Solitude Aeturnus was formed under the name of only Solitude in 1987 by the frontman and
guitarist John Perez. They played shows around the Dallas area in Texas before releasing
their debut album "Into The Depths Of Sorrow" in 1991. Their original label King Classic
was unfortunately forced to end their activities soon after the release but Solitude was
offered a new deal with Roadrunner Records. Their third album "Through the Darkest Hour"
gave them the chance to tour with the legendary Mercyful Fate, one of the most important
influences on the band. Their sixth album was first planned to be recorded in March 2001
but due to Wolf's shoulder injury and Perez being occupied as a tour manager for Electric
Wizard and Warhorse it has been postponed to some time between June and July.
You can also catch the band doing a cover of Maiden's "Hallowed Be Thy Name" on A Call
To Irons: A Tribute To Iron Maiden and they are on Legend of a Madman: A Tribute to Ozzy
Osborne and the compilation album Unebrochen Various Artist Sampler as well as the
brand new release of the Ronnie Dio tribute "Holy Dio". And, I am not
exactly sure of the title but I believe the band also appears on a recent Judas
Priest tribute release...I will find the details soon.
Robert , Wolf and Steve have joined with James Martin to create Concept of God.
I have seen CoG live at Sanctuary in Arlington and while having developed a
unique sound that is the band holds up to the expectations of SA fans.
Point is...Concept of God kicks ass! Rumors are that the band hopes to record soon.

Lyle's new band Ghoultown is straight from the Twilight Zone! I really didn't know what
to think about it at first and all I can say is that I still don't know what
to think about it, but I can't get enough. Check out Ghoultown MP3's at the
official Ghoultown site at www.ghoultown.com.
