DISCONNECTED SOULS emerged in 2018 out of a desire to incorporate and blend the three great pillars of music, electronic, classical and metal. Following their debut EP Warring Elements, the band have since been releasing a diverse array of singles, leading up to the debut album. The quintet based out of Chester, England, strive to create a distinctive sound that draws upon the depths of metal, while playing with tones and textures. Each member brings a diverse range of musical interests to the table and the resulting sound encompasses a wide variety of instrumental and vocal styles. DISCONNECTED SOULS take their name from the growing disconnect between humans; both from each other but also within ourselves, as well as the increasing rift with the natural world. Fragments of Consciousness will be released on January 19th, 2024.

"When I just keep moving inexorably forward and forget to turn back, suddenly, there's a tap on my shoulder. Surely that can't be a bad thing." - School-Live!
Holly Frances Royle
Based in Chester, UK, Holly has been playing keys and guitars for almost two decades. With a love of the dark and macabre, it's not surprising she loves to compose heavy music with an eerie undertone while making use of haunting vocal styles. She draws musical and thematic inspiration from literature, history, and nature, as well as D&D and fantasy realms. Along with composition and lyricising, Holly is the glue keeping us all together.
Fit For An Autopsy
"I lingered round them, under that benign sky: watched the moths fluttering among the heath and harebells, listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass, and wondered how any one could ever imagine unquiet slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth." - Wuthering Heights
Tim originally started out jamming and throwing ideas around with Fletch, and has since been along for the ride. An avid listener of anything emotive with a big sound. He's a big fan of the energy and atmosphere of metal gigs and is keen to bring this same energy to the compositions of Disconnected Souls.

Felix Luca King is a musician, writer, and illustrator with an interest in multimedia storytelling. Loves theatrics and excuses for a good costume. Despite being pretty extroverted, they only joined Disconnected Souls after realising you had to actually communicate your desire to join in. Oops. Mostly, they're thrilled to work alongside friends to create things as a group.
