The Void/Faith Split LP is a split album by Washington D.C. hardcore groups Void and The Faith, released on Dischord Records. Void was one of the earliest examples of hardcore/metal crossover and their chaotic musical approach here is often cited as particularly influential.[citation needed] Kurt Cobain listed it in his top fifty albums of all time.[2][3]

Packaging[edit]

The sleeve art for the LP (which dedicates one side to each of the bands on the original vinyl) is also rather iconic.[citation needed]
