Solitary – Nothing Changes (1998)
One of the UK’s best kept thrash secrets, these nutters decided to embark on a career in thrash in 1998 and couldn’t have given two shits about the sorry state of the genre as the decade drew to a close. Fuck it, they’d create their own scene if they had to!
Debut release, Nothing Changes, made an immediate impact on the UK’s own nascent thrash scene, reminding thrashers that the UK could still shake shit up when we wanted to and Nothing Changes proved to have a hit in its considerable arsenal!
By 2002, “A Second Chance” had topped the mp3 Metal Charts – having on average been downloaded four thousand times per month – and Solitary were a name to watch and with a solid ear for groove, it was the heads-down clattering of “A Second Chance” and “Twisted” that made Nothing Changes a 90’s thrash album of note.
For thrash, everything was changing!
