Melodic Death Metal band Voice of The Soul issued the following update concerning their recent line-up changes and their upcoming full length album:

"Hello all!

It's been less than a month into 2012 and we have been incredibly busy thus far.

First of all, we would like to announce Rana Rassouli's departure from the band. It has been a year of great experience with her, and we would like to wish her all the best in her future endeavors.

That being said, we would also like to officially introduce and welcome Khalid Temimi into the band behind the drumkit. Khalid Temimi is of Iraqi origin who was brought up in Abu Dhabi. We've played gigs with his old band, Shotgun Enema in the past. Not only is he a beast behind the kit but he's one funny guy too!

We kicked off the year at The Silent Era Gig in Dubai on January 6th! We had a great time performing with Khalid for the first time and our session bassist, Vishal Bala, who pitched in for Ahmed Al Zubaidi, who was in the UK. We had the pleasure to play right before headlining act, Perversion - who are one of the most recognizable bands from the Middle East, as well as share the stage with Black13Angelz, a Kuwait-based metalcore act who we have known for years.

We uploaded a couple of videos to our Youtube channel on youtube.com/votsband - one is of the events happening before the gig, and one is a 15 minute compilation of our set!

We have started writing for our first full-length. There is no decision made about when it will be recorded or released just yet...we are focusing primarily on playing shows with new bands in new places and spreading the VotS sickness everywhere.

Fans who are interested in t-shirts can email votsband@gmail.com for more details regarding shipping, prices...etc

Final note

Thank you for supporting the band and keeping up with all the crazy things that go on during the year. We hope to play someplace near you!

Once again, Into Oblivion EP can be purchased or downloaded on voiceofthesoul.bandcamp.com

Happy (belated?) new year!
