VoidWork was born in the dark months of 2008 with the purpose of creating a haunting musical atmosphere. The concept is inspired by early 20th century supernatural literature and more recent horror cinema. Xavier De Schuyter is a singer-songwriter (ex-Sworn Revenge, ex-Colcothar, ex-Herfst, ... who experimented with rock music and extreme metal for many years, before finally treading the dark ambient path.
In order to add a more diverse vocal sound, Ann-Mari Thim (Arcana, Veil of Blue, ...) joined Voidwork in the Spring of 2009. Her voice is only featured on one Asylum track, but will be prominently present on the next album.

Xavier sometimes works under the monikers Nihil, Herr Doctor or Void. Some of his other running projects include Machina Arcana (ambient doom/death metal), Akem Manah (horror/doom metal) and Museum (black/doom sludge noise).
