If any one thing brought the members of ...soihadto... together, it's the belief that music isn't simply meant to be listened to, it's to be experienced. Rahn, Duff, Honus and Yungwirth fuel their performances with a love for the pure, immersive sound of performing live. The ...soihadto... story began in 2006 in Baltimore, Maryland. By combining a variety of influences from indie to punk to hardcore to soul-funk and an incomparable melodic approach, the sound of ...soihadto... is as varied and unique as their rapidly growing fan-base. The concept for the bands debut EP was simple: they wanted it to be less of a traditional album, and more of a personal invitation to feel and experience a live performance. The EP is a spontaneous, yet highly kinetic performance, and is the closest you can get to being on stage with the band. The band recorded their upcoming album at the Magpie Cage Studio with producer/engineer J. Robbins. While ...soihadto... have just started their journey, the combination of their unique musical stylings and the furious energy of their live performances have made them a rising band to watch.

"En Vind Av Sorg
La seg tungst
De Eldstes hus
En eim av Frost
pa en allerede Frossen sjel
Et savn av Hyllest
fra disse De Edle sinn
Minnes de svundne Tider
Et Hav av Tid
har gaet siden Den gang
Norroners tro og skikk
Til Skogen hjem en Kom
og trakk luften inn
Her lukter det Kristen manns blod
- igler pa Vare Hjerter"
