful "Next Time 'Round" (with a creepy interlude) and "Heroes, Enemies and Earth "; all episodes that show a spirit of improvisation and the desire to immerse the compositions in the visionary spirit of the 70. Obviously there are examples of acid doom where the guitars rule: the beautiful "World of Doubt , the long, intricate and monolithic" What the King Bought " and "All Smoke and Mirrors" where IV sound like Obsessed with Bobby Liebling on vocals, thanks to vocal versatility of JD Williams. "Window To Hell" is a true doom song with evocative atmosphere.
More really can not ask, "Matricide" is a true and genuine disc. A sign that times and fashions change but the real music is always the same !!
