Solace Of Requiem Signs Contract With EXTREME MANAGEMENT GROUP

We’re being compared to Origin a lot. Necrophagist is a name that pops up a lot, too. But the neoclassical composition and the binaural element are causing the media not to know who the hell to compare us to! There’s e-dope in our music for fuck’s sake! So we need someone who can make some sense out of all the chaos and put a proper description on our new brand of devastation, so it can be properly brought to the masses. This is no small task! Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, which meant we had to find a successful company that would take on a promising, albeit, a very small band. So, it is with great pleasure that we announce Extreme Management Group as our new management team. We are very excited about our future with EMG and we’ll be making more news announcements involving them very soon. Check back for upcoming announcements.

Kevin Heiderich Returns To Second Guitar Duties For Upcoming Tour

SOR is happy to welcome back Kevin Heiderich on second guitar for our upcoming tour with Ulcerate and Wormed. Kevin was with us last year and is very familiar with us and the music. Which is why we are so shocked that he actually wants to come back and endure the trials and tribulations of another SOR tour! Probably because of all those coffee shops he goes to in the Netherlands?! That guy sure loves Dutch coffee!

Ulcerate, Wormed, Solace Of Requiem and Gigan, European Tour 2014

Solace Of Requiem will be touring Europe in November and December with Ulcerate, Wormed, Gigan and one support band TBA. A big thank you to The Flaming Arts Agency and Doomstar Bookings for their part in having us participate! We will also be touring as headliner on a smaller tour in Eastern Europe around this same time. More details on that are coming soon!

Solace Of Requiem Signs Deal With The Flaming Arts Agency

Solace Of Requiem is pleased to announce that The Flaming Arts Agency will now be representing the band as their booking and management company. We are all expecting great things from the new album (Casting Ruin), that has been slated for release this August. And now, with the help of TFA, things are looking better than ever!

Be on the lookout for tour announcements, various promotional endeavors, as well as new audio and video media, as we get set to kick this whole thing off. We hope you're all ready for the onslaught?! SOR would like to sincerely thank Jon Knight for believing in them and giving them this opportunity!

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

New Album, New Label, New Videos and Much More COMING SOON

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!
