SOL NEGRO unites elements of Doom, Progressive Death, and Black Metal to create a genuine feast for the ears!
“Of Darkness and Flames” is Seattle's Underground Black / Doom Metal Icons SOL NEGRO’s 3rd album, available on Vinyl and Compact Disc! SOL NEGRO is Doom paced melodic Black Metal paired with pummelling percussion and high-energy hard rocking. SOL NEGRO guides each song through passages of turmoil that descend into areas of solemn reflection, maintaining an eerie sense of wonder. Artistic components manifest with vigorous, classic Heavy Metal melody, alongside a more ambiguous approach to structure, while embracing the rawness of early Black Metal.
SOL NEGRO generates a variety of moods, rather than the traditional verse-chorus-bridge-solo exchange of traditional Heavy Metal. SOL NEGRO exudes a great degree of harmonic depth without ever being distracting. The music of SOL NEGRO is remarkably dynamic, as different songs place emphasis on different aspects of what turns out to be a very distinctive sound.
