Today Noisecreep hurls forth a very special stream in the form of Call of The Void’s battering rendition of “Headless/Heartless.” Originally released by crust legends His Hero Is Gone in 1997, Call of The Void’s version appears on the iTunes and BandCamp digital deluxe versions of the band’s recently released Dragged Down A Dead End Path full-length and features a guest appearance by Clinging To The Trees Of A Forrest/Primitive Man head instigator Ethan McCarthy.

Dragged Down A Dead End Path was recorded at the Boar’s Nest in Salt Lake City, Utah by Andy Patterson, mastered by Chris Mcnaughton and has been reaping critical accolades from fans and critics nationally since its release last month. Heralded for its “legitimate, misanthropic emotion,” by Popmatters, crowned “powerful, harsh crust grind at its fucking finest,” by American Aftermath and commended by Pitchfork for “proving that Denver is a hotbed of serious vitriol and passion,” Call of The Void’s feverish rash of grim, powerviolence-seared hardcore is difficult to dismiss. Notes Outburn in an 8/10 review of the record, “With a raw, messy sound drenched in over-amped guitars and driven by pure bile, they channel grindcore and Iron Monkey-esque sludgy unpleasantness and with each track – the longest topping out at 3:44 – they go off in a half dozen directions without ever losing their focus on destroying everything close by.” Adds Blabbermouth, “For all of their ferocious attack, Call of The Void can also rein in the madness, if it pleases them, for more dramatic and dynamic effect.”
In related news, Call of The Void was recently added to Scion Rock Fest 2013 set to take place in Memphis, Tennessee June 1st.
