European tour with Beastmilk begins next month – watch this space as Destructive Music will cover the London gig and interview In Solitude as well.
In Solitude comments on the tour: “We’re very glad to announce this headlining tour, and we can’t wait to steer and spill death’s lights in Europe again. And in such splendid company. We’re sure this will be something particularly steep and special for all of us!”

7.5/10 – review by Jamie Cansdale
It begins with the wail of a man before becoming bludgeoned by the Call of the Tyrant – and this is one tyrant of a record. From the get go, this debut slab of utterly ghoulish death/doom is a beast so heavy it is unfathomable. Switching between pure death metal (Ia Cthulhu) to the slow life-rendering crawl of songs like Mankind’s Damnation with effortless ease, Dagon may not be the most original release to come of late but does very well to keep listeners hooked until the very end.

This is the first release I hear form the UK band Inconcessus Lux Lucis, although they have made music with this lineup since 2006 (in the beginning under the name Whorethorn), but I’m guessing these guys have been in the world of underground metal a bit longer than that.
2014 will mark the 20th anniversary of Windir and Ulcus’ start up in 1994. It will also mark the 10 year anniversary of Vreid. Vreid now consist of Hváll, Steingrim, Sture & Strom which have all taken part as both composers and artists in all three bands.
The Sognabrigade will give exclusive performances where they will play songs from all the three bands, and at the same time cover their discography from past to present. This summer they played at Hellfest, Wacken and Karmøygeddon, and now, in October, Europe is up! Sognametal will be exclusively performed at selected shows across the continent.
On the 23rd of October they will be coming to the Underworld in London – this is not to be missed!
