Album Review – Void Of Vision – Chronicles III: Underworld

Artist: Void Of Vision
Title: Chronicles III – Underworld
Release Date: November 11th 2022
Label: UNFD
Reviewer: Andrew Treadwell

Approaching a decade into their career Melbourne Metalcore band Void Of Vision return with their newest offering Chronicles III: Underworld.

The band first hit our radar on the Full Tilt Festival and we immediately realised what we have been missing. This album showcases a darkness and weight to the music that is a small left turn for the band and the 3 songs on this album complete the trilogy of the Chronicles series which makes you feel like you are being pushed off a cliff into hell itself

“HELL HELL HELL”, s powerful opener which sees Jack sing almost about his demise as watched through the pleasure in someone else eyes as they watch the fall into the abyss

“ASMR” .
The Meaning: ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response )signifies the subjective experience of “low-grade euphoria” characterized by “a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin.” It is most commonly triggered by specific auditory or visual stimuli, and less commonly by intentional attention control. The song is certainly a visual trip with a great mix of electronica, and a desperate story to tell, once again about someone’s demise at the hands of another

“NEUE SICHT” The Meaning: New Perspective, for me this is almost like the person that has gone into hell has become the devil themselves and the new perspective is them as they move onto the next life, next mission, next bunch of feelings. The over whelming sense of helpless and pain makes you wonder what was going on for this song to come to life. Its like the death of the old Jack to bring this new dark Jack to life.

There is no doubt in my mind Void Of Vision are not your average band. This isn’t just screaming over heavy music. This is layers of emotion both musically, lyrically and emotionally. Probably the scariest roller coaster that comes to an end way too soon, and leaves you wondering, where do we go next, after Hell?
