HEAVENS DECAY – “The Great Void of Mystery” will be released on December 12, 2016 trough Chaos Records. The music project is led by Julio Viterbo (TORMENTOR, SHUB NIGGURATH, CENOTAPH, THE CHASM) and are primarily NWOBHM-inspired Heavy Metal infused with the range of influences from Viterbo’s impressive career as a musician.
After a long and illustrious career in Death Metal as a guitarist in the aforementioned bands, Viterbo decided to reconnect with the Heavy Metal that enveloped him as a youth and gave meaning to his life. The groundwork was laid in August 2013 when Viterbo participated in the recording of ACERUS debut album The Unreachable Salvation, a Heavy Metal album for which he composed half the songs. The work was a turning point in his career as a guitarist, allowing Viterbo to explore new sounds and expand his compositional scope.
The result was the launch of HEAVENS DECAY in 2015. After composing several songs, Viterbo invited Oscar Clorio (DAMNED CROSS, CENOTAPH, SHUB NIGGURATH, DENIAL) to join him on the journey as drummer, The pair then recruited Nick Hernandez (STONE MAGNUM) as vocalist. The songs were completed via the Internet, as Oscar lives in Mexico City, while Julio and Nick call Chicago home.
Finally in July 2016 HEAVENS DECAY recorded “The Great Void Of Mystery” in Chicago’s Minbal studios. The album was engineered by Matt Russell and mastered by Dan Swanö in Unisound studios in Sweden. Chaos Records will release the album on CD and digital formats. The band is already working on new material for the next installment of Heavy Metal Fury.
