Musicians from Tempe who love metal and science decided to combine them. Focusing on traditional metal influences and inspiration from theoretical physics and astronomy combine to create a unique, ambient metal experience.
Founded in 2009 Sophicide started as a one-man-project by 19-year-old musician Adam Laszlo, dedicated to creating brutal and technical, yet melodic and elaborate death metal.
After the first few months enough material was written and produced to release the first EP "The Art Of Atrocity", which gained great responses throughout.
Soon Sophicide would become a respected name in the local german death metal community. Shortly after the first release Sophicide signed a deal with Willowtip Records.
Formed in 1997 as a death metal band by vocalist Johannes Prem, guitarist Sebastian Reichl and drummer Tobias Graf, they released the 7" vinyl Deadlock in 1999. After this came the EP I'll Wake You, When Spring Awakes in 2000.

The band had expanded from a quartet to a six-piece with new guitarist Gert Rymen and Sabine Weniger now a full-time member of the band.
