North Carolina progressive deathcore outfit Krosis release their Unique Leader Records debut Solem Vatem. Recorded, mixed, mastered by Brandon Scurlark of Eltar Studios, the 12-track offering features guest appearances by John Robert from The Last Ten Seconds of Life and Duncan Bentley of Vulvodynia. "We all collectively felt that ‘Immolation Fist' had the perfect mix of intricate, progressive musicianship and crushing brutality to be the first track that we released off of Solem Vatem," says the band. "This is only the tip of the iceberg for what's in store on the rest of the record!"
Guitarist Brandon Scurlark on Solem Vatem, "We've always tried to stay away from generic formulas, but we wanted to achieve something unusual with this album that gave people a fresh perspective on deathcore. It seems like heavier music has to be placed within a certain box for artistry and diversity when it comes to composition, but we really feel like we said to "hell with that box" and put exactly what we wanted within each track. We couldn't be more excited to release this album on a label like Unique Leader considering how unorthodox our style is compared to the other artists on their roster.
"This album is not only a step up from any of our previous releases, but it's a perfect display of what we feel our music should be and the direction we want to go in from this point on. From tranquil and beautiful clean sections to sludgy disgusting vocals and hard-hitting riffs, we feel like this album will be a unique listening experience for anyone that comes across it."
