Thrash Hardcore Punk crossover band from Edmonton, Alberta (Canada)
Solborn is a symphonic metal band based in Edmonton, Canada founded by songwriter and keyboardist Anri Tsiskaridze. Born in the Republic of Georgia, Anri moved to Canada in 2008. In 2011 he started working on a metal project called “Solborn”. Originally influenced by classical music and 70's prog rock, he soon expanded his influences to include bands such as Nightwish and Epica.
In 2014 he found himself a crew to execute his vision and began recording what would become their first full-length album, “Dark Lights of Delirium”. Four years and a hundred obstacles later, the album is finally ready for release. The songs dive into the escapism that symphonic metal is steeped in, where history is presented in a dream-like light, and fantasy and reality poetically collide.
