Description

Epic Doom

Old-school, arcane and epic doom metal with a NWOBHM feel to it (earlier work). One of the bigger bands within the Epic Doom genre, creating very powerful Doom truly worthy of the term Epic. Solstice evokes a true metal-warrior type of image and feel within their music. Grand epic Battle Doom that will appeal to any fan of this style. Solstice recently reformed after having disbanded for a while. It is reported that the new sound is even more Epic than before, losing the NWOBHM influences, creating Epic Doom in its purest form!
