As you might know, Ingmar helped us out with the recordings of “The Well of Urd”, and he also played a couple of guitarleads on the upcoming EP “The Nihilist”, but from now on he needs to focus more on his own bands CODEX and SKELETOR.
Ingmar is a great and versatile guitarist and a supercool guy, and we couldn’t be happier with his awesome contributions to our music so far, but as with many things; “all good things come to an end”.
We wish him the best with his own music and bands ! Ingmar, thanks a gazillion !!!
Even though he offered to remain a standby guitarist for RoS in case needed, we feel it wouldn’t be fair to him or his other bands, so, now the time has come for us to start searching for a replacement….
While we’re currently recording a new EP, our debut album ‘The Well of Urd’ will be released at the end of August, accompanied by a few live performances.
We almost finished the recording of an EP titled “The Nihilist” on which our drummer Mike will make his debut. It will consist of three new tracks and one cover and has a total playing time of around 25 minutes. Be sure to check our Facebook page for more updates and pics!
We posted a teaser on YouTube of our debut album “The Well of Urd”. It gives a 5 minute sneak peek of all 6 tracks on the album.
We have found a very talented drummer to complete our band!
We have been looking for someone who can play fast, but is also able to play a powerful groove, some poly-rhythmic things, nice laid back stuff with ghost notes, and so on. In our humble opinion there aren’t many drummers who can do this all, but we have found one! His name is Mike Klaassen. Via the link below you’ll find one of his more recent drumcover videos, in this case a song of Godflesh. Mike has other videos on YouTube as well. This video, along with the videos of Kreator and Beaten To Death, convinced us to ask Mike if he would be interested to join River of Souls and we’re very happy he said “Yes”!
