Friends and Comrades,

It's the morning of the autumn equinox, although it's early we thought we may get the ball rolling, and here is the first taste of what we have being involved in creating the past few months. Recorded at GN Studios in Huddersfield, we are much in debt to our recording engineer and also our mix and mastering engineer for their patience and advice and most importantly, their hard work in bringing out the best in us.

The past.

The past is dead, we have no interest in those who fell by the wayside, weighed down by their vanity and avarice, they are formless shades, no more of a concern to us with their vapid waxings lyrical of self importance, than any other minor irritation. Let them , and their sycophants begone, cast back into the pit of mediocrity they so richly deserve

The present

The present is here, is now,it is the five of us, making music we enjoy and to the best of our abilities for our own enjoyment

The future.

The future is what we choose to make of it, we choose therefore the following. In a matter of weeks we will make the whole of this recording available to download for a small fee upon our bandcamp site, and begin to put into production the vinyl version.

Four songs, 27 minutes, of epic heavy metal.

As a bonus, we will also release upon Irelands "INTO THE VOID RECORDS" a cassette version for those of you who enjoy this format, and to further cement our longstanding relationship with our Irish comrades.

A compact disc version will be available, but only from our future gigs, we will be offering vinyl via mail order though.

We encourage you all to share this video on your own pages, help us spread the word. And over the next few days, we'll make a few more bits of interesting news available. Until then, enjoy the first glimpse of the new record, and never surrender!

Uhh ok. Guess that counts me out!

So this is not a new full length afterall. I thought they were about to release a new album. When's that coming? That track sounds mighty good. Can't get wait to get it on CD soon oh wait...

Matter of taste, but I hear nothing wrong with this new vocalist. Actually, sounds very powerful to me.

Last and only time I saw them live with the new singer, they were great, so I wouldn't worry about that.

Yeah I was a little disappointed to hear it's an MLP, last I heard it was called Englander and was going to be a full length.

Ah well I'm just greedy. Great song, needs big speakers.

So here it is, the new mini-LP from our good selves, 27 minutes of skull crushing epic heavy metal. Composed and performed by Paul Kearns, Rich Walker, Andy Whittaker, Ian “Izak” Buxton and James Ashbey. But none of it would have been possible if it wasn’t for these three fine men and their hard work in support of ourselves -

Kerry Hughes at GN Studios, Huddersfield, England (Recording & Engineering)
Richard Whittaker at FX Mastering, London, England (Mixing & Mastering)
Chris Smith, of Grey Aria Design Studio, USA (Sleeve artwork)

You can listen to the title track on Gluetube, and once again we would encourage everyone to spread this video and a link to this page around facebook or whatever (Anti)social media they choose to do so –

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id73aXnhOM4

And for those of you wanting to have something for your ipods in advance of the physical release date, the digital version is now available to download for a modest fee on our bandcamp page. We’ll be announcing details of the Vinyl and Cassette in the next week or so as the final touches are made to the sleeve designs for both. As well as listing distributors around the globe where you will be able to purchase this release from

http://solstice-englander.bandcamp.com/album/deaths-crown-is-victory

Until then, we hail you all for your support, but especially we hail those valiant enough to stand strong and stand proud, NEVER SURRENDER!!

Musically, it's great, but I have to say, I don't think the new singer is a bad singer at all, but I much preferred the folky style of the vocalists on the previous albums. They were to me, as much Solstice's style as the riffs. Still excited about this, either way!

One of the rare times I will buy mp3s, since the CD will never be available basically. I will buy the tape however!

No doubt, the fella on New Dark Age is impossible to top.

This pisses all over the chips of most of the crappy black metal bands that get posted on here. Top notch, as expected.

This new song is fantastic. I was sceptical at how Kearns's vocals would work with Rich's riffs but I think he sounds incredible here. His old band, Arcane Sun, are something of an overlooked gem in the Irish scene. Their self-titled CD is a flawed masterpiece and their second unreleased album is also a flawed masterpiece! There was talk of both of them being re-released/released a few years ago but nothing yet...

Anyway, really looking forward to picking up the vinyl of this and hearing it through decent stereo speakers.
