Solitude Productions




Russia - Active.

Description

Undefinable

The Solitude Productions label was founded in July 2005 for promotion of mainly Russian doom metal varying within a wide range from traditional to funeral doom. The reason for label foundation lies behind the fact that many underground bands within doom metal frames create excellent music, but experience problems with finding the label, because no so many labels are interested in the style. Besides that, a significant part of material issued under doom metal trade mark actually is not (offering variations of gothic metal and melodic death metal), and the label (together with doom-metal.ru website supported by the same team) aims for providing correct information about the style as it is. Founders Evgeny Semenov and Sergey Terentjev started the label in Moscow, with the SP.001 1000-copy re-release of Океан Печали - Таинство Зимы (Ocean Of Sorrow - Mysteries Of Winter). For various reasons, it relocated to the nearby city of Orel in 2008. Ocean Of Sorrow went on to become Revelations Of Rain, and are still releasing through the label. Among the achievements of the label within the period passed since the foundation one can outline that Solitude Productions signed for the first time in Russia a Russian funeral doom band, (Intaglio), and a sludge doom band (Heavy Lord). The label promoted not only new Russian bands, but also young talented bands from former Soviet republics: Belarus (Reido), Ukraine (Somnolent, Autumnia) and Latvia (Frailty). Solitude Productions is also known for re-releases of classical albums which played an important role in formation of Russian doom metal scene (Ocean of Sorrow, Painful Memories). This series of re-releases was also extended to several classical funeral doom releases by Evoken, Funeral which original releases were sold out and became a rare stuff. As well as remaining true to the Russian scene, Solitude has continued to expand its roster as far afield as Brazil (Abske Fides) and Australia (Orphans Of Dusk), and more locally taken in bands from, amongst others, the Czech Republic (Et Moriemur), Finland (Astral Sleep) and Germany (Ophis). At its fifth birthday, the catalogue number had reached SP.036, with Russian band The Sullen Route. Five years on from that, it's at SP.105 (Sweden's Sorrowful) and still climbing, and the label has acquired a social and publicity officer, in the shape of Anton Granko, to help manage the day-to-day workload.
