I just found out about this release when looking for an affordable copy of their second album. I think it came out a few months ago.

http://tribunalrecords.bigcartel.com/product/solstice-pray-for-the-sentencing-2-cd

Never heard of the label, but it has both albums (remastered) on a 2-cd set. It also has some alternate mix of the 2nd album. Their albums usually sell for idiotic prices, so I'm glad to be able to get it just for the second album.

If you don't know this band, you should buy it just for the first album, which is an absolute skullsmashing brutaltastic death/thrash hybrid.

Quote:
OVERVIEW:
The Florida based death metal band SOLSTICE was formed in 1990 by guitarist Dennis Munoz and drummer Alex Marquez with vocalist/guitarist Rob Barrett. In 1991, they recorded a demo produced by legendary producer Jim Morris and signed a deal with Germany’s SPV/Steamhammer and their debut album was released in 1992. It was originally to be titled The Sentencing, but delays in correspondence didn’t reach Germany in time so it was simply known as Solstice. The following year internal issues combined with Rob Barrett departing for a position in Cannibal Corpse forced the band into hiatus, but in 1995 they regrouped and returned with the magnificent sophomore album, Pray.

Both albums are considered classics in the death/thrash crossover genre and at that time no bands were pushing the limits like SOLSTICE. The band is currently active once again and in 2011 Dennis Munoz remixed Pray as an exclusive addition to this collector’s set. Pray For The Sentencing is something underground metal fans have been talking about for years and we at Divebomb Records are happy to give it to them. It contains both legendary albums in original form (remastered), plus the newly remixed version of Pray. For the fans, by the fans.

The debut album is absolutely crushing. A Great companion to Malevolent Creation's Retribution. The production is almost 1-1.

I'm going to agree with the Frozen one here.
