SOUL DISSOLUTION - Exclusive Premiere Of Entire New Album Stardust

Terra Relicta is proud to offer you an exclusive streaming premiere of the new album, Stardust, of Belgian atmospheric post-black metallers Soul Dissolution, right before its official release on 25th March through Black Lion Records. T.V. in a review of the album says: "Soul Dissolution did one of the most captivating and mesmerizing atmospheric post-black metal albums released lately. Stardust is a wild but also unforgettable journey into the dark sonic skies." Read the full review over HERE.

Soul Dissolution were formed in December 2012 by multiinstrumentalist Jabawock and vocalist Acharan. After their first demo, Cold Rays And Grey Waves, released in 2014, the band released its debut full length in February 2016, entitled Pale Distant Light, the album defined the early sonic hallmark, a moody, mid-paced form of atmospheric/post-black metal, influenced by the likes of Alcest, Agalloch, Raventale and early Katatonia. The debut album, released by Throats Productions on CD format and Heathen Tribes on cassette format, was openly embraced by the critics and the listeners.

It didn't take too long for the band to go back to the drawing board, and a bit more than a year after the debut's release, a new album was completed. The sophomore album Stardust was conceived with the intention to reshape the band's compositional style, while preserving the key elements of their sound. The result is shorter and more straightforward album filled with catchy riffs, dynamic structures, faster paced riffs, and with an improved sound quality. This new effort is neither a drastic change of direction, nor a simple continuation of the debut; it shows the ambition of the band to evolve and transcend its beginnings. The newer materials take additional inspiration from bands such as Imperium Dekadenz, Winterfylleth, Hate Forest and Forgotten Tomb. Far from being just a follow up album, Stardust redefines the band's style, having more straightforward compositions, catchy melodies, and heavier riffs.

The four proper tracks on this album are quite long, between seven and ten minutes, but it doesn't get boring for a second, they know how to make the listener interested with these breaks and highly captivating melodies, plus there are many parts with atmospheric synths that add another dimension to the already dense, emotionally charged and rich sound. Yes, Stardust is a must album from the new rising star in the fields of post-black metal and is highly recommended for every fan of the genre, and you have now a chance to give it a listen right before the official release in the player below.

The band's line-up has been now expanded with the addition of a drummer, which brings them closer to performing live this year, to support the release of Stardust. Black Lion Records is releasing this monumental album on digital and digipak CD formats this Sunday 25th March. Appease your inner self within the enchanting sea of dark melodies.

Session drums on the album were played by Forge Stone (Norse, Gods Of Eden, ex-The Amenta). Guitars, bass and vocals were recorded by Jabawock at Dissolution Studio. Arrangement and orchestration of the track "Vision" by Gary Salyers (Woodmere Mixing Services). Mixed by Harvey O'Sullivan and mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Forgotten Tomb, Wode).
