Full of Hell and Nothing: Like Stars In The Firmament

Experimental grindcore / post metal outfit Full Of Hell and shoegazers Nothing have unveiled another single off their highly anticipated collaborative album, When No Birds Sang, which will be released on December 1st, 2023 via Closed Casket Activities. The album is produced by the acclaimed producer Will Putney.

The record's second single is Like Stars in the Firmament. Nothing's Domenic Palermo describes: “Nothing put a foundation down on Like Stars In The Firmament, and Full of Hell put a house over it—and vice versa.”  

Full of Hell's Dylan Walker continues: "Like Stars in the Firmament is like a cooling and serene bath, a valley amongst peaks. It's a slow motion free-fall into oblivion and a fading cry at the end of the road. I think when we are faced with our own mortality and insignificance, we have to confront that oldest of fears and this song manifests that in a beautiful and sad way."

The video which accompanies the new song was once again created by Mike Martinez and Tyler Way, and correlates conceptually with the visuals from the first single, Spend the Grace.

The collaboration of the two groups premiered on stage in an exclusive appearance as Full Of Nothing at Roadburn 2022. Full Of Hell are also fresh from the release of another excellent collaboration, Suffocating Hallucination alongside Primitive Man.

I was super happy to be in a room and not just throwing shit back and forth online,” Domenic comments on the collaboration. “I have such a hard time when I’m not staring down the barrel of a gun. Being in a room with these guys brought everything into reality.”  

It’s way more productive,” Dylan continues. “This was the first time any of us had worked with Will. His resume speaks for itself, and he definitely added a great perspective. It’s an emotional record. Once we decided on the concept, we followed a similar approach. We’re bringing you to this edge of an empty void.

When you hear it, I hope you feel devastated emotionally,” Dylan concludes. “If we’re doing our job, it will freak you the f*ck out in the best way, because you’re staring at the precipice of oblivion with us.

“‘Devastation’ is a good reaction for me,” Domenic concurs. “From top-to-bottom, this record is highly comprehensive and super detailed. For me, the process itself was humbling. Every once in a while— with doing music for the better part of my life —experiences like this sometimes erase the imposter syndrome I feel playing music, and for a moment I forget how big of a loser I am.
