5.0 out of 5 stars Overlookd Doom Gem September 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
In short, this debut from the UK's Solstice is an excellent album firmly in the mold of clean-throated, classy doom metal that CANDLEMASS created and SOLITUDE AETURNUS perfected. Fans of those two bands should eat this one up; the only complaint i could make is that it fits the mold a little too well, not offering anything new to the style. But Solstice would tend to that on their second album, the incomparable 'new dark age' (see separate review). Nevertheless, hereon Solstice capture all the ambient, doomy melancholy that any fan of 'into the depths of sorrow' or 'nightfall' could ever want.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! July 7, 1999

Format:Audio CD
This is an amazing CD. "Lamentations" is highly recommended for anyone into Doom Metal. This CD is very depressing, yet strangely uplifting at times. Extremely enjoyable Doom...

4.0 out of 5 stars Promising inception, with room to improve January 8, 2005
By Tom Z
Format:Audio CD
Solstice is one of those new bands you can literally feel the potential residing in, waiting to be unleashed. All the workings of a amazing but not quite realized album are on display here. Whoever this singer is (too lazy to look it up at the moment) has a fairly wide range, only clean vocals though, something that struck as odd yet unique within today's Doom metal scene. The riffs are kinda all over the place, ranging in comparitive styles from Candlemass to Metallica to Katatonia to even nu-metal. While this adds variety it also leads to the songs being stretched too thin sometimes as well. Bass and Drums fill their part well as far as I can tell (I'm not the best person to comment on Rhythm). The production is lacking a bit. It's not underground black metal bad, but you can tell the band probably didn't have a lot of money to spend on that aspect of the recording. Solstice have all the workings of a great band, this album was releasing in 1999 so maybe their newer albums are better. If they're still around, I would probably recommend checking out their newer material first.
