Classically Composed / Brutally Rendered… Casting Ruin will prove to be a benchmark in brutal, atmospheric and technical song writing. Incorporating the study of binaural audio into their already complex structures, Solace of Requiem has used this knowledge to facilitate the unorthodox poly-rhythms and complex writing style found in their latest work. If you were to hard-pan your speakers left, and then right, you would practically hear two separate songs. Combining these two songs creates the illusion of a third (main) song. This is the technique from which Solace of Requiem has created it’s original sound, unique to any known genre of death metal or black metal.
ViciSolum Productions has announced the August 29 worldwide release of Casting Ruin.
The fourth release from this criminally under-recognized Technical Blackened Death Metal trio, Casting Ruin is without a doubt the band’s finest hour. These nine highly evolved, yet relentlessly violent tracks are as listenable as they are devastating. ChroniclesOfChaos.com called Casting Ruin “one mean, complex, stupefying and brutal motherfucker,” but words alone cannot describe this contender for 2014’s most metal album. Check out album tracks “Soiling the Fields of Putridity” and “Heaving Bile and Ash” at ViciSolum’s bandcamp page.
Pre-orders for Casting Ruin on digital or CD formats are now available at the above link. Digital pre-orders come with a free download of the band’s 2010 release The Great Awakening.
