SOLSTICE: Video Footage From Recording Studio Posted Online

The reunited South Florida death/thrash metal band SOLSTICE entered the studio on September 18 to begin recording its new album for an early 2009 release. 11 songs are being laid down during the sessions, including a cover of an old song by the Miami progressive metallers CYNIC.

Commented SOLSTICE: "Drum tracks are in the can! We finished drums on the 19th and everything went great, Brian [Harris] did an amazing job as expected. We recorded at Refraze Studio in Dayton, Ohio with Ron Pease engineering... excellent facility and working with Ron was an absolute pleasure."

Video footage of Brian at work with snippets of each track can be viewed below.

SOLSTICE was formed in 1990 by guitarist Dennis Munoz and drummer Alex Marquez with vocalist/guitarist Rob Barrett (CANNIBAL CORPSE, ex-MALEVOLENT CREATION, HATEPLOW) and bassist Dave Smith. In 1991 they recorded a demo produced by legendary producer Jim Morris. In 1992, their debut album "The Sentencing" was recorded but due to internal problems the band broke up the following year. Barrett and Marquez would go on to join MALEVOLENT CREATION. In 1994 Munoz and Marquez played with a hardcore band called ANGER and in 1995 SOLSTICE was reformed with a new lineup. A second album titled "Pray" was released but they soon disbanded once again.

Current SOLSTICE lineup:

Christian Rudes: Guitars, vocals
Dennis Munoz: Guitars
Brian Harris: Drums
Garrett Scott: Bass
