Seventh Void was a doom metal band composed of Type O Negative members Kenny Hickey and Johnny Kelly; Matt Brown of the 90's Industrial band Uranium 235 and Doom Metal band A Pale Horse Named Death; as well as Hank Hell of Inhuman. Originally conceived in 2003 by Kenny and Johnny, the band's personnel was not solidified until 2005 and songwriting began in earnest. The band's name is lifted from a line in Dante's Inferno. Their debut album, Heaven Is Gone, was released in April 2009 in North America on Vinnie Paul's record label, Big Vin Records, and in November 2010 in Europe and the UK on Napalm Records. The CD was made available with brand new cover artwork. Matt Brown left the band in October, 2011, for reasons unknown. The band has yet to replace the former guitarist.

On 10 July 2013 via Twitter - Working on new music! Next record is gonna be killer! [1] While nothing substantial was heard from the band during the interim, on 1 March 2015 via Twitter, the band indicated that many songs had been written, and the album was nearer to completion.[2]

When asked about the new album's progress, during an interview with Metalireland, Johnny Kelly reported that it had indeed been written and speculated that it would likely see a released in late-2017 or 2018. He confirmed ex-Agnostic Front member Joseph James as the replacement guitarist and stated that the band had also recruited a keyboardist, suggesting a return to sounds reminiscent of his and Hickey's previous band, Type O Negative. Because of this discernible change in the band's sound, Kelly also stated that it would likely prompt a name change for the band, though the members were currently undecided. In 2017, it was announced the band ended, and the members started a new project called Silvertomb.[3]
