Topping the August Doom Charts, their fourth effort 'Rift' evokes the progressive and heavy tendencies of Mastodon and Torche, the psychedelic and soaring melodies of Pink Floyd, and rolling approach of Soundgarden. Swamp mud stuck to their feet as they trudge from South Central Louisiana, Forming the Void aren't afraid to slow things to a crawl.
Their otherworldly sound has earned them spots on large festivals such as Psycho Las Vegas, Denver's Electric Funeral Fest, EndHipEndIt, Stoner Daze and Stoner Jam at SXSW, and Descendants of Crom. Transcend through space and time with Forming the Void as they traverse the cosmic murk.
"Displaying an elaborate musical tapestry that swirls from devastatingly heavy riffs [...] Rift is very much an organic and elaborate offering from a band whose potential is fast becoming realized."
“Louisiana’s Forming the Void is one of stoner metal’s best-kept secrets […]Any self-respecting fan of stoner, sludge prog, or hell, even grunge, owes it to themselves to give this album a spin. ”
