Solitary | Imperative Management:
It’s more than twenty years now since Solitary planted their standard and pledged their allegiance to the thrash metal cause. Over the decades their commitment has been unflinching, their integrity unquestionable and with 2008s Requiem album they delivered an album to challenge the genre’s best. Requiem received great reviews from the major metal press, like Kerrang and Rock Sound and tracks were featured on the cover mount CDs of Legacy, Zero Tolerance and Terrorizer.
The next few years were spent playing live at every opportunity, alongside the likes of Lawnmower Deth and Xentrix – taking the thrash to the masses. Solitary also took part in the Headbangers Balls tour, raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Having played so many great shows the band decided to celebrate their twentieth anniversary, in 2014, with the release of a live album. The album was called I Promise To Thrash Forever, once more confirming Solitary’s total dedication to pure thrash metal. The album was mastered by Darkane vocalist Lawrence Mackrory and its raw assault was the perfect way to close the first chapter of the Solitary story.
In 2015, Solitary geared up for a fresh assault on the metal world and began working on their first all new studio album in seven years. They entered the studio with world renowned producer Simon Efemey (Amorphis, Paradise Lost, Napalm Death etc) and emerged with an album that will eclipse all they have released before. With a new deal signed with UKEM Records, the album will be out in early 2017, just in time for the band’s most prestigious gigs to date – a prime slot at Hammerfest and a London show with Acid Reign. Meanwhile 2016 concludes with the release of the first single and video from the album – ‘Unidentified’ – a savage statement of intent and a warning of the explosive thrash onslaught that is to come.“...killer riffs and dynamite solos...undeniable quality...”
