Tampa’s rock band Soulidium announces the return of front man Michael McKnight from a trip to Miami where he visited friend and world-famous cosmetic dentist Dr. Julio Hernandez. Michael’s wife, Angela D’Angeles McKnight, creator of rock/goth site ViciousAngelz.com, enlisted the expertise of Dr. Hernandez to perform the procedure that gave her permanent vampire fangs. The couples’ extreme modifications make them the first official vampire couple of rock/metal.
“Fangs are the new tattoo,” Michael McKnight declares. “I believe that not long from now, you will see a movement of vampire culture everywhere. Vampires are definitely fucking metal and I predict that the face of rock is about to change into something nobody has ever seen before.”
Angelina’s vampiric transformation will be featured in an upcoming episode of “The Addiction,” Soulidium’s self-produced, new rock and metal variety show which will be syndicated across the Internet and hosted by the band and the gorgeous ladies of ViciousAngelz.com. Episodes will be online starting in August 2008.
Having been together for over 2 years now, the dynamic gothic couple has fought an inspiring uphill battle against all odds to bring Soulidium into the limelight and to establish their new independent record label, Dark Knight Entertainment. Dark Knight Entertainment is part of the ADA/Warner Music Group and provides major distribution for bands.
Soulidium recently returned from a first tour run with Sevendust, where the dynamic horror-based group slammed audiences with their performance, video, sound, and continued to establish a dedicated fan base as they promoted their debut release Children of Chaos.
The song was featured on the Saw IV soundtrack alongside artists like Avenged Sevenfold, Ministry, Drowning Pool, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and Emilie Autumn. On July 29th, Soulidium will re-join Sevendust for another tour with Alter Bridge and Nonpoint. Upcoming tour dates for Soulidium and more information about “The Addiction” can be found at www.MySpace.com/Soulidium.
Florida Hard-Rockers, Soulidium have just announced that Alter Bridge and Nonpoint will be joining their tour with Sevendust for a run of dates starting 7/29 in Providence, RI. Supporting their debut album, Children of Chaos, Soulidium have already garnered raves from the Horror community for their video for “The Light” which was also included on the Saw IV soundtrack.

I am not exactly sure what it is about Soulidium that I like so much. I can’t say they are breaking new ground musically. The music on Children of Chaos, is quite comparable to a lot of the metal music that is on rock radio stations today. Usually, I am not too fond of the modern approach to metal, but I am able to accept it in limited doses.
The band does have a little bit of a shock rock element going on, and I do have an affection for the whole horror element. The first time I saw a picture of singer, Michael McNight, I had to jump back for a second. Maybe its the whole vampire image, but nonetheless, it works for me. It is something different, even though the band’s sound isn’t exactly new. The band has also released a couple of videos using that creepy horror element to their advantage!
Soulidium has a sound that reminds me of a cross between Filter, Tool and Breaking Benjamin. There are a few songs on this disc, that I have grown to like pretty well including, Trapped, The Light, Live Forever and Drama. All of these songs are radio ready. In fact, I have heard The Light on Squizz on XMRadio.
My only problem with this disc is this, some of the songs are so bass centric, they tend to run together and lose their own individual identity. A lot of newer bands are guilty of this, and Soulidium is no exception.
Nonetheless, I think Soulidium will gain a moderate level of success with this release. I am glad I checked this one out.
