THREE EYES OF THE VOID – “The Atheist” Ukrainian/Polish black metal band release their debut album

The band Three Eyes of the Void was originally a one-man studio project by Ukrainian musician Dmytro Kvashin. The debut EP entitled “The Moment of Storm” was recorded with the support of Alexander Ksiarum, who was responsible for the drums.

The material was produced by Oleg Olgerd Rubanov, a musician from the Ukrainian band Kroda, who has a successful history of working with 1914 in producing and mixing some of their releases. After the debut material, Dmytro started his first attempts to release a full album. Unfortunately, he soon abandoned work on the debut and abandoned the recording. The band’s inability to complete a live line-up led to Three Eyes of the Void disappearing into the shadows.

However, everything changed in 2021 when Dmytro visited Poland. In Gdańsk, he meets Arkadiusz Niziołek and Marcin Urban – former drummer and guitarist of Sacrilegium, a legend of black metal underground in Poland. In a short time, Jakub Milszewski, bass player of the groove/thrash metal band Perpetual, joined the band.With this line-up, Three Eyes of the Void return to the project of releasing a full-length debut.

Beginning in 2023, the band perform a premiere number that serves as a preview of their upcoming material. The composition “Against the One”, inspired by the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche, is composed against the background of the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian war. The track was presented via the Black Metal Promotion channel. The band begins to play more and more shows with Trauma and Gorycz, among others. In August, Three Eyes of the Void appear on the line-up of Germany’s Under The Black Sun festival, sharing the stage with bands such as Messiah, Urgehal, Nargaroth and Craft.
Meanwhile, the band appears on the cassette compilation Solid Rock in Hell Vol. I.
The start of their collaboration with SolidRock PR led to the signing of a contract with Folter Records (Nocturnal Breed, Sarkom, Urgehal, Odium Humani Generis).

On “The Atheist”, the band repeatedly explores related areas of metal music. Atmospheric black is often mixed with the space of progressive music and the overwhelming weight and darkness of post metal. All this is surrounded by a dark, gloomy and bitter atmosphere, which only feeds the vision of hopelessness and hopelessness of human existence. Three Eyes of the Void embarks on a journey to prove that coming to terms with one’s weaknesses may be the only way out for those seeking answers to the question: who am I and why am I?
