What are our thoughts about "The Audient Void"?
As we've said many times before, we're not usually big fans of instrumental groups, mostly because we enjoy singing along with the music & hearing the piercing screams of the vocalist.
However, Beneath A Steel Sky are a group that will help you appreciate instrumental music. Listening through their debut single has surprised us & we can only but imagine what kind of visuals that they'd have going on in the background which will help create the atmosphere & vision that they're aiming for.
Although, I do have to say, this track I can certainly imagine the likes of Maynard James Keenan from Tool & A Perfect Circle, or even Daniel Gildenlow from Pain of Salvation putting some awesome vocals over the top of this track.
Nonetheless, as we said before, Beneath A Steel Sky will help you appreciate instrumental music, and you heard the hard work that went into creating this single and the talent that was required to create it. Especially since it was created through remote recordings & mixing.
