• A 6 track double CD package from legendary US doom metal flagbearers Solitude Aeturnus featuring their first two classic full-length albums.

• CD1 features the cult debut ‘Into The Depths Of Sorrow’ originally released in 1991. CD2 features the acclaimed follow up ‘Beyond the Crimson Horizon’ originally released in 1992.

• With extensive liner notes from respected journalist Chris Chantler, with contributions from Ben Ward of Orange Goblin and Will Palmer of Angel Witch.

• Housed in a deluxe digipack this is a comprehensive document of one of doom metal’s top bands.

Solitude Aeturnus was founded in 1987 in Dallas, Texas, led by guitarist John Perez, heavily influenced by doom metal originators Candlemass, Trouble and of course Black Sabbath. Having recorded a couple of demos under the name Solitude, the band caught the attention of Roadrunner Records who signed them after the original label failed to release the first album.

Decibel Magazine inducted ‘Beyond The Crimson Horizon’ into its ‘Hall of Fame’ series, stating; “When I first heard ‘Beyond the Crimson Horizon’ in my high school Earth Sciences class, it was immediately striking. Strikingly different. Raw and almost unhinged in places.”

Louder acclaimed the album one of the ‘Top 10 Essential Doom Albums’; “Many prefer the perennially underrated Texans’ debut, but BTCH has a more stately grandeur and sonic elegance, the band zeroing in on myriad strengths: the celestial grace and power of singer Robert Lowe, the ethereal architecture of John Perez’s guitar, and the arcane lyrical narratives of bassist Lyle Steadham.”
