July is Solitude Month


This month, Solitude Productions celebrates reaching its 10th birthday, having started in the July of 2005 to promote the then-young and often-ignored Russian Doom underground. Having brought us over two hundred releases, including the BadMoodMan Music and other sublabels, since then, Solitude has become an integral part of the scene which we all support, and would like to offer our most sincere congratulations to Evgeny, Sergey and Anton for their hard work and dedication over the past decade.

In support of this, we would like to draw your attention to a variety of Solitude-related items:
- We have run a competition, in cooperation with Solitude, to win some extremely cool prizes. Congratulations to our winner, forum member gareve.
- The site radio is hosting an exclusively Solitude playlist, including a preview of the forthcoming Fallen album. Find it here.
- Find the brief history of Solitude here.
- Check out our 'five years on' interview with Evgeny here.
- And see our new 10th birthday interview with the Solitude team here.

Meanwhile, Solitude have run their own photo-competition: take a look at the winners here.

2015-07-15 : Interview with Paradise Lost
It is logical, for a website named, to say that a lot of us are fans of Paradise Lost and that the debt our favourite genre owns to the English band is huge. Yet, the band has departed from Doom a lot of times since 'Draconian Times' was released. However, since the release of the self-titled album in 2005, various hints were letting us suppose that PL was slowly coming back to the doom and gloom of their early days. Such is finally the case with 'The Plague Within' and we took the time to have a chat with Nick Holmes (vocals) about how this came to be.
