Void Moon was formed in early 2009 by bassist Peter Svensson and vocalist/guitarist Jonas Gustavsson along with drummer Thomas Hedlund. The first demo was released during the spring 2010, later released as a 4-track 7’’ EP entitled “Through the Gateway” 7” EP by the German label Metalbound Records. Following the release, Erika Wallberg joined the band as lead guitarist and in April 2011, a second demo was released, entitled “The Mourning Son”.
Void Moon draws inspiration from Black Sabbath, Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus and contemporary bands like Hammers of Misfortune and Grand Magus. The songs are written in the early doom vein and the lyrical themes surround Crowley’s teachings, horror stories, death and philosophy.
