SOLACE OF REQUIEM
"CASTING RUIN"
VICISOLUM PRODUCTIONS

SOLACE OF REQUIEM had a difficult time getting started. This band from Virginia
Beach, Virginia started out under the name
SARCOPHAGUS in 1993. They were
together for a year then they broke up until 2001 when they reform under their new name
SOLACE OF REQUIEM. The technical Death Metal and Black Metal band doesn't
believe in god or the devil, they believe in science. With lyrical themes include science,
mysticism and religion. They signed to
VICISOLUM PRODUCTIONS which is a
Death Metal and Progressive Metal label from Sweden. The band released their debut
"SELF TITLED" full length in 2004, a follow up in 2006 "UTOPIA REBORN" and a
third full length in 2010 "THE GREAT AWAKENING" and the latest and possible the
greatest album "CASTING RUIN" in 2014. The band has an intensely brutal sound along
with a unique twist. The music has a technical composition, adding in with a technical
passage's classical movement. The music also has a vibe that brings sophistication to the
music. Dual guttural and screeching vocals brings another dimensions, heavy and catchy
riffs on guitar, and lightening fast drumming. If you pay close attention to their music I
think you would be impressed by the bands wide range technical skills. When you hear
this band you will not believe they're only a three piece. In the atmosphere of
BEHEMOTH, NILE & FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE.
