SLICE OF SORROW is an atmospheric death metal band from Russia. SOS was founded as a side project of Roman Nemtsev (guitars, vocals) one of the members of metal band INSTORM
. All started when Roman began to write material which doesn't match with style of his and Marina Nemtseva
band. The material was too dark and heavy, lyrics were a little bit different too. There was no desire to add this particular wave to INSTORM. When list of the songs became big enough Roman Nemtsev decided to create a side project because he thinks, if song has been written it must be heard.
The next step was a name. SLICE OF SORROW was selected from many other versions because it perfectly reflects the mood of the songs.
