Noise-laden dark ambient project SUPERVØID (with Eraldo Bernocchi, Xabier Iriondo, Jacopo Pierazzuoli and Jo Quail) will release their mind-boggling debut album The Giant Nothing this May 7th on Subsound Records, and unveil a first single entitled “The Acceleration of the Universe“. Listen to the track here.
SUPERVØID is an instrumental three-piece formed by legendary producer and experimental guitarist Eraldo Bernocchi (Sigillum-S, Obake), multifaceted guitarist Xabier Iriondo (Tasaday, A Short Apnea, Buñuel), drummer Jacopo Pierazzuoli (Morkobot, Obake), also involving avant/classic cellist Jo Quail. The cello stands as a “voice-non-voice”, laying captivating melodies and harmonic movements into the nothingness of the giant nothing, while the absence of bass player is highly compensated by Bernocchi’s sub frequencies-laden riffing.
Produced by the band and mixed by Eraldo Bernocchi, SUPERVØID‘s debut album ‘The Giant Nothing’ is an emotional rollercoaster ranging from massive-sounding tracks that echo to the heavy music roots of its makers, to more ambient and soundtrack-oriented parts where baritone guitars and cello intertwine with noisy interventions and spacious percussions. Delivering huge impact in terms of emotions and energy, their music combines heavy riffs with cinematic atmospheres, ambient washes with gigantic barytone guitars, classical strings sections looped in real time with walls of noise, all juxtaposed to create an organic contrast. The Giant Nothing will be issued worldwide on limited edition 12” vinyl and digital through Subsound Records.
Supervøid: an empty section of space defined by the lack of superclusters. In this particular case, this empty section of space is missing an estimated 10,000 galaxies. Scientists suspect that it may be draining energy from light travelling through. Getting through such a big chasm takes hundreds of millions of years. The travel has begun.
