After merely 2 years, VOICE OF THE SOUL part ways with drummer Rudy Fares. The band was formed in 2007 by Kareem Chehayeb and Monish Shringi in Kuwait. The band has released 3 EPs: ‘Winds of Apprehension’ in July 2009, ‘Eyes of Deceit’ in 2010, and the internationally acclaimed ‘Into Oblivion’.
In April 2014, VOICE OF THE SOUL recorded their full-length album, “Catacombs” (Read Review in Issue 6 – Page 26). And later in June of that year, Rudy Fares joined the band and performed with them a handful of shows between Dubai and Lebanon.
The band announced the departure of Rudy in the below statement:
Rudy has decided to leave Voice of the Soul. We want to thank him for all his contributions these past few years. We look forward to see him continuing to slay behind the drums in other projects! We will announce our fill-in drummer for our upcoming Beirut show tomorrow.
The next day, VOICE OF THE SOUL posted the below video announcing the drummer that will fill in for Rudy during Metal Bell Magazine’s METAL GATHERING event: Bosphorus Cymbals artist Bachir Ramadan.
