Iron Void was originally formed by Jonathan ‘Sealey’ Seale & Andy Whittaker (Solstice, The Lamp of Thoth) in 1998 in order to create an old-school Doom Metal band, worshipping at the altar of Doom legends such as Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus, Pentagram, etc.
Vocalist & Bass player Sealey decided to resurrected the band in 2008 with Steve Wilson on Guitars & Vocals & Damien Park on Drums.
To date, Iron Void have released a live demo, Live 2008 (2008) and an EP, Spell Of Ruin (Doomanoid Records, 2010). This was re-released in 2012 and features an expanded CD edition with 2 bonus tracks along with additional photos. Their Self-Titled debut album was recorded in 2013 with engineer / producer Matt Richardson and was released in June 2014 via Barbarian Wrath Records.
Live highlights for Iron Void have included a triumphant performance at Malta Doom Metal Festival 2012, tours with Nomad Son, The Prophecy & Mortalicum and numerous shows with the likes of Pagan Altar, Lord Vicar, Witchsorrow, Solstice, The Lamp of Thoth, Leather Nun America, Iron Hearse, Misty Morning, Dark Forest, Asomvel and many more.
