    OmschrijvingSoulsplitter is a highly dedicated Germany-based music and arts collective founded by the musicians Fenix (drums), Simon (guitars), Daniel (keys) and Felix (bass). They started writing on their self- released debut record “Salutogenesis” in 2016, eager from the start to melt their musical backgrounds and influences into a new and original sound. Inspired by the Progressive Rock from the seventies as well as modern Metal sounds (including grunts), Jazz harmonies and the intricate classical compositions of the late romanticism, their sound evokes reminiscences of Dream Theater, Steven Wilson and Opeth – but also Pink Floyd , Emerson, Lake and Palmer or Queen. The album consists of eight songs which act like movements in a coherent story, telling a tale of love, death, meaning and self-awareness. Opening with a profoundly cinematic intro track (“The Prophecy”) leading straight to the digressing and monumental “The Transition”, Soulsplitter demonstrate their exuberantly vibrant standing grounds immediately. Call it progressive or avant- garde; it’s hard not to smile in joy throughout the entire time, as the pleasantly well produced collision of styles constantly throws unexpected twists and turns our way, while managing to keep the flow and atmosphere unbroken. Previously released single “The Moloch” stands out as one the heavier tracks, relying on distinct rhythmic patterns and constantly building the mood with colourful instrumentation. Mirroring its title, it is at this point that the album fittingly engulfs the listener whole at the latest. Salutogenesis is constructed in a way where it evolves incessantly – all the tracks are connected to each other while residing on their own layers. The conceptual weight lies on, as the title suggests, well-being, health, and healing. Strongly opposed to the world’s obsession with diseases and ailments, Soulsplitter harness invigorating pace and bracing melodies as their main asset. You can hear that the technical prowess is most certainly there, but the compositions and tracks never rely on simply inhumane execution or sounding weird just for the sake of it. Perfect examples of these would be the wavering instrumental “The Dream”, as well as the fascinating closing track “The Sacrifice”. It’s incredible how unpredictably wanton but maturely serious an act can be on their first release, and it’s also very easy to start to foretell that Soulsplitter‘s future is a blindingly glaring one.
