SEVENTH VOID, the band featuring TYPE O NEGATIVE guitarist Kenny Hickey and drummer Johnny Kelly, held a CD-release party for its debut album, "Heaven Is Gone", this past Tuesday (April 21) at The Clubhouse, the Dallas nightclub founded by HELLYEAH/ex-PANTERA drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott and his late brother, PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott.

"Heaven Is Gone" was released on April 21 via Vinnie Paul's Big Vin Records.
"We sent [Vinnie] one song," Hickey told DallasObserver.com, "and he really liked it. So we never really took it anywhere else. We wanted someone who believed in it. And Vinnie does."
"From the moment I first heard them, I full-on loved it," Vinnie said. "It's a new band, but when other people hear it, they'll know too. It's just an old-school sound with a new attitude. Something different than all the LINKIN PARKs and HOLLYWOOD UNDEADs out there right now."
Rounded out by bassist Hank Hell (INHUMAN) and guitarist Matt Brown (ex-SUPERMASSIV), SEVENTH VOID continues TYPE O's tradition of slow, heavy riffs and existential lyrics, but with a slightly sludgier, "stonier" flavor.
SEVENTH VOID will support STATIC-X on a number of shows in May.
"Heaven Is Gone", the new video from SEVENTH VOID, can be viewed at TuneLab Music.
