Vocalist Mac Smith commented: “KROSIS is proud to present, ‘Terminus‘, the lead single from our upcoming album, Solem Vatem Redux. This release includes completely revamped production and new vocal work from myself. Joining the band roughly five months after the initial release of ‘Solem Vatem‘, I am extremely excited to reveal my take on this material. This project was challenging, as I had to adopt some vocal stylings that I had not previously attempted before. Overall, I am very proud of how ‘Solem Vatem Redux‘ has turned out, and we hope you will be too! Thank you for all your support and we hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it”
‘Solem Vatem Redux‘ is the second part of KROSIS‘ ‘Memoir Anthology‘, a series of three releases including a re-release of their debut album ‘Mount of Sacrifice‘, a re-release of their 2018 Unique Leader label debut ‘Solem Vatem‘ and there will be a brand new EP to come in 2021.
‘Solem Vatem Redux‘ featured all new recordings and mixes by Brandon Scurlark of Eltar Studios and a new master by Jamie King (The Contortionist, Between The the Buried and Me). It also retains the original’s guest performances from Pierre Daniel of Kadinja and John Robert C. of The Last Ten Seconds Of Life.
‘Solem Vatem‘ was originally released in 2018 featuring vocalist Tyler Brown. Shortly after release, Brown departed from KROSIS and was replaced by Mac Smith. 2020’s ‘Solem Vatem Ultimate Redux‘ spotlights Smith’s unique and diverse vocal ability, and gives the fan-favourite album a whole new soundscape.
