Talon Sullivan My favorite material from Solstice! Despite their amazing discography that lay before this that completely set the foundation, this in my opinion is where it all comes to a mighty peak. What an amazing emotional and powerful picture painted in such a short amount of time. Favorite track: I Am The Hunter.

Brandon Corsair After vanishing for more than a decade, Death's Crown is Victory is what made sure everyone knew for damn sure that Solstice was back with a vengeance. The epic heavy metal inclinations of New Dark Age are back with more bombast than ever, and new vocalists Paul Kearns provided a more strident touch with his powerful baritone that served the material perfectly. Seeing the title track of this live at Keep it True was a dream come true. Favorite track: I Am The Hunter.

👊🏻🤘🏻Nick Blakeway 🤘🏻👊🏻 This was the first bit of solstice material I discovered after seeing the great JB of Grand Magus wearing a Solstice shirt with this art on. In my eyes he’s the king of metal so with his endorsement alone I knew I’ve stumbled across a special band. This along with white horse hill are absolutely brilliant . I’m slowly collecting all the vinyl . With a new singer on board I can’t wait for future creations. A truly wonderful band Favorite track: I Am The Hunter.

Like wheat in the wind, bow and bend Your Will And Your Knee, To That Of Your Lord. He Laughs, Beckons, To Fools Who Listen Enraptured By Words, Hollow, Ill Thought Revenants Of Rebellion, Haunt Your Periphery A Cold And Nameless Grave, The propylon Void Burning Darkness, Seething Rays of Holocaust The glory fields unto which we'll pass Are dressed with fire not stone And here is where we stand, upright and unchained Whilst your shaking hands, tend to bloodied knee Without a name, you are not a man Never Forget, The Chains That Bind You Left Your Kith, For Slavery We’ll Never Surrender, We’ll Never Yield Death’s Crown Is Victory The wind heaves heavily, to sweep out the day And, like that, another flag is planted on unbroken ground It is not fear but respite that carries our sails So continue, we do, toward far off shores Ten are your thousands to each one of us, Yet not one heart that beats in song We come to fight not to fall. The tide retreats from the cowering shore So it need not wear our blood tonight. When the silence roars loudest, the moment is closest..
