"At the heart of it, this record is who we are. Jason and I have been through some pretty trying times in the last couple of years and managed to rise above it all", says guitar player Tommy Miller. "I wouldn't go so far to call this a concept record, but there is a theme running through the entire thing."
Barren Dominion was recorded with Bloomington, IN artist Niko Albanese, and mastered by Dennis Pleckham of Comatose studios and guitarist for the band BONGRIPPER. "We needed people working on this record that understood not just the sound that we were going for, but also the vibe that we wanted to hit. Dennis and Niko really hit that perfectly on both fronts", says drummer of VOID KING, Derek Felix. "We talked a lot about making sure that this record was massive. Between recording the drums in an empty warehouse and having the guitar player from BONGRIPPER master the record, I would say that this album is exactly what we were looking for."
"Void King not only expands their sonic palette but also offers a certain emotional maturity on Barren Dominion. The progressive tinges also suggest broader influences coming into play that I can imagine appealing to listeners beyond the stoner doom circles."
