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 new guys in the scene “Rock In Sight” organized their second multi-band concert, “That One Night 2”. The organizers have previously given us “That One Night 1” and helped in organizing “Break The Cycle”, so I was guessing that by their third event, they should have an idea of how things go.
