Soliloquium is a progressive death/doom metal band from Sweden started in 2011. It started as a Desolator side project but grew into a band with a life of its own. The influences are Katatonia, Anathema, Paradise Lost, Daylight Dies, Rapture, Slumber, Alcest, Slowdive and many more.
Initially, Soliloquium was a classic death/doom metal band, but today it’s diving into blackgaze, progressive death, shoegaze and other styles. We’ve released two EP’s and one demo as well as a full-length album, An Empty Frame:

Here are some Soliloquium songs from the various releases to get a first impression of our sound.
“With or Without” from full length album “An Empty Frame”
“With or Without” is the first single from the album, a classic melodic death/doom metal tune in a familiar style.
“Zombie (The Cranberries cover)” from the EP “A Night of Burdens”
A death/doom metal cover of a popular mainstream rock song may sound like a weird idea. We think it turned it out really cool.
“Crossroads” from the EP “The Concept of Escape”
This is the first song from our third release “The Concept of Escape”. It’s in many ways a signature song for us, since it has a strong melodic death/doom metal hook and an overall melancholic and nostalgic feel.
