Koen B. : Solace Of Requiem … it has been a while since we heard from them. Their previous effort ‘The Great Awakening’ (2010) was prettty good, but I think ‘Casting Ruin’ will definitely be their breakthrough album. Solace Of Requiem has matured in many ways. They finally found a decent label in The Swedish ViciSolum Productions (Diabolical, Loch Vostok, Exeloume), they have a new logo, a new guitarist and most important: their music is killer!
Nowadays Solace Of Requiem plays deathened black metal which could be summarized as “epic fucking brutality”. The songwriting as well as the performance are very high levelled. This band has a unique style which consists of technical death / black metal parts and high speed blasting bass drums and a singer that constantly barks at the moon. Kinda like Hate Eternal but with more black metal influences to give you an idea of what Solace Of Requiem sounds like.
The band will on a European tour in November / December supporting Ulcerate and Wormed so be sure to catch ‘em by then. For tour dates check the bands Facebook or home pages.
