Soulsplitter is a highly dedicated Germany-based music and arts collective founded by the musicians Fenix (drums), Simon (guitars), Daniel (keys) and Felix (bass).
They started writing on their self-released debut record Salutogenesis in 2019, eager from the start to melt their musical backgrounds and influences into a new and original sound. Inspired by the Progressive Rock from the seventies as well as modern metal sounds, jazz harmonies and the intricate classical compositions of the late romanticism, their sound evokes reminiscences of Dream Theater, Steven Wilson and Opeth but also Pink Floyd, Emerson, Lake And Palmer or Queen. The album consists of eight songs which act like movements in a coherent story, telling a tale of love, death, meaning and self-awareness.
Now three years after the debut album the band is back with their sophomore album Connection, and this is a more mature and even better album than the very good debut. The band melt 70s and 80s with 90s avant-garde to a distinctness and intriguing music.
The band states, «Breathtakingly beautiful. Unfathomably fragile. Made up by your imagination, leading infinitely inward. Do you dare to step on the Glass Bridge?».
