Belgian dark metal outfit EMPTINESS is now releasing the video for their full live concert at the Roadburn Redux Festival, which took place in April 2021. The show can be watched in its entirety via the official Season of Mist YouTube channel.
|EMPTINESS performed to support the release of their latest album ‘Vide’. The new offering is completely produced by vocalist/bass player Jérémie Bézier, who is trying to create something authentic and avoid all external energies. The tracking mostly happened during the Belgian lockdown, in his apartment and rooftop 7th floor in Brussels.|
‘Vide’ (2021) was meant as a claustrophobic album, a journey of an infinite mind stuck into a world too small. Questioning the essence of one perception, this album invites you to rethink your grasp of reality. To that end, it was important for EMPTINESS to be isolated during its “experimentations”. Recordings would take place sometimes in confined spaces like apartments or a cabin in the woods, and sometimes on a city roof allowing to contemplate a strange human world from above. Involvement was strictly limited to the band members who took care of all audio production and visuals work. The pandemic and lockdown happened while recording was in progress; a materialization of the imaginary world being created. The album either by coincidence or not is in tune with our dissonant times.
