Soliloquium - Soulsearching, progressive death doom metal, 2022

About “Soulsearching”

“Soulsearching” is the fourth Soliloquium album, marking another step in a more eclectic and adventurous direction. It dives into personal hardships, the mental health epidemic, nostalgia, restlessness and much more. It’s an album for those who are still seeking, still feeling – being tossed between hope and hopelessness.

There is empathy and understanding out there, but there is also a lot of hurtful, discouraging darkness. In that duality, hope comes and goes. That’s what “Soulsearching” is meant to reflect.

The music is once again mixed and mastered by doom metal aficionado Jari Lindholm (Enshine, Exgenesis, ex-Slumber) and features several guest performances, including two well-known Scandinavian progressive metal singers and Jari himself.

For fans of: Katatonia, Anathema, Ghost Brigade, October Tide, Daylight Dies, Swallow the Sun, Insomnium.
