Just a brief update as we get quite a lot of emails from you asking us for the next SOLEMNITY album. Well, the recordings are almost done except for some little things that are left to do, so we plan to release it this Autumn:-)

The album will be called CIRCLE OF POWER and will start right there where we left you with LOTD and the artwork is again by our good friend Ferenc B. Regös. More will be unveiled in the next two months right here!

While we are recording the new Solemnity album Sven The Axe & Harry Reischmann together with former Stormwitch musicians just released their prog-metal side-project DORIAN OPERA on Solemnity-Music. If you like Symphony X, Shadow Gallery or early Dream Theater get hold on this CD which you can exclusively buy here in the shop.

The song "Tanz in den Tod" by our former drummer PT Lerf and Sven The Axe which we recorded for the DRAGONBOUND series for SONY is now available for free download on the FACEBOOK site.

SONY decided not to make any commercial effort of it, but to give it away for free to our fans:-) ENJOY!!!

SOLEMNITY news: We decided to skip the promised CD with unreleased stuff from the past decade as our videoclip producer has gone to India for a while with our unfinished videoclip of " A Grave Mistake", but we wanted that to be a part of it so thios release will come out somewhen 2012. Instead as our songwriting for our fifth CD is finished we enter the studio in December to start working on "THE CIRCLE OF LIGHT" which will hopefully see the light of day before Summer 2011.

We changed some of the prices in our online-shop, so all you cheesy bootleggers have a good reason to buy something for a bloody Christmas:-)

Last week was the release date of the new SONY Entertainment audio-book DRAGONBOUND 5 and YES we are proud to be a part of it!!! The first ever song by Sven the Axe in German language called "Tanz in den Tand" (english: "Dance into Death" ) was a part of this epic fantasy drama!!!

While we are writing songs for our fifth album to come we wanted to tell you the news that we plan to release at the end of this year an album with partly new material, recently old unreleased stuff and some covers plus a videoclip of our new song "A Grave Mistake". More infos to follow soon!

Moreover here is a link to the page of great fan of ours, Jon Zaremba from the United States, who made a tremendous work in making an awesome videoclip to our song "The Book Of Eibon" which we originally dedicated to the legacy of the horror movie director Lucio Fulci. This is an awesome collage with pictures of the master who fit perfectly to our soundtrack. Thanxxx a lot & All the be(a)st to Jon Zaremba!! You can watch it directly on his homepage under the link::

Now we've at last started our guestbook. It's moderated - this means that our webmaster has to activate every single entry. So it can last up to 24h until an entry is online. We have made this decision after careful consideration, because of badly experience with spam flooding in the past.

But now: Leave us a message in our guestbook.

And as you can see, we've changed the concept of our website to improve the readability. By the way the 'badly torn view' at screen resolutions bigger than 1024 x 768 pixel should have been solved. So we hope it works for you all. If you find any bugs or broken links please feel free to send us a message.
