Heavy metal trio HEAVENS DECAY finally released “The Great Void Of Mystery”, their first album. After a long and illustrious career in Death Metal as a guitarist Julio Viterbo (TORMENTOR, SHUB NIGGURATH, CENOTAPH & THE CHASM) decided to reconnect with the Heavy Metal that enveloped him as a youth and gave meaning to his life. The groundwork was laid in August 2013 when Viterbo participated in the recording of ACERUS debut album The Unreachable Salvation, a Heavy Metal album for which he composed half the songs. The work was a turning point in his career as a guitarist, allowing Viterbo to explore new sounds and expand his compositional scope.
The result was the launch of HEAVENS DECAY in 2015. After composing several songs, Viterbo invited Oscar Clorio (DAMNED CROSS, CENOTAPH, SHUB NIGGURATH, DENIAL) to join him on the journey as drummer, The pair then recruited Nick Hernandez (STONE MAGNUM) as vocalist. The songs were completed via the Internet, as Oscar lives in Mexico City, while Julio and Nick call Chicago home.
Finally in July 2016 HEAVENS DECAY recorded The Great Void Of Mystery in Chicago’s Minbal studios. The album was engineered by Matt Russell and mastered by Dan Swanö in Unisound studios in Sweden.
The album’s initial CD pressing comes in 12-page booklet with silver metallic ink for all texts, limited to 500 copies worldwide.
