Solitary - The Diseased Heart of Society
Release date: 03.03.17
The Diseased Heart Of Society is so much more than ‘just another album’. It represents the complete rebirth of one of the UK’s most enduring thrash metal outfits and sets new standards in the process. Solitary have rediscovered the passion and anger that first inspired them to take up arms and rage at the world around them. Coupled with their hard earned experience, musical aptitude and the unquestioned skills of producer extraordinaire Simon Efemey (Amorphis, Paradise Lost, Napalm Death etc) the results are nothing short of staggering. From the unbridled fury of first single, ‘Unidentified’ to the accomplished majesty of epic album centrepiece ‘The Anthem Of Regret’, via precision thrash masterpieces like ‘Trigger Point Atrocity’ and ‘The Edge Of Violence’, Solitary have created an album of overwhelming power and focussed force. The Diseased Heart Of Society will take you by the throat and shake you ‘til you’re broken.
The band’s allegiance to the thrash metal cause has always been unflinching and from the heart; their 2014 live album setting out their manifesto in clear and simple terms – I Promise To Thrash Forever. They’ve ridden out the ever changing tides of fortune without wavering in their dedication and now is their time. The Diseased Heart of Society is the greatest album of Solitary’s career, casting long shadows over all they have released before – even their acclaimed 2008 album Requiem. This album is not just a personal pinnacle though; it can take on anything released by the big names in thrash in recent years – take them on and win.
The Diseased Heart Of Society is a roar of defiance from a band that are sick of the state of the world around them and tired of the weak imitations that have been masquerading as their beloved thrash metal. Enough is enough. Solitary are taking a stand and every true thrash fan will be proud to stand with them.
