Before the end of 2013, the Danish doom metal band SOL will release a full-length album as free download on Drowning.
The album will be titled “And The Mouth Of Time Is Open” and consist of 5 tracks with a total length of 47 mins. It features SOL-founder Emil Brahe on vocals, guitar, bass, drums, organ, synth and effects. Trúa of Blóðtrú on vocals, guitar, bass, drums, organ and piano. Andreas Hansn of Singvogel on guitar.
SOL is a Danish doom metal band started by Emil Brahe in the early 00′s. He debuted in 2007 on Ván Records with the crushing funeral/death doom album “Let There Be A Massacre” and has since released numerous albums in a variety of styles on different labels. Often with a varying cast of collaborators.
While most SOL works have a common denominator in themes of fear, esotericism and destruction, they differ in the form they are presented in: From acoustic drones over dark reed organ atmospherics and occult folk music to the heavy crushing doom metal sound he somehow always returns to and invigorates with his open approach to dark musical expression.
This will also be apparent on “And The Mouth Of Time Is Open”, which will be the second SOL album and third SOL release on Drowning. In 2012, SOL was featured on the Drowning compilation Total Drowning with the track “Viljen Til Kamp”.
In 2011, SOL released the mini-album Black Cloud Of Becoming as cassette on Golem Tapes and as free download on Drowning. It featured dense reed organ atmospherics, crushing death doom metal as well this twanging doom metal piece in the style of Earth.
