The members of Void (also known as The Unsearchable Void) describe their music as a "chaotic mess" in which "there's no wrong answers". Since their beginnings as an industrial black metal project, their progressive mindset has become more apparent over the years - though there is still an undeniable black metal influence on their music.

I spoke with vocalist/guitarist Matt Jarman about why black metal's second wavers strove for individuality, and how ADD is a songwriting tool for Void. We also discussed how a night playing with Dødheimsgard led to the current Void line-up, and why creating the latest Void album Jadjow was so much fun.

My thanks again to Matt for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
