Formed in 1994 Preston Thrash Metallers Solitary are possibly the best kept secret in Metal. Having released three albums through Copro Records their brand of modern Thrash Metal has gained them a loyal fan base on the UK’s underground scene, shows with Xentrix, Lawnmower Deth, Hirax, Re-Animator, Toranaga , D.A.M and Cerebral Fix. Proved they are more than a match to their 80’s counterparts.
Their 1998 debut release “Nothing Changes” was revered by many in the press stating that “It was as good as anything the Yanks could offer” and contained “Some of the best metal of the Nineties”. Solitary subsequently struck a deal with Copro Records which saw a reissue of “Nothing Changes” in 2004 followed up by “Requiem” in 2008 which displayed a much darker and sinister side of the band. In 2014 the live album “I Promise to Thrash Forever” was released to mark the band’s 20th anniversary which was funded in 21 days by a Pledge Music Campaign, Terrorizer streamed the whole album on their website and included a track on their cover mount CD for the third time in their career.
Solitary have also had tracks on the CDs of Zero Tolerance and Germany’s Legacy and have been given the accolade of KERRANG’s Local Hero’s last October, 2015 has seen appearances at Scotland’s Wildfire Festival, Preston’s RockPrest, Mosh against Cancer, Fear Fest and Leeds Thrashoholic Fest. They are also recording a new album “The Diseased Heart of Society” which will be produced and mixed by Simon Efemey who’s responsible for the Paradise Lost’s masterpieces “Icon” and “Draconian Times”.
