Solace offer up a sonic brew of bottom heavy stoner rock, with doom stylings in the vein of Count Raven and Grand Magus.
I really enjoy this sound of late and Solace does a decent job pulling it off. Sabbath rumblings punctuate songs like "Indolence" and "Once Around The Sun". Other tracks like "King Alcohol" remind me of The Obsessed somewhat. The guitar sound is a bit too fuzzy for my tastes however, but I'm sure stoner fans will dig this sound.
Some guest vocals are laid down by Wino, of Spirit Caravan fame. If you are in the mood for whiskey bent, no frills, attitude rock, here's your chance. Nice album cover as well!!
