Horváth and Köhnen joined forces through their passion for all things doom, presenting their personal take on the doom genre in all its beautiful darkness and from all possible angles. Bringing their own mix of atmospheric, gothic laden doom metal.
After their immensely well received debut album »Forlorn«, The Answer Lies In The Black Void will be returning with their second album in the fall of 2023. »Thou Shalt«, inspired by Carl Jung’s shadow work will be released on Burning World Records, mixed and mastered by James Plotkin.
As part of the release of the second album, The Answer Lies In The Black Void will be performing live for the first time as a 5 piece, with Botond Fogl (guitar), Attila Kovacs (guitar) and Mark Potkovacz (drums) part of the full line-up.
