The storm bells chime, Avantgarde Music 2016.

Offer thy flesh to the worms, Ván Records 2011.



Started in 2004 as a solo project by Emil Brahe, SOL has remained active since. Over the years SOL has released numerous albums on labels like Ván, Avantgarde, Cold Spring, Weird Truth and more.

For a complete overview of releases – check the discography.
Each release or concert features a different cast of members and collaborators, with Brahe as the only constant member, lead vocalist and creator of the lyrics and concepts behind the music.
The output usually delves into emotions like fear, desperation and self-loathing as well as themes of esotericism, metaphysics and prophetic visions of humanity. A lyrics-sheet is provided with most physical releases.
As a live band, SOL has performed on average one concert per year since the debut show in 2011. Most of these have been in the home town of Aarhus, Denmark.
