Zach Hill of HELLA/TEAM SLEEP fame has officially joined SOL INVICTO, the drum 'n' bass-meets-metal side project of DEFTONES guitarist Stephen Carpenter, Eric Bobo of CYPRESS HILL on percussion and drums, Richie Londres from the C.L.P. (CULTURA LONDRES PROYECTO) on production/guitar and AJ Cookson (UK-based producer). According to a posting on the project's MySpace page, Hill who is being described as "easily one of the most unique and skillful drummers in the world right now" is currently putting down beats in the studio for the new songs/EP.

SOL INVICTO's debut recording, a four-song EP called "Unidose", was originally scheduled to be released on May 12 via Altered Beats Music and iTunes. However, the band and the label have been offered worldwide distribution for the CD, so the EP's release date has been pushed back.

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."
