SOLIUM FATALIS
SOLIUM FATALIS

This act comes from New Hamphsire, USA, and plays Death Metal, the modern kind. Just to get some facts straight as for starters, the whole album was written within just 2 weeks, and released 10 months after. The line-up of SOLIUM FATALIS also features drummer Dirk Verbeuren who was working on SOILWORK's latest album "The Living Infinite" while working on SOLIUM FATALIS' debut self-titled record. Dirk has also worked with such artists as ANATOMY OF I, DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT, WARREL DANE, POWERMAD, etc. - just to name only a few, among several other acts and / or projects. What comes to SOLIUM FATALIS' music herein, which is the most important thing of course, it's a combination of modern Death Metal, Black Metal and bits and pieces of some FEAR FACTORY-tinged elements. The main emphasis is clearly on Death Metal - complex and of a technical kind - and in that retrospect, it's kinda amazing to think they haven't used more than those two weeks to write these 9 tracks for this album. I mean, the music flows very nicely on this record; having many tasteful and cool elements being involved with it. Intensity, brutality and technicality are some of the key elements here - and they are used well to make them match with each other such in a seamlessly way, giving the album certain coherency to stand out song wise. Pretty darn atmospheric and epic this stuff is too at times, occasionally managing to send a few shivers down my spine, which is always a good sign, I guess. I believe this record is something that most extreme Metal fans can appreciate; the fans of such names as BEHEMOTH, ORDER OF ENNEAD, VITAL REMAINS, etc. - you just don't want to miss this record. Oh, and when you are reading this, SOLIUM FATALIS have already finished their 2nd album, which I am looking forward to hearing as well. Interested in founding out more about them?
