About Souls Gathering

Gathering Souls is a solo project created in 2008 by Slordef in order to give a name and an image to the music he created in the Metal style.
The "Souls Gathering" name comes from the idea that souls are watching us and tell our story.

The texts of the songs may seem contradictory, but it is intended by the author Slordef. For him, play with these contradictions mean that we must go beyond the words and their definitions first. This is particularly true in the album "Set Your Senses" has real meaning for the senses "touch", "view", "hearing", "taste", "smell" which does not really coincide with the "meaning" of the words as expressed in the song "Set Your Senses" at first. The man not only communicates with speech, because gestures and behavior are even more important.

Deadly Sins is the album retracing the seven deadly sins. Inspired by them, Slordef imagine telling the story of a personage through the various steps and finally dying under the weight of guilt.
