Predatory Void have just released A Portrait, a short, but intimate documentary by Diana Lungu about the people and the dynamics in the band. The band released their debut album, Seven Keys to the Discomfort of Being, in April of this year.
Predatory Void came to be when guitarist Lennart Bossu (Amenra, Oathbreaker) found himself writing material that wasn’t really suited for Amenra. Lennart gathered a group of like-minded people living in the area of Ghent, Belgium, including vocalist and tattoo artist Lina R, Tim De Gieter (bass; Amenra, Doodseskader, Much Luv Studio), Thijs De Cloedt (guitar; Cobra The Impaler), and Vincent Verstrepen (drums; Carnation).
Lennart Lennart Bossu (guitar) shares:
Predatory Void feels like something totally new, it‘s like learning to walk again and of course there‘s ups and downs. It’s important for people to realize that we‘re really just a group of individuals who have the irresistible urge to play music, and that we‘ll inevitably fuck up now and then, but that‘s how it is.
Lina R. (vocals) adds:
Making music with Lennart, Thijs, Tim and Vincent had really taught me to focus and let go in equal parts. To appreciate being pushed to do things you’d normally be afraid of doing – just because someone else believes in your ability.
