Guitar Play-Through Video - Richard Gulczynski performs 'Heaving Bile And Ash'

Our neighborhood guitar wizard Richard Gulczynski recently uploaded a video of himself performing the madness of 'Heaving Bile And Ash'. He had originally planned on putting a few hundred clocks behind him, as well as a Mayan Calendar, some hourglasses and a bust of Chronos, but he thought that would make his video seem just as pointless as the last band's video was that used that tactic. Oh well... We can always imagine what it would look like to have the god of time staring at him while he played! We've also uploaded the guitar tablature for this song (Guitar Pro 5.2). So if anyone wants to give it a try, you can download the tabs from our homepage. We hate to state the obvious, but to prevent anyone's junk getting caught in a ceiling fan... Advanced Guitar Players Only! You can also download the audio (MP3 or WAV) for free on our Music and Tablature page. Good luck! And don't forget to turn off those ceiling fans!

The Confronting Entropy European Tour Is Over

Thank you to everyone that came out and supported us in Europe during the tour with Ulcerate and Wormed. A special thanks to all the bands, promoters and especially, the fans! We would also like to thank Luuk and DoomStar Booking, without whom, none of this would have been possible, as well as Kevin Heiderich, for playing second guitar for us again this year. We could have never done it without you all and we thank you! See you all again next year! \\m//

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!

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!
