Void of Silence is a doom metal band from Italy, formed in 1999 by Riccardo Conforti and Ivan Zara. They combine the pace, distortion, and bass-heaviness of funeral doom metal with the grim atmosphere of dark ambient music.
They both come from different Italian underground worlds: Riccardo Conforti was the Oblivion's drummer and he is still the SYRION’s mind, Dark/Ambient project for which he make a name of himself during the period of 1998-1999 with the issue of two works and Ivan Zara was the Mystical Realms and Oblivion's guitar player. Toward the dusk is the first work as Void of Silence (after a mini CD never distributed for choice of the same members due to a wrong production), composed between November 1999 and June 2000 and in this period Malfeitor Fabban joined the band as vocalist.
From April 2001 Void of Silence are under Code666 label. Between August 2000 and November 2001 Void of Silence composed the second album called Criteria ov 666 out in February 2002 for Code666. After the split with old vocalist, Void of Silence recorded two new songs for Code666 compilation out in September 2002. In September 2002 Alan Averill (Primordial) joined the band as new vocalist.
On April 17, 2009, an announcement on the band's Myspace blog stated that Alan Nemtheanga had left the band due to his engagement to his other band, Primordial.
