Soul Demise

Death Metal - Germany

Soul Demise Band

Autumn Anno 1994 sees an early incarnation of SOUL DEMISE (then monikered INHUMAN) and the release of the demo "Incantation". The demo garners the band a good reputation and a strong foundation.

In 1996 after almost a two year growth/writing period, the band emerges with their Death/Thrash debut in the form of the album "Inner Fears". This garners the band much critical acclaim and the group supports the record with over 150 lives appearances and tours alongside the likes of Vader, Morbid Angel and Dying Fetus throughout 1997 and well into 1998. The band is greeted with a great live response and establishes themselves as not only a "studio outfit", but also a "live act" to be reckoned with!

The year does drift winds of change the bands way however, and the band name is changed to SOUL DEMISE due to several other acts appearing with the INHUMAN tag. SOUL DEMISE decides to prove to the world that a name change does not necessarily affect the quality of the music, and releases the MCD "Farewell to the Flesh" to prove it! The band again supports its release with even more killer live shows and tours alongside genre greats such as Krisiun, Deranged and Soilwork!

The new Metal Millennium of 2000 sees the band regrouping forces and once again entering into the Swedish Berno Studios (The Haunted, Defleshed, Deranged). The record "Beyond Human Conception" is the result and is released via Gutter records. SOUL DEMISE yet again upholds their live reputation, and assaults live audiences alongside Metal kings Deströyer 666, Immolation and Decapitated appearing throughout the year 2000 and into well 2001. The year does not go by without a hitch however and the band sees the departure of long-time vocalist Eumel. SOUL DEMISE does not lose any steam though and quickly replaces the vocalist with the equally talented Roman Zimmerhackel.

SOUL DEMISE grows even stronger in this new incarnation and appears on two successive tours with genre legends Napalm Death to massive response. In the meantime they manage to once again return to Berno studios and record their newest offerings in the creation of "In Vain". (Which for the third time is graced by the awesome artwork of Michael Schildler of Dragon Graphics.)

This latest recording leads them to the Extreme Musical Entity known as Season of Mist and a metallic union is forged. The label looks to unleash the new recording "In Vain" early 2003! Another string of live attacks is expected and Soul Demise is sure to be on the tongues and ears of the metal community for a long time to come!!!
