Solace Of Requiem Streaming Video

Technical blackened death metal trio Solace Of Requiem has released the official music video for "Soiling the Fields of Putridity." Taken off the band's newest album "Casting Ruin," the song and video both address religion's choke hold on science. Stream the censored version below. The band comments:

"This video was entirely self-made on a very small budget. We hope you enjoy what we have created.... The men in gas masks represent the pioneers of science, technology, hard work and progress. They also represent the many martyrs of science that have sacrificed so much in the name of logic and reason.

The shrouded figure represents organized religion and its paralyzing veil of ignorance, apathy and segregation. The Slave Girls represent the innocent victims that are born into a society that has enslaved them without their consent nor their knowledge.

The Slave Master represents the false prophets and self-proclaimed deities that have used their dogma to advocate oppression and barbaric behavior. The landscapes represent the common reality we all share with each of the groups represented within them. In essence, the landscapes offer an insight into the true reality, which is ultimately left unchanged."

Solace Of Requiem Working On New Album

Solace of Requiem has issued the following update about gearing up to record a fourth album featuring a new band logo and stylistic direction:

"In 2012 Solace of Requiem has concentrated solely on writing new music and preparing to record a new album. While writing the new material the band realized that they had finally discovered the perfect musical direction they wanted to follow. The new album will be the first album that the band feels is the proper evolution of SOR's brand of blackened death metal.

"So because of this reason, Solace of Requiem has decided to treat the first three releases as if they were only practice for the band's fourth album. SOR will therefor release their fourth and most brutal album with a new band logo (coming soon). More...

Solace Of Requiem Comments On Upcoming Shows

Solace of Requiem has checked in with the following update about canceling upcoming shows and announcing new tour dates with Vomitory:

"Change Of Plans! Many SOR fans have been waiting patiently for the SOR In EU Tour schedule (parts 1 & 2) to be released. Well, we've got some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that the 'Part 2' portion of the tour scheduled with Mor Dagor will have to be cancelled.

"It always sucks to have to cancel shows when so many people have worked hard to arrange them. But SOR had a late opportunity to get on a bigger billing and that opportunity was just too good to pass-up. Which brings us to the good news...

"Solace of Requiem will instead be touring Europe (from October 28th until approximately November 20th) with Vomitory and Prostitute Disfigurement. At this time the show schedule has not been released, nor has the artwork/promotion. But as soon as it is, we will have it posted here for all to see. The 'Part 1' portion of the tour scheduled with Disbelief and Xiom has NOT yet been canceled. If possible, SOR will play Part 1 of the original tour as well as the tour with Vomitory and Prostitute Disfigurement.

"Sorry to all of the promoters, clubs, bands and fans that might be disappointed in SOR's cancelling. Especially Michael Morgenstern with MorningStar Booking and Events, and everyone from Mor Dagor. 'I Guess We Owe You Some Beers?!' A very big Thank You to Michael, Mike and everyone else at BCP Agency for putting SOR on the Vomitory & P.D. tour. We will post more info about this tour in the coming weeks, as well as remove the artwork/promotion for 'SOR In EU Tour Part 2' and replace it with the new tour's artwork/promotion. Check back then.."

Solace of Requiem has checked in with the following announcement about lining up European tour dates for the fall:

"Solace of Requiem will be touring in Europe again this Autumn on a two-part tour, playing six countries in two and a half weeks. SOR would like to say thank you to all the people who are working hard to make this tour possible. Especially Michael Morgenstern with MorningStar Productions, a long time old-school metal friend and the best booking man in Germany. Patrick Roscher with Moshquito/Xiom, a good man to have on your side when you need to speak in a foreign language. And our new friends with Disbelief & Mor Dagor, without whom the tour would not be possible.

"Part One Believe In Nothing Tour 2011 is scheduled to be in France, Belgium and the Netherlands and will be headlined by the German Death Metal band Disbelief. Solace of Requiem and the German Prog Death Metal band Xiom will play as their support for these dates.

"Part Two Black To Death Tour 2011 is scheduled in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic. These dates will all be headlined by Solace of Requiem and the German Black Metal band Mor Dagor W/ Ex Members Of Belphegor (mordagor.de) will be playing as SOR's support. All of the cities and venues will be published as soon as the tour dates are all confirmed."

Solace of Requiem Issues Tour Recap

Solace of Requiem has checked in with the following recap of the band's European tour:

"Solace of Requiem has just returned from the Resurrected In Europe Tour 2010. There are a few photos of the tour that have been added to the profile. Unfortunately, Resurrection's vocalist Paul DeGolyer had a family emergency only 4 days into the tour which required him to immediately return home to the United States.

"In order to keep the tour rolling, SOR Bassist / Vocalist Jeff Sumrell assumed vocal duties for Resurrection for the remainder of the tour. For 8 nights Jeff pulled double-duty and performed on stage for both SOR and Resurrection, doing a fine job for both bands. In the words of one of the promoters of the tour: 'That dude is a fucking machine!' More...
