British doom metal veterans SOLSTICE have officially split up. Here is a statement on the matter from band mainman/guitarist Rich Walker:“After 12 years of the band we decided to call it quits last week, the reason being myself and [bassist] Chaz both felt we had become restricted by the bands 'doom' reputation, and were being hindered in playing what we truly wanted to. As of now until the foreseeable future SOLSTICE is officially inactive. However, in a few years, we may regroup if we see the need to? For the future, Chaz and [vocalist] Moz will be putting a new band together in the MOTORHEAD vein which will of course be loud, drunk and chaotic. “I myself will concentrate on my label The Miskatonic Foundation which is beginning to grow and take up more of my time, and my own new band TYRANT which is once again epic battle metal. Joining me will be Roberto and singer Anthony and we are currently looking for a drummer and bassist. Interested parties can e-mail me or write to the new address – P.O. Box 599, Huddersfield, Hd5 0xd, England.”
