Today, eclectic Norwegian hard rock band WHITE VOID, centered around Lars Nedland (Borknagar, Solefald), is releasing a remix for another song from its much lauded debut album, Anti, which was released on March 12, 2021.
This time, WHITE VOID has teamed up with Greek avant-garde black metal band HAIL SPIRIT NOIR to bring you a synthwave remix of the single “There is No Freedom But The End.“
Take a seat in the DeLorean and journey through retro-futuristic polygon canyons & a nameless dystopian city dimly lit up in purple by the last dying rays of a menacing neon sun:

Lars Nedland comments:
“Some bands are just different, and Hail Spirit Noir are true pioneers, bound by nothing and no one in their approach to music.
There’s a divine touch to everything they do, and the way they have transformed “There is No Freedom but the End” into an eighties synthwave hit has ripped White Void’s musical universe a whole new dimension.
This is a song worthy of pink pastels, ozone killing hairspray and pixelated graphics. It makes me want to hijack the nearest Delorean and just drive, drive, drive!“
WHITE VOID are no strangers to electronic music or new wave. In case you missed Lars talking about some of his favourite records in his vinyl collection, check out the videos below:

WHITE VOID is absence of direction and sense in life. It’s a description of the fundamental disharmony between the individual’s search for meaning and the meaninglessness of the universe.
Eclectic hard rockers WHITE VOID are a curious bunch. Forged in the space between the occult rock of the seventies, the no-excuses-hard rock of the eighties and the British New Wave movement, they balance on the event horizon that separates old from new. Aggression from melody. Dream from drive.
Add to that the fact that the bandmembers of WHITE VOID have their backgrounds in Norwegian black metal, chiptune electronica, pop music and blues, and you’ll see why Anti is an album that’s hard to pin down. It’s darkly melodic, it’s driven, and it’s infused with earworms, hooks and licks. Boasting a shameless attitude, though, it comes forth as deeply true to the core of our shared hard rock heritage.
In the center of WHITE VOID stands Lars Are Nedland, long time member of BORKNAGAR and SOLEFALD. Leading a team of musicians including Tobias Solbakk of IHSAHN fame, electronica staple Vegard Kummen and blues rock virtuoso Eivind Marum, he navigates the waters of hard rock riffs, new wave harmonies and blues rock solos with determination and elegance.
Still, Anti probably doesn’t sound like you think. It’s an album riddled with contrasts and references, musically as well as philosophically. The concept is based on Albert Camus’ Absurdism and deals with how you cope with an existence that is in its core absurd. Musically it draws on the past while forging towards the future. And the result? Well, enter the Void to find out!
