Product Description

Product Description

Esoteric Antenna are pleased to announce the release of the new studio album by 80s Progressive Rock legends Solstice. In the 1980s Solstice were one of the leading lights of the UK Progressive scene. Still fronted by guitarist Andy Glass, and also featuring Steve McDaniel (keyboards), Robin Phillips (bass), Pete Hemsley (drums), Jenny Newman (violin) and Emma Brown (vocals), the band s iconic blend of soaring violin and guitar weaving around delicately passionate female vocals, underpinned by driving rhythmic complexity remains true and is much in force on Prophecy , their latest studio offering. This excellent album also features four bonus tracks, three of which are new remixes by Solstice aficionado Steven Wilson.

Young prog fans in the UK in the early 1980's had some good times. There were enough bands (Twelfth Night, Marillion, IQ, Pallas, Pendragon, Solstice etc.) to create a lively scene (which became known as 'neo-prog'), enthusiastic audiences, plenty of gigs in decent venues (The Marquee and The General Wolfe were my usual hunting grounds) and a sense of expectation that one or more of the bands would break into the big time. Personally speaking, I was also very lucky to have an indulgent mother who was brave enough to let a young teenager from the Midlands head off on his own to London and elsewhere to pursue his passion for music.

My favourite bands from that period were Twelfth Night (who released a really strong album called Fact and Fiction), IQ and Solstice. I saw these three bands more than any other. Solstice were a powerful live act with strong compositional skills and great musicianship throughout the band. In particular, I was a huge fan of their guitar player, Andy Glass, who specialised in truly epic solos. Whenever I got there early enough, I would pick a spot right in front of Andy so I could be close to the action as his soloing took flight (the poor bloke must have thought he had a stalker.) Andy's playing was one of the main reasons I picked up a guitar and started Big Big Train.

Despite many amazing gigs and a devoted following, commercial success never quite happened for Solstice. They made an album called Silent Dance but, despite the hard work of all who made it, the album didn't capture the power and majesty of the band at their best. One of their contemporaries, Marillion, went on to major success, and some of the other neo-prog bands were signed to decent labels, but Solstice fell behind and then fell apart.

Solstice are a wonderful band that I first saw supporting Marillion back in 1982. I remember thinking it was like Marillion were the new Genesis and Solstice were the new Yes! Many memorable live shows followed at the old Marquee in London....Fast forward to 2013 and the band have produced one of their best albums. Prophecy is right up there with my faves of the year plus a few tracks from their Silent Dance debut are included as remixed by Steven Wilson no less. For fans of prog with a folk edge, this album is a must.

Can't recommend this highly enough brilliant thoughtful piece of music. Superb guitar sound that soars through the classy songs with a hint of jazz and fusion within the overall rock/prog sound.
