Thy Emptiness (Washington state)
Thy Emptiness is melancholic gothic death doom from the town of Battle Ground in the state of Washington, U.S. Thy Emptiness is comprised of OldNick and The Witcher, who are both known for the black metal band Ceremonial Castings.
Ceremonial Castings was active from 1996 to 2014, and if you look it up on Metal Archives you will find an extensive discography that is worth investigating. The albums often receive very positive reviews. Unfortunately, Ceremonial Castings has disbanded (for now?).
Meanwhile, Thy Emptiness is a different sound altogether. It is doom, but it’s traditional doom in the classic style of old Paradise Lost or old Katatonia and that type of bands.
