Purest of Pain – Solipsis
Release: 01-03-2018
Label: Independant release

Dutch melodic death metal band “Purest of pain” are ready to unleash their long-awaited debut album ‘Solipsis’ on March 1st, 2018.
The band launched a successful Indiegogo campaign for the “Solipsis” album. Only one plug-in, and not a single digital effect or synth was used for the recording of “Solipsis”.

The album was produced by Merel Bechtold. Mixed by Mantis Audio. Mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Arch Enemy, Soilwork).
Merel Bechtold was responsible for the artwork concept and bass player Frank van Leeuwen designed and finalized the cover.
Groove, ambiance, tone and melody: that’s what Purest of Pain does ! (est. 2008). Their debut album “Solipsis” is a force to be reckoned with.
Guitarist and main songwriter Merel Bechtold who’s already toured the world with the much respected bands Delain, MaYaN and The Gentle Storm/Anneke van Giersbergen,
is leading this energetic quintet from Holland.

Purest of pain has been a relentless live act for a few years now. After having released the Ep “Revelations In Obscurity” (2011) and the single “Momentum” (2013),
now it’s time for their debut full length album “Solipsis”. The band didn’t hold back one bit. It took them seven years to create it from the writing process up to the final mastering.
