Solace Of Requiem Signs Deal With ViciSolum Productions
Coming this August on ViciSolum Productions, Solace Of Requiem's fourth album, Casting Ruin, will be released! A very special "thank you" to Thomas Hörnkvist and ViciSolum Productions for giving us this opportunity. The album contains 9 tracks and will be available in digital formats, as well as on CD and Vinyl. Before its release, we will have a video made for one of the tracks. We will also be doing presales for the album, so stayed tuned for more info. Casting Ruin was recorded, mixed and mastered by Brian Elliot at Mana Studios in St. Petersberg, Florida, 2013.
"We are looking forward to releasing our new album and showing the world what can be done with music when one is not conformed to the status quo. Originality is our objective! And with our new music, no one will be able to deny that synopsis. You will never hear anything like this from another band. We do not create what has already been done. Although we are not the Omega... We are the Alpha! HAIL SCIENCE!" - Jeff Sumrell, Solace Of Requiem
Jeff Sumrell Takes Over Bass & Vocal Duties For RESURRECTION On Tour
(February 19th 2014)
Solace Of Requiem is happy to announce that SOR's own Jeff Sumrell will be taking over bass and vocal duties for Florida old school death metal legends, Resurrection, during their tour of Europe this March. In 2010, Jeff had taken over vocal duties for the band when their original singer, Paul Degolyer, had a family emergency and had to leave Europe unexpectedly at the beginning of the tour. The band had since acquired a new member, but things didn't work out between them and it ultimately left Resurrection without a bassist and singer for their upcoming tour dates in Europe. Jeff was contacted directly by the band and asked to fill the role. Jeff has agreed and so he will be hitting the road with the band in the next month. To see the tour dates click HERE
New Album, New Label, New Videos and Much More COMING SOON
(February 19th 2014)
A lot has happened since the new album was first recorded at Mana Studio last year! There are plans to shoot a new video for one of the songs, as well as create an album trailer. There are also some shows and tours being planned. And perhaps most importantly of all, there are plans to promote and release the album on a New Label!
That's right! We finally found a suitable label to release the new material! Obviously, we're very happy to have found a label that is as committed as we are to seeing this album do well. But the thing that we're most happy about, is no longer having to weed through all the bogus "labels" that wanted our album for absolutely nothing in return! We found a company that is an actual label, and not a wanna-be label, like it seems the industry is currently teaming with. This was no easy task! But, it's over now. And boy does it feel exhilarating!
Unfortunately, we can't go into too much detail about who it is and all that stuff. The contract is still pending and as the saying goes, anything can happen! So, for now, all we can say is that the album is scheduled to be released in late August 2014. So some really good things are going to start happening soon and we're excited as hell to tell you all about it once it's finalized.
The album promotion will start soon. So that means reviews, radio and all that stuff will be visible shortly. As well as a new video and an album trailer. We also have some show dates in the USA and in EU that will be posted soon. Rest assured, that as soon as we finalize a single aspect of this endeavor, it will be posted accordingly. In other words, a whole lot of posts are going to be made over the next few months. We will make each post in the same way we take our bong rips.... One at a time, brothers and sisters! One at a time!
