Between the Void


Between the Void are a four piece alt rock band formed in 2013 in Bournemouth on the south coast of the UK. They come from a diverse set of musical backgrounds and the tastes of each member help to create a unique sound. Their aim is to blend their favourite elements of metal, funk, blues rock, grunge, punk, dubstep and post-hardcore in to make the kind of music that they would want to listen to.
John Eales (vocals/guitar) and Oli Frame (Lead Guitar) are long standing friends and were in a band together before Oli moved to London and then to Tanzania to live and work. On his return they hatched a plan to form a new band, the name to be decided, with the aim of making song driven alt-rock that also took account of their other influences. Pippa Gillingham was next to join. Her life in academia (ask her anything about beetles!) had moved her all around the UK, from Hampshire, to Oxford, to York and finally to Bournemouth. Her musical life had seen her playing across genres from world music, drum and bass to rock, funk and metal when she turned up in Bournemouth looking for a new musical project. After a few failed auditions and false starts, Marc Canning finally showed up to complete the band and Between the Void were formed. The debut album, written and recorded in 2014, was released in August 2015.

"Between the Void is an aural assault on the senses. With a rhythm section that hits hard (courtesy of Marc Canning’s powerful drumming and Pippa Gillingham’s nimble bass work) Between the Void creates a sound felt as much as heard. Adding to this all-engrossing sound is the righteous fury of the guitar work made possible by Oli Frame. Above all this chaos are the vocals of John Eales. Between the Void refuse to let up as the energy persists for the entirety of the album with nary a single break. At times their dense all-encompassing sound is reminiscent of Superunknown-era Soundgarden as their attention to detail is incredible with every sound honed to perfection. 
After a short “Intro” they dive into the thick of things with “Forget to Live” a song that demands to be played as loud as possible. Stunning in execution is the rush of “Relax”. From the insistent rhythm to the nimble guitar playing, everything simply works. Towards the end the guitar positively destroys showing off Oli Frame’s impressive commanding chops. Veering between the gentle and the overwhelming is the beautiful “Gone”. Tribal in delivery is the percussion-led heavy work of “Recover”. Ending things on a strong note is the blistering work of “Innuendo” whose riffs and rhythm are giant waves of sound. 
Between the Void have created a incredible album one that requires total surrender. It is the answer to so much watered-down rock. On Between the Void nothing is watered down everything is raw, like good rock should be."
