SOLACE OF REQUIEM, an old-school and technical death metal band from Virginia Beach, Virginia, has issued the following update:
"A new guitar player!! Chris Armijo from San Diego, California will be joining SOLACE OF REQUIEM for their upcoming project in Germany. SOLACE OF REQUIEM would like to assure their fans that the new guitarist has been carefully chosen and that he is more than capable of playing guitar on the band's new album and upcoming tour through Germany this autumn. Chris is an excellent guitar player as well as a pretty cool guy to hang around. So I'm sure SOLACE OF REQUIEM fans will accept him.... Once they see that his guitar playing abilities far outweigh how ugly he is... Ha Ha Ha
"SOLACE OF REQUIEM will be leaving for Borgentreich this October. The band is about to record their third album this fall and this time Andy Classen at Stage One Studio in Germany will be handling the production duties. Andy Classen, who was the guitarist for the German thrash band HOLY MOSES, may be more well known currently for his engineering work and the production of albums from bands such as KRISIUN, ROTTING CHRIST, BELPHEGOR, NAGLFAR, GRAVEWORM, SINISTER, DEW-SCENTED, ASPHYX, TANKARD and many others. The new material for this album is more technical and more advanced in song structure than the previous albums. Not to mention a hell of a lot faster! So Andy seemed to be an excellent fit for the kind of production the band will be going for on the new material...
"SOLACE OF REQUIEM has been searching for a guest vocalist and possibly a guest solo guitarist for their upcoming album. Although a guest guitarist has not been found yet, the band is pleased to announce that Paul DeGolyer, frontman for the Florida old-school death metal legends RESURRECTION, will be adding his voice to one of the new tracks. We are all extremely happy that Paul has decided to help out and it is an honor to have someone of Paul's caliber working on this project. On a cool side note, RESURRECTION will also be putting out a new album soon called 'Ritual Slaughter'. Their new CD should also be out sometime in 2008..."
