Solacide - Fall from Eternity (2021)


With almost every Finnish musician playing on an average of 3 bands, we get tons of high-quality outfits like Solacide. This band features an intense Melodic Black Metal sound filled with excellent musicianship and solid songwriting capabilities. In “Fall from Eternity”, the band unravels nearly 40 minutes and seven tracks of music reminiscent of bands like Old Man’s Child, Dimmu Borgir, and Naglfar.

Opening with the album title track, the band quickly makes a statement with commanding guitars, blistering drumming and subtle atmospherics. Being far from linear, playful pieces like “Forsaken Gods” perfectly blend the band’s Symphonic BM core sound with some progressive elements thrown in the mix, alongside some killer vocal lines. Changing the pace with the instrumental “Oblivion”, the band returns with the lush, more elaborate, and slightly slower tempo “Far Beyond Reality”.

The blistering “The Coldest Night” is by far our favorite song in this release, presenting relentless drumming alongside crafty keyboards and some memorable guitar passages. Riding the intensity all the way to the end with “Away from Light” there is a certain edge of darkness to this piece that makes it intriguing as a potential avenue for the band to shift to in the future.

With heavy competition from established Black Metal outfits, Solacide manages to stand out with innovative ideas and a very engaging style. “Fall from Eternity” features intricate songs filled with crafty melodies and powerful execution. If you are looking for something different, yet heavy and BM-ish, definitely check out a copy of this release.
