Hailing from Bielefeld, Germany, SOULBOUND stand for modern and dark industrial/gothic metal and mix catchy melodies with dystopian and socially critical lyrics. With their new album Addicted To Hell, which was created under the direction of Chris Harms (Lord Of The Lost), SOULBOUND redefine their sound fundamentally, without ignoring their roots in the alternative.
Stomping beats unite heavy guitars and aggressive synths to an eschatological genre mix that is absolutely unique in this form. Dark, heavy ballads and aggressive, brute songs with great melodies reach out to each other on this album. The sound of the band is diverse and varied, but always carries an unmistakable note.
With Addicted To Hell, SOULBOUND invite us to explore the abysses of the human psyche. The lyrics symbolize the current zeitgeist and deal with emotional topics such as compulsive self-destruction, narcissism, and the fight against depression.
SOULBOUND are pure energy and probably the most ambitious newcomers of the gothic scene. Anyone who has ever experienced the band live will be able to confirm exactly that. The band knows how to carry away their audience, unleashes a firework of emotions onstage, but stays down to earth and sympathetically close to their fans.
Addicted To Hell is the final accolade for the young band and already an insider tip for all fans of dark metal and rousing gothic.
