New tour dates announced! Live and interview footage from Uppsala castle available!
IN SOLITUDE have returned to Sweden after their successful North American tour with Watain and Tribulation. Throughout the tour, IN SOLITUDE performed a set consisting of songs from each of their three albums, including their newest release, Sister. At the Los Angeles show, clips were captured and two live videos have been launched. The first of which is for the title track from the new album, the second is for fan favorite song To Her Darkness. View the clips now at the links below to experience the raw, live exuberance of IN SOLITUDE.

Sister has garnered heaps of praise from press worldwide, with Decibel Magazine declaring that “In Solitude embody all the best elements of heavy metal: flamboyance, melody, theater, escapism, menace, power. All are on masterful display on Sister, and the rest of the metal world has been served notice.” Metal Hammer in the UK elaborates on IN SOLITUDE’s stylistic approach: “In finding new ways to sing about death, doom has found a new lease of life. In Solitude are among the new breed.”
Sister was recorded at Studio Cobra in Stockholm, Sweden during March 2013. The album was produced and mixed by Martin “Konie” Ehrencrona and stands as a logical next step above and beyond its predecessor, The World.The Flesh.The Devil. IN SOLITUDE’s strength resides in their ability to craft dark and oppressive atmospheres within the auditory realm of classic heavy metal. Sister compounds this trademark sound further, beginning with the acoustic intro, He Comes, and saturates the record in an aura of uniqueness; see: Lavender and the title track.
The album concludes with an 8-minute, driving, near trance-like opus that features guest guitarist Pelle Forsberg (Watain). Additionally, Jarboe of Swans fame can be heard on Horses in the Ground. Moods range from Mercyful Fate-esque guitar flavors, shadows of Black Sabbath, the heavy dissonance of Swans, to straightforward, earworm riffs. In any case, one thing can be said for certain: their delivery is as genuine as it is impressive.
IN SOLITUDE will be touring Europe in February in support of Black Metal heavyweights Behemoth and Cradle Of Filth! New shows in Lyon and Bologna have been announced while the Bochum-show has been moved to Oberhausen!

IN SOLITUDE: “We are finally embarking upon Europe for the first time in the wake of our new album “Sister”. The scabs are ready to be ripped open and the boys are binding the ropes of their saints.

We also would like to inform you that IN SOLITUDE made a 2 part interview series with PSL where they also perform A Buried Sun and the Cortex-cover Jesus I Betong live in the ruins of the 400 year old castle of Uppsala. Until now it has only been available in Swedish but thanks to a lot of you people showing interest in this it is now available with English subtitles! Click HERE to check it out!
In PSL’s own words: “By popular demand: the english subtitles for our two part interview series with swedish rock band In Solitude are done! This spring In Solitude took a break from recording their third album, “Sister”, to show us one of their favorite places in the world: the 400 year old Uppsala castle ruin. When the clock struck midnight (exactly 446 years after the crazy king Erik XIV of Sweden went on a killing spree through the castle) the band performed two songs for us: “A Buried Sun” and “Jesus i betong”, a cover of swedish punk band Cortex.”
Another message from IN SOLITUDE: “We would also like to take the oppurtunity to thank all of you who supported us by buying merch and donating money to make up for the money we lost on the tour. You saved us.”

There is a stone to the head”
