In 1998, precious few bands were attempting to write music so gloriously British, so fundamentally ‘metal’ and so in thrall to the grandeur of doom legends Trouble, Solitude Aeturnus and Messiah Marcolin-fronted Candlemass as Solstice.

Majestically structured and powerfully poignant, tracks such as “Cimmerian Codex” appeared to take the entire history of Great Britain – its politics and its military fascination – and match it with windswept, fog-shrouded landscapes. A Cromwellian conquest in essence that only had one outcome; for a short while Solstice were the new kings of British doom.

Epic doom metal at its finest, Solstice’s New Dark Age channeled the no-fear approach of the new wave of British heavy metal while carving their own niche. An incredible achievement.

I love metal. Always have. Always will. As editor of Worship Metal - a site dedicated to being as positive about metal and its myriad of sub-genres as possible - my aim is to 'worship' metal through honest reviews, current news and a wide variety of features; offering the same exposure to underground bands as we do to mainstream/well known acts. Our mantra; the bands are partners and we exist to serve the bands \m/
