INTRO

2009: "A Way Out" marks the return of Vincent, former IN MEMORIA's singer, after some featuring on tributes and remixes under the nickname of Wytlyt, he returns with his solo project: SOUL STALKER.
A minimal Dark electro, tensed, 100% cold electronic on a background of industrial landscape, SOUL STALKER takes roots into old school electro such as Klinik, Plastic Noise Experience and Dark wave (Project Pitchfork, Suicide Commando).

A permanent clash between an icy world of lack, of frustration and depression, and a furious desire to resist, to find a way out... to dance!

The melodies are simple and merely efficient ("The Mirror"), dark and whirling basses and EBM beats, almost martial and aggressive rhythms give to this cold electro a very dancefloor side.
Harassing synth sounds and heavy metal saturated (as in "Lost Souls" or the very industrial "Pain") charge the atmosphere.

And the voice hammers down the nail, cold, nervous, or disillusioned, perfectly sticky to very personal lyrics.

His first live appearences (Kata Bar, Le Klub, La Cantada II) gave him the opportunity to show an original and personal style. Tensed, cold but also stirring and energetic.
The 11 songs of "A Way Out" go straight to essentials, they are direct, efficient; a real shock therapy through the body to the mind.
