SOLNEGRE - The Spiral Labyrinth (DigiCD)
SolNegre is a Doom/Death Metal band from Balearic Islands (Spain).
The band was recently formed by Gebre and Rigel, bandmates since 1995 and founders of the Doom Metal sextet Helevorn.
They are surrounded in the project by Tomeu Crespí (Golgotha) and Miguel Serra.
The musical inspiration is taken from the old school greats of Doom/Death metal from the ’90s, referring to well-known bands.
SolNegre (/ˈsɔɫnə.ɣɾə/) is the Vessel through which we channel our creative impulses and somber thoughts. We consider that this kind of aggressive, melancholic and atmospheric music is a natural language to us, to express not only how we feel, but who we really are... in essence. Solnegre is us without a mask.
The album is divided into eight pieces, with an approximate duration of 9 minutes each.
It’s a conceptual journey through different scenarios with the common denominator on the pain, the anguish, the hypersensitivity and the struggle with a highly functioning depression, which is absolutely based on a real condition.
The music can be approximated as Doom/Death Metal with a strong Old school vibe, here bands like My Dying Bride and early Anathema and early Opeth might come to mind, and maybe among the current scene we could mention Shape of Despair, Ahab and Doom Vs.
