SOLITUDE (USA/TX)


Formed in the spring of 1987, Solitude. The line up began as darkened soul, John Perez, quit his former seminal thrash metal band Rotting Corpse in early ’87.  Already a long time follower of the Sabbath heavy sounds of early 80’s groups like Witchfinder General, St. Vitus, Black Hole, Nemesis and the like, Perez knew that the time was right to make a move into this art form known then as Doom Metal! Perez assembled a group of musicians over the next year namely; Brad Kane - Drums (an early 80’s Bay area thrasher metal brother!), Kris Gabehardt - vocals (previously with over the top Satanic death metal band Death Tripper), Tom Martinez - guitar and Chris Hardin - bass. After writing songs and rehearsing up until December of 1987, the band entered the studio in Jan 1988 to record their legendary 5 song demo entitled “Justice For All”. It should be noted that this title and demo preceded the Metallica album of the same name by some 7 months! The band would be forced to change the name to Solitude Aeturnus around 1988
