Although they were initially touted to follow Paradise Lost and Anathema as leading lights of British doom metal intothe1990s,Solstice (not to be confused with the American new age proggies using the same name) released only two albumsandone EPbefore vanishing from sight on the eve of the new millennium.

Formed by vocalist Simon Matravers nearly a decade earlier, Solstice also included guitarists Richard M. Walker andJohnPiras,bassist Lee "Chaz" Netherwood, and drummer Lennaert Roomerby the release of their sorrowful CandlelightRecordsdebut,Lamentations, in 1994. The Halcyon EP (featuring guitarist Gian Pyres, later of Cradle of Filth) followed the nextyear,butnumerous business-related and internal difficulties delayed Solstice's second full-length, New Dark Age, until 1998.

By then, only two original members (Walkerand Netherwood) remained, anddespite the helping hands of new arrivalsMorrisIngram(vocals), Hamish Hamilton Glencross (guitar), and RickBudby (drums),the album would ultimately prove to beSolstice'slast.
