EYE OF SOLITUDE releases “Awoken by Crows” music video. French label Kaotoxin records has teamed with UK’s magazine Zero Tolerance to premiere the debut music video by London-based Orchestral Funeral Doom / Death band EYE OF SOLITUDE for Halloween!
The music video is for the song “Awoken by Crows”, both the opening track of their second full-length, Sui Caedere (released June 25th), and title track of their latest (digital) EP, Awoken by Crows (released May 7th and featuring three exclusive bonus tracks) and features alternative model Ivy Tenebrae. The video has been directed by J. Saunders of Dead Parrot Productions (already responsible for fellow label recording artists Unsu’s “The Filthy” music video).
Sui Caedere is a 72+ minutes monolith of intense despair and darkness, mixing a Funeral Doom / Death basis with elements of Death Metal and Orchestral / Progressive Metal, all of this topped with inhuman and ultra low vocals by mastermind Daniel Neagoe (also in Unfathomable Ruination).

UK release date: Dec. 3rd through Code7 distribution
US release date: early 2013 through MVD distribution
Born in London, UK, in 2010, Eye Of Solitude is the creature of Daniel Neagoe, who’s also the singer of the Brutal Death Metal band Unfathomable Ruination (Sevared records) and main character behind both the Depressive Black Metal band Colossus and the Dark Ambient project The Departure. After having left his job as a soundtrack composer for a Romanian movie company, he relocated to London and joined the local underground extreme Metal scene. Daniel still felt an urge for something radically different, more extreme in a way, more ambient at the same time, something mixing the beauty and the beast, something that wouldn’t have been heard before. Eye Of Solitude was born, first as a solo-project, then a full-fledged band with permanent and session members, among which Unfathomable Ruination /Trifixion bassist Federico Benini. The debut album, The Ghost, was self-released by the band in 2010, soon followed by a three-track, untitled, promo in late 2011. This is where Kaotoxin stepped in and offered to release their next full-length, Sui Caedere. So impressed by the final result and the aforementioned promo, Kaotoxin also released the Awoken by Crows digital EP, which features three exclusive bonus tracks, along with the opening track from Sui Caedere, in May 2012.
