The Soulless Reveals New Album Details

After recently announcing a new lineup, British melodic death metal act The Soulless (formerly Ignominious Incarceration) is preparing for the release of the new album "Isolated" which hits stores in Europe on May 16th and North America on June 7th. The cover artwork can be viewed below, and vocalist Andy Wardle also commented:

"We chose Ryohei Hase for our artwork. He did the art for Ignominious Incarceration's album and although we wanted something quite different, we know he does an awesome job. The guy on the front is supposed to be hung up as an outcast from society. He is isolated which ties in with the album title and lyrical themes within. We are really happy with the bleak colours and the overall look."

The Soulless Announces New Band Lineup

British melodic death metallers The Soulless, who are due to release their new album "Isolated" on May 16th, have added two new members to the group's line-up.

Formerly known as Ignominious Incarceration, vocalist Andy Wardle, guitarist Steve Brown, and bassist Chris Ball have added Kristen Dawson as the group's second guitarist and Dan Wilding (Aborted, Trigger the Bloodshed) as the band's new drummer.

The Soulless comment on new guitarist Kristen Dawson:

"We auditioned guitarists for months, with not much luck for the perfect shredder. The band While She Sleeps are great friends of ours and recommended a guy from their area. They said he was perfect for the band and we trust their opinion so we gave him a shot.

"He sent us an audition video for the song 'Earthbound'. His was by far the best audition video so we invited him down to the studio while we were recording 'Isolated', the debut Soulless album. We wanted Kristen to hear the album to ensure it was the music he was interested in. He loved what we were doing and really wanted to be involved. He stayed with us over the duration of the studio time. This allowed us to test him out as we could get him to play along to the studio tracks as if recording, so we could hear every mistake. He nailed what we gave him, especially considering the short time he had to learn the songs. We spent two weeks with him and got on well so the decision was easy.

The band also commented on recruiting a new drummer: More...

The studio video is a brief look into what we got up to. It includes clips of some of the coolest riffs, biggest choruses and key lyrics. Also revealed at the end is a sneak peak at the artwork and album title, plus bonus footage of our mad dancing skills. We are now getting ready to tour and have lots of other stuff in the pipeline. Merch designs are coming together and the official video will be shot in February. It should be a killer year for The Soulless!"

Ignominious Incarceration Changes Band Name

British death metal band IGNOMINIOUS INCARCERATION is changing its name to THE SOULLESS.

The band, which hails from Bath, England, has just finished writing its new album, the follow-up to 2009 debut, "OF WINTER BORN." The band has released the following statement regarding the name change:

"The band started in the pits of hell that was Sam's basement. We were just playing heavy music and having fun. When we decided on the name Ignominious Incarceration, we never anticipated the level we would get to. Had we known, I'm sure we would have chosen a simpler name. The band started to get gigs and we started to take the band way more seriously as we discovered how much fun we could have. We did our first tour with Trigger The Bloodshed and this was when we were first approached by Earache Records. This was a real turning point for the band and we realized we could make something of it. We debated changing the name whilst recording 'Of Winter Born', but chose to stick with it. We don't regret doing this as it is what represented the band at the time." More...
