Swedish progressive death/doom metal act Soliloquium share a brand new music video for »Finality«
Swedish progressive death/doom metal act Soliloquium share a brand new music video for »Finality« from their latest full-length album, »Soulsearching«, out on February 25th, 2022 via Naturmacht Productions / Rain Without End Records.
Bittersweet, existential sorrow from Stockholm, Sweden. Born from the ashes of 2020’s »Things We Leave Behind«.
»Soulsearching« dives into personal hardships, the mental health epidemic, nostalgia, restlessness and much more. It’s an album for those who are still seeking, still feeling – being tossed between hope and hopelessness. There is empathy and understanding out there, but there is also a lot of hurtful, discouraging darkness. In that duality, hope comes and goes. That’s what »Soulsearching« is meant to reflect.
The music is once again mixed and mastered by doom metal aficionado Jari Lindholm (Enshine, Exgenesis, ex-Slumber) and features several guest performances, including two well-known Scandinavian progressive metal singers and Jari himself.
Soliloquium is a progressive death/doom metal band from Sweden started in 2011. It started as a side project by Stefan Nordström (Ashes Of Life, Desolator, The Ashen Tree, Trees Of Daymare, Ending Quest) and Jonas Bergkvist (Desolator, Wolfcross, Ending Quest) but grew into a band with a life of its own. The influences are Katatonia, Anathema, Paradise Lost, Daylight Dies, Rapture, Slumber, Alcest, Slowdive and many more.
Initially, Soliloquium was a classic death/doom metal band. Today the sound is dipping into blackgaze, progressive death metal, shoegaze and other styles. They’ve released two EP’s and one demo as well as four full-length albums, »An Empty Frame«, »Contemplations«, »Things We Leave Behind« and »Soulsearching«.
