US-based extreme music website, Toilet Ov Hell has just premiered Solus Ex Inferis‘ upcoming debut full-length album in its entirety a full day ahead of its worldwide release. Toilet Ov Hell writer Spear writes,“This is an album that lives and dies by its speed, kicking off at full throttle and racing towards the finish line in a total blur. Not to say that it’s incomprehensible; in fact, everything is shockingly clear given both how fast it goes and how music that relies on its low end this heavily tends to get muddy. Every sweep, every blistering drum fill is clear and precise, but not so clinical as to feel artificial.”
The band’s frontman Sahil Makhija (Demonic Resurrection) says, “The album is a reflection of our society today, how religion is a tool used to exploit people, a means to an end, a reason for bloodshed. It’s about how times are changing and people are standing up to their oppressors and hopefully we will have a better world today than we did yesterday. I think the music really reflects that as well in it’s furious pace and straightforward brutality but it still stays true to the art of writing a good song and has some memorable hooks and melodies. We hope metal fans enjoy it.” Stream/listen to the album in its entirety, [HERE].
Solus Ex Inferis is a trans-continental, technical death metal band founded by long-time musician and guitar player, Dave Sevenstrings alongside Marco Pitruzzella aka Lord Marco (Six Feet Under, Sleep Terror, ex-The Faceless), Sahil Makhija aka Demonstealer (Demonic Resurrection, Reptilian Death), Ollie Morgan (Necropathy) and Mauricio Catalán. The band first broke into the worldwide metal scene back in 2018 with their critically acclaimed 4-song EP, Demonic Supremacy. Three years on, Solus Ex Inferis has resurfaced with news of their debut full-length album, Daemones Ceramici; scheduled to be released on 9th July 2021.
Right from the band’s inception, it has been Dave Sevenstrings’ constant endeavour to write music that combined fast-paced, blast-beat style death metal with melodic lead elements and simultaneously was informed by the sounds of celebrated bands in the genre like Vital Remains, Hypocrisy, Deeds Of Flesh, Psycroptic etc. It started to evolve into its own thing once all the members started participating in the writing process and started to contribute some of their own musical influences from the different regions they came from. Hence, the music on Daemones Ceramici, while being devastatingly fast-paced and razor-sharp technical, “still retains the core of any good song, (and includes) solid riffs that you can headbang to” says Dave. If you thought the last EP was any indication of how brutal or extreme Solus Ex Inferis could sound, the full-length quashes all of that point-blank and strives to push all known boundaries within the tech-death realm. Named after the malevolent spirits in Greek mythology, Solus Ex Inferis’ debut full-length plays around concepts of demonology and the occult; often re-contextualizing it for the terrible state of the world as we know it today. “The album reflects on human beings as the real demons, it reflects the hypocrisy and hatred fueled by religion” adds Makhija, the band’s frontman and lyricist.
Solus Ex Inferis’ debut full-length album, Daemones Ceramici, is releasing worldwide on the 9th of July, 2021. Pre-orders for the digital release and merchandise are now available on the band’s Bandcamp, [HERE]. The album will be available to stream on all streaming services including YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music.
