Finland, 20 Buck Spin
— Booking by Daniel at email@example.com
Solothus drops a dripping broadsword of Cimmerian carnage and staggering death-soaked doom delirium on the scorched landscape from which only mounds of skull dust and obsidian shards shall remain. Solothus’ oppressively heavy mid-paced slaughter maintains a sense of unstoppable momentum even when slowing into the glacial. Yet the land of a thousand lakes has also infused the band with an ear for eerie melodic sorcery and tastefully ripping guitar solos to compliment the riff after riff of hammering granite. Touching upon all things doom, Solothus luxuriates in both the sombre elegance and pained heaviness of the genre, its theatrical virtuosity and crushing simplicity. Solothus has stormed the gate, stained it with blood of pretenders, and taken the jewelled throne. Fans of Runemagick, Hooded Menace, Coffins, My Dying Bride, Krypts, Derketa, Ossuarium, Crowbar, and Celtic Frost, do not miss this.
