"Forming the Void at The Spanish Moon"

As reviewed in KLSU 91.9 in Baton Rouge, “Lafayette-based rock band Forming the Void opened for Axes of Evil with a redone set of gut-wrenching soul-sucking lamentations. Front man James Marshall has an incredible voice that he reins in until the time comes to howl. Despite the emotional versatility of the music, the musicians did not emote during their songs. Instead, they focused on the technical aspect, the crisp sound, and thunderous rock.” - KLSU

"Unsigned and Unholy: Forming the Void"

When Forming the Void emailed us requesting MetalSucks “to shit upon [their] mediocre band,” Axl remarked thusly in a private aside to me: “It clearly wants to be Tool and the vocals are too yarler-ish, but it’s better than most of the crap people send us.” That’s overly reductive (what one sentence description of music isn’t?) but for the most part I concur. I’d add that the aesthetic is a bit more stoner-y and deliberately paced than Tool — see the fuzzed out guitars and psychedelia-inspired keys — and I really dig the decidedly un-Toolian guitar solo in “Three Eyed Gazelle.” Altogether it makes for a very enjoyable listen. Here’s new album Skyward: - MetalSucks


Still working on that hot first release.



FORMING THE VOID is a hard rock/metal band based out of Lafayette, LA. The band has been performing regularly since October of 2013 and released their self-titled debut album in July of 2014. Their unique blend of atmospheric and alternative rock with a metal influence places a heavy emphasis on layers and textures; often compared to Mastodon, Alice in Chains, Tool, and The Sword.
