Sol Asunder Announce CD Release Show, In Store Appearance
December 14, 2008
San Francisco based tech-melodic death metallers, Sol Asunder, have announced details for an in-store CD pre-release appearance as well as a CD release show for their forthcoming album, 'Mechanize', due to be released in February 2009 via San Jose, CA based Pitch Black Records.

Cost: $5 (All Ages)
'Mechanize' CD Relese show with: Sol Asunder, Omni, Praetorian, Miseria

According to the band, 'Mechanize' is: "a concept album built on themes of technology fused with life. The songs all differ from each other yet conduct an unremitting style of rhythm and melody. As the songs were written, a shape became more evident to the style and we ran with it. Lyrics for this album became a concept of assimilating machinery and nature. Each song is its own examination of this convergence. The song 'Demodulated' suggests words of warning from a stagnant voice only heard encoded within a broken radio signal. The themes are programmed throughout the album, yet left illusive and dormant for the listener to conclude."

Check out the video for "Demodulated" below.

Sol Asunder continues to build recognition from its inception in 2003. Armed with humble home recordings, and extreme live performances, we continue to grow a base of awesome, dedicated fans. Over the last few years, our resume has grown considerably: In our first year, we produced a music video for "Hate Fueled Anger" (available in the videos section) which helped us spread our sound in a visual medium, which was a great first step.

Sol Asunder has supported such bands live as Origin, Deeds of Flesh, Severed Savior, Impaled, Dark Tranquility, and Himsa in our first years. Our most recent big win was landing a spot on the soundtrack for "Tony Hawk Downhill Jam", one of the first games to be released for the Nintendo Wii (released 4th quarter 2006). In 2004 we came out blaring with our first studio EP release, "Asunder The Surface" which features 5 songs from old recordings unreleased. This upped the ante, and after a year of great responses from zines and websites, we came together with some songs old and new for our 2006 album "Horribly Human".

MECHANIZE is a concept album built on themes of technology fused with life. The songs all differ from each other, yet conduct an unremitting style of rhythm and melody. As the songs were written, a shape became more evident to the style and we ran with it.

Lyrics for this album became a concept of assimilating machinery and nature. Each song is its' own examination of this convergence. The song, "Demodulated", suggests words of warning from a stagnant voice only heard encoded within a broken radio signal. The themes are programmed throughout the album, yet left illusive and dormant for the listener to conclude.
