Founded by Erhan Karaca (drums) and Sarp Keski (guitar/vox) in 2004 in Istanbul, Heretic Soul has a death metal sound combined with some thrash and black metal parts. Most of the lyrics are anti-religious and rest of all is about life and personal situations.


First demo "Everything's Meaningless and Grey" containing 7 tracks recorded. Orçun Kocakoç joined the band as a session bass player. With this demo Heretic Soul introduced theirselves to local audition and got some reviews. Then Heretic Soul started to appear in concerts in several cities like Ankara, Istanbul, Bursa, Kocaeli, Zonguldak and Yalova.


Promo CD "Life Becomes Our Grave" containing 6 tracks recorded in Midas'in Kulakligi Studios in Ankara. It has the characteristic sound of the band; more agressive, faster and anti-religious.
