“Ripple Music is ecstatic to be a part of this band’s impending rise to the top. Handpicked by Rob Blasko as part of his teaming up with Ripple, we want to welcome Hail The Void to the Ripple Family! With their upcoming sophomore album, »Memento Mori«, planned for a February 17th release, we are stoked to share the official music video for the first single – this is »High And Rising«.”
Hail The Void are a Canadian hard rock band forged in the flames of the coronavirus pandemic. The band came together to play original material in December 2019 with Kirin Gudmundson on guitar and vocals, Dean Gustin on bass and Lucas McKinnon on drums. Within a month, they had recorded their self-titled debut LP, which received critical acclaim and landed them consecutively at #4 on Doom Charts in June and #27 on Doom Charts for the best of 2020. Now they’ve signed with Ripple Music under the mentorship of the one and only Blasko.

The band’s sound fuses the psychedelic magic of acts like Pink Floyd and All Them Witches with the classic doom of Electric Wizard and Windhand. Their drop-tuned riffs provide the backdrop for themes exploring societal frustration, antitheism, nihilism and mental illness. Hail The Void’s self-stated goal is to make listeners realize that the true horror and doom of this world, consistently and without fail, comes from the primitive and instinctual mind of man, and his blind ignorance to the one true master towhom we all must submit, the void.
Hail The Void are gearing up for their next release, their debut with Ripple Music. Beyond that, they hope to finally play a live show together, while further advancing their sound in new and increasingly original directions. Will you join them as they preach the good word of the endless void? Or will you turn in fear? Whatever you do, just know that Hail The Void are only just beginning to spread their message of madness across the globe. Bow to the void or be left vanquished in its path.
