Eye Of Solitude Posts Album Teaser

Eye Of Solitude, UK's orchestral funeral doom finest (featuring members of Unfathomable Ruination and Kaotoxin Records label-mates Sidious), which released its successful and critically-acclaimed second full-length "Sui Caedere" in June 2012 through Kaotoxin, has returned with a monolith of heaviness entitled "Canto III." A video teaser for "Canto III" has been posted below.

The album, lyrically-based on Dante's Inferno and featuring six tracks for a total duration of over 66 minutes, is by far the most intense and heavy, yet diverse material the band has ever released, topped by the inhuman low growls of EOS mastermind Daniel Neagoe and the contributions of violinist Casper and vocalist Anton, both from Russia's Dominia.

"Canto III is the most mature material we've worked on," comments Neagoe. "Its elements vary from pure agonizing and suffocatingly depressive moments, to a burst of rage and blast beats invoking quite a Black Metal environment. It's a development for sure due to the new line-up and its input on the songs and, with guests from Dominia -Anton on vocals and Casper on violin- we have included even more atmosphere and variety. It is for sure, our peak of creativity and musicianship!"

Coming as a limited edition (1,000 hand-numbered copies) double DigiFile CD, the first pressing features no less than six bonus tracks taken from the band's 2011 untitled promo (later digitally released by Kaotoxin as the "Awoken by Crows" EP) and "The Deceit" digital EP for a total of nearly 39 minutes of additional material.

With stunning artwork by Mortal Torment's own Giannis Nakos of Remedy Art (responsible for the "Sui Caedere" artwork), "Canto III" will be released on November 25th in France (Season Of Mist), UK (Code7) and through the label's mailorder for international territories and December 3rd in the BeNeLux (Rock Inc.), North America (MVD) and through all major digital retailers.

Pre-order opportunities, including exclusive merch packs, will start on October 28th. The US release will mark the first time ever that "Sui Caedere," re-pressed for this occasion, will hit North America retail stores and mail order distros.

Eye Of Solitude Premieres "Die Alone"

London based death/doom act Eye of Solitude recently signed on with Kaotoxin Records to release the new "Sui Caedere" album and follow-up to the previous full-length "The Ghost." In anticipation of the upcoming album, Eye of Solitude has now teamed up with Metalunderground.com to premiere a song online from the band's previously self-released and self-titled EP. Check out the "Die Alone" track in the player below.

"Sui Caedere" is set to drop this coming June, and music from that upcoming release will also see its premiere online through Metalunderground in the coming months.

The following press release was issued by Kaotoxin Records about Eye of Solitude's music:

"The Eye of Solitude is the heart of forests where unsettled spirits dwell. It is the fear within; the carnal ripping of every thought when abandoned in despair. It is nightmare and enlightenment, a fearsome tide that carries the soul and mind onto dark realms of insanity.

"The music is inspired by emotional distress, inner pain and a cruel combination of negativity and grief. Dark shapes that terrorize the soul and keep it captive on the altar of suffering, until when not being able to breathe any longer, it finds its end - a supreme escape towards peace and eternal rest.

"After 'The Ghost' debut album released in June 2011, and a self-titled EP, the band is currently working on thee second full-length, titled 'Sui Caedere,' which will be released in June 2012 through Kaotoxin records."

Eye of Solitude is:

Daniel Neagoe – Vocals (Unfathomable Ruination / The Departure)
Indee Rehal-Sagoo – Guitars
Tristan Jefferies – Guitars
Jamie Sweeney – Guitars (Trifixion)
Federico Benini – Bass (Trifixion / Unfathomable Ruination)
Ewan Ross – Drums (Trifixion)
