"Soul Killing Female - Utopia Mine"

This album is an illustrious debut by newcomers Soul Killing Female. Written over four years ago, Utopia Mine was finally recorded and released to the general public late last year. Sole member Michael Lewis (who has since expanded the band into a full live line-up) bares his very soul on this album, a tribute to heartbreak, broken promises and devastation. Ethereal, tense vocals wisp around over doomy riffs as the synth drones out long, somber funerary passages. This album is surprising both in its complexity and subtlety considering that one man is behind all of it. If you’re a fan of Tool or Neurosis, don’t miss the boat and check these guys out live Jan. 29 at the Zoo.

Soul Killing Female is an atmospheric, progressive sludge-metal band from WInnipeg, Canada, formed in 2004. Initially a studio project for multi-intsrumentalist Michael Lewis, the band has been playing live since early 2009 throughout central Canada

The band has released 2 full length albums:

Utopia Mine, released in 2010, is the band's debut album. Combining the sonic density of bands like Neurosis and Mogwai, with the technical riffs of Tool and the melodic sensibility of Type O Negative and Failure, Soul Killing Female are something truly unique in the world of metal - aggressively brutal and hauntingly beautiful all at once.
All instruments were played by Lewis in the studio, with the performances being captured as is, no editing, just playing.

Landmines, released in 2010, is the band's second album. Building on the wall of sound from Utopia Mine, Soul Killing Female have added more atmosphere and greater depth to create music that is at once trance-like and attention-grabbing.
This album was recorded in a manner befitting true musicianship: every instrument was recording in one complete pass, no editing, no computer fix-its. This was done in order to capture the correct mood and feel of each piece, rather than sonic perfection. Landmines is a very ‘live’ record.
