River of Souls was formed in 2014, by Paul, Bart, and Benjamin.
The debut album, titled “The Well of Urd”, was released in 2017. This concept album consists of 6 songs revolving around lyrical themes like our everlasting fate, the binding forces of order and chaos, the inevitable journey through the Unlight and rebirth through death. The words are kept company by a diverse musical palette. By alternating brooding doomy passages with bursts of heavy riffing, a gateway is created to the world that lies beneath the Well.
After receiving many very positive reviews on “The Well Of Urd”, a 3-track EP titled ‘The Nihilist’ is released on January 24th 2018. It’s recorded with drummer Mike Klaassen. In April 2018 guitarist Patrick Vos joined , and with this line up, River Of Souls played three gigs in november 2018, including Armistice Doomfest in Antwerpen, Belgium, and at Dutch Doom Days in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
While working on a new full length cd as a three piece band again, River of Souls will release the track ‘Prometheus Unbound’ on June 24th, as a digital only release.
