The Great Awakening

by Solace of Requiem

There is no doubt that musicians should be good on their instruments but the technical aspects of music should not be limited to the instrumentation alone. SOR has created a sound that is not only instrumentally technical but also technical in structure.

Album Notes
“Solace of Requiem is that rare breed of band whose prodigious instrumental skill is matched by its compositional prowess. How this group remains unsigned is nearly unfathomable to me. The Great Awakening is an album at the crossroads of progressive, brutal and technical death metal. It is a challenging listen of both majesty and savagery, and it is well worth your money.”
— Jeremy Morse, Metal Review DOT COM

“Promptly after recording their second opus ‘Utopia Reborn’, Solace Of Requiem embarked on several tours in the United States and in Europe and regrettably had to face some line-up changes. Their deal with Ruptured Silence Records came to an end and since then the band has eagerly been trying to find a suitable label to release their third effort ‘The Great Awakening’, but no luck so far and therefore the band decided to self release it later this year. Solace Of Requiem has just returned from the “Resurrected In Europe Tour 2010” with Resurrection but unfortunately I missed out because ‘The Great Awakening’ has once more become a great output for this great technical death metal band. I am surprised why no record company wants to make them an offer after listening to this fine piece of death metal ridden with thrash metal hatred that will pound your ears with fast paced and mid tempo excruciating riffs, fills and growls.”
— Koen, Lords Of Metal
