SOL INVICTO Featuring DEFTONES Guitarist: 'As Above So Below' Due Next Month

March 22, 2010

SOL INVICTO, the drum 'n' bass-meets-metal side project of DEFTONES guitarist Stephen Carpenter and Richie Londres from the C.L.P. (CULTURA LONDRES PROYECTO) on production/guitar, will release an eight-song album, "As Above So Below", mid-April via Londres' label Altered Beats. The CD also features SIKTH drummer Dan Foord.

Commented Londres: "It's been a long time coming and we appreciate our fans have been very patient and I know they are gonna be surprised by what they hear. I think we have blended the drum-and- bass and metal the right way since a lot of bands have tried and failed and plus with the legend that is Dan Foord joining on the drums it's added the dimension needed for some serious live shows in the future. We just need to find a vocalist, but all in good time as we have already put the wheels in motion for that."

SOL INVICTO's sound is described as "a mix of DEFTONES-style heavy guitar riffs and soundscape melodies with grimy crushing drum-and-bass beats and basslines, all mixed down in London, England."
