Solothus - No King Reigns Eternal (Black vinyl)


Solothus could be classified as part of the large revivalist cohort that brought us Krypts, Stench of Decay and Swallowed, but they’ve had a niche of their own since the get-go – death/doom, with some additional sprinkles that lend a kick to the traditional Finnish morbidity. This helped their riffs come alive and grow some character of their own, making their debut enjoyable and quite discernible. The guys haven’t been resting on their laurels for the past three years though, as the follow-up record sees them hone their sound and deliver a true cracker, with the Finnish sophomore fatum possibly blowing some non-existent history-repeating wind in their sails.
