SOULLESS FAITH is a Melodic Death Metal band from Uruguay formed in late 2014 by Julio Avila (Nuevas Fuerzas and former SeNTeNciA) as guitarist, Claudio Risso (Ex Torquemada) as vocalist and Federico Figueroa (Nuevas Fuerzas, ex Rotten State and ex Ephyra) on drums.

Ignacio Miró (ex Unscarred After Death) would later join the ranks to take over the second guitar and Sabra (former Eclampsy, Apneuma, Ephyra and Territory) would take place as bassist.

Once the band was completely set up, a demo was released which included the tracks "Dying God" and "Emptiness, Justified".

The first live performance of this line-up was on 3/14/15, as the first band in the first round of Metal Battle Uruguay, 2nd edition.

By the end of the year 2015, Ignacio Miró leaves the band so Sabra takes the place of guitarist. After some time looking for a bassist, Martin Yáñez joins the band in 2016 and takes that place.

In April of that very same year, SOULLESS FAITH crossed borders for the first time, offering two shows in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in Flores and in the city of Monte Grande.

A few months later, in September 2016, the band was invited to join as the support band for the Soilwork show in Montevideo, as part of their tour "The Tour Majestic 2016".

At the beginning of 2017, Martin Yáñez left the band, and it would be Rodrigo Polanco (Epsilon, ex Railgun and Territory) who soon replaced him as bassist.
Additionally, in the 2016 yearly poll conducted by "El Lado Oscuro", a local metal radio program and metal event producer, SOULLESS FAITH received two individual awards:
- Best male vocalist: Claudio Risso
- Best drummer (2nd place): Federico Figueroa

Currently, the band has finished recording their debut album "NO LIFE TILL DEATH", which will be released in July 2017 by the label Terminus Irae (Dies Irae).
SOULLESS FAITH was chosen in the last edition of Metal Battle as the third band to represent Uruguay at the Wacken Open Air.
