Technical death metal and ethereal soundscape dealers from Hungary – Beneath The Void – liberated a totally mind blowing debut album in the middle of the last year. I forwarded my questions to their guitar player Ákos Olt, who quickly sent back his answers. Now it's your turn to revise our talk-over!

Time is a thing we must accept.
The unexpected I sometimes fear.
Just when I feel there's no
excuse for what happens,
things fall into place.
I know there is no way to
avoid the pain that we must
go through, to find the other
half that is true.
Destiny is what we all seek.
Destiny was waiting for you and me.
I believe behind confusion,
awaits the truth for us.
Past the obstacles we face.
I value our life and trust.
Years of questioning why
things happen the way they do in life.
Wishing that I could turn back
time, so we could join our souls.

100% pure underground edition!
Extreme reading for extreme people!

You are diehard maniac entering these mazes of extremity
