'The Great Awakening' Album

"SOR's third full length album produced by the great Andy Classen (Krisiun, Belphegor, Rotting Christ and many more..) at Stage One Studio in Germany. Solace of Requiem has teamed up with producer Andy Classen to usher in a new era of Death Metal. While others in the genre have strived to become more technical on their instruments, SOR has strived to become more technical with their song writing. There is no doubt that musicians should be good on their instruments but the technical aspects of music should not be limited to the instrumentation alone. Solace of Requiem has created a sound that is not only instrumentally technical but is also technical in structure. The main focus for SOR is to properly orchestrate the emotions between lyrics and music, while maintaining a high level of technicality in instrumentation and composition. The band has blended together Death Metal, Black Metal, Doom, Thrash, Jazz, Rock and many other forms of music to create an extremely diverse sound that makes SOR unique."
