With the release of their debut album, Catacombs just over a month away, Dubai based prog death metallers Voice of the Soul unveil another treat for their ever-growing fan base.
Following a recent playthrough for track ‘Pendulum’ (watch here) the band now release a lyric video for penultimate track ‘Defiled’.
Watch the ‘Defiled’ Lyric Video in the YouTube Clip below.
” ‘Defiled’ is about the apathetic, selfish society we live in. While we assume that individualism and the lack of empathy is liberating, it is actually a form of enslavement. Break away from a life of deception. Like rats, you carry the disease. Defiled and wasted, your existence is worthless,” comments vocalist and guitarist Kareem.
Catacombs is set for release on 27th March 2015 distributed via UK label Hell’s Hammer & India’s Transcending Obscurity.
First formed in Kuwait on the opposite side of the Persian Gulf in late 2007, 17 year-old Kareem Chehayeb and 16 year-old Monish Shringi released their first EP, Winds of Apprehension in July 2009 with second EP, Eyes of Deceit seeking the light of day the following summer. After playing several shows in Dubai since January 2011, the band opted to relocate to the most popular city and emirate in the UAE before releasing their third EP, Into Oblivion, live on SOS Heavy Metal Radio in Portugal in August 2011. Into Oblivion was undoubtedly the band’s most successful record with songs receiving regular airplay across the globe.
During April 2014, the band made home at Haven Studio with producer Hadi Sarieddine in Dubai and recorded their debut full-length album, Catacombs.
