Regnārs Breikšs Great sense of nostalgy kicked in when I noticed this release on Bandcamp.
I remembered the first time I got a hold of their 3rd album "Portraits Noires" when I was a youngster...damn, it was THE shit!
Still consider them being one of the best things that Latvia had to offer the world in this genre. And this particular album was the most mature of them all when it came to the song-writting and structure. Favorite track: WHY DO WOLVES HOWL I / WHY DO WOLVES HOWL II.

about

Solaris was formed in year 2005 and the first lineup consisted of three members – guitarist, bass guitarist and drummer. Passing time, three drummers changed the lineup of Solaris. In the mentioned time, the band was joined by two guitarists and a vocalist who manages modulations and keys. The band has recorded four full lenght albums. Two of them are self released. In year 2007 the third album “Portraits Noires” was released under the russian record label ''Old School Kids records''. The material for “The Truth Can Only Be Learned By Marching Forward” was recorded in ''Hodila'' studio with Girts Laumanis, who's worked with such known Latvian bands as Tesa and Soundarcade. The sound of Solaris has changed since “Portraits Noires”, so the new record sounds more massive and powerful. The sound is heavier, colder and darker. In general, Solaris is a dark, atmospheric and avant-garde post rock/post metal band with a mixture of electronic flow all over it.
