2014's ‘VOIDHEAD’ is a 10 track album featured co-founding Marilyn Manson guitarist Daisy Berkowitz. This debut album cast Symbol as an electro-industrial S&M rocker. Dubbing himself the "King of Negativity", Symbol built a devoted cult following with several national tours supporting artists such as Mushroomhead, William Control, the Bunny the Bear, and Blood on the Dance Floor.
2017's ‘Fuckboi EP’ saw a shift in style as Symbol began to explore hip hop, introducing beats and rapping into his repertoire. The lyrical focus shifted from nihilistic subject matter to include romantic and sexual themes. This EP was well received by fans for highlighting artistic versatility, earning comparisons to the late David Bowie.It includes dark covers of Pop icons such as Prince and Taylor Swift.
