Los Angeles based symphonic black metal band, SOTHIS, originally formed in late 1999. The founding members conducted an exhaustive search for Los Angeles' best, seeking like-minded musicians to complete an impressive line-up. Five years later, the band produced a complete line-up and entered the studio to record a four song self-titled demo. This demo would prove to be a critically acclaimed masterpiece that would land the band features in major magazines such as Revolver, Zero Tolerance, and Pit. SOTHIS embarked on a Southwest mini tour in support of the release of the demo and this successful tour would spawn the release of two limited edition live DVDs.
Now in 2008, SOTHIS have completed their much-anticipated debut full-length album entitled "De Oppresso Liber." The album transcends their demo by leaps and bounds in their performance, production and songwriting. The album was tracked in Los Angeles and then mixed in Varberg, Sweden by Andy LaRocque of KING DIAMOND fame at his Sonic Train Studios. With their new album in hand, SOTHIS is now anxiously awaiting its release and their return to the road.
