Introduce Yourselves: BLACK SOLSTICE

What is the name of your band?

Black Solstice and we’re based in Stockholm, Sweden.

Magnus Lindmark – vocals and guitars

Peter Eklund – drums

Lelle B Falheim – bass guitar

Anders Martinsgård - guitars

What is the genre of music that you play?

We might perhaps have a foundation built on stoner rock/doom rock and such but we have expanded the horizon to a more hard rock/heavy rock approach. A bit of this and that so to say.

Can you give a brief history of the band of how it came together and where it is today?

Peter and Anders go back together many years as the musical foundation of Ponamero Sundown. And you might say that Black Solstice is what came next after that band disbanded. But it wasn’t really a straight path at all so to speak.

Magnus and Lelle joined in early 2019 and that was more or less the start of what Black Solstice is today. Things kind of went from there. The band recorded a couple of demos, then an ep which led to a deal with Ozium Records and Majestic Mountain Records.

Right now, we’re rehearsing a live set for some upcoming shows in 2022. And we will be starting to jam out some new material as well.

What can people expect from your music?

A lot of riffs and kind of upbeat music. The vocals are rather mid ranged and there are more details in the music than reaches the eye.

What is the best release that folks should check out from your band?

We just released our debut album Ember through Ozium Records. The vinyl version is handled by Majestic Mountain Records and will be released hopefully in the second quarter of 2022.
