We are proud to declare that on June 21, 2011 (the Summer Solstice) our second album Natural Causes will finally be officially released!
We had spent most of 2010 communicating and negotiating with different record labels and distribution companies from around the world. After considering all of our options, we decided to work with Orlando, Fl’s Melodic Revolution Records on distributing and promoting the album.
Natural Causes was recorded in part, mixed and mastered at Bardo Studios, one of the most renowned recording studios in Israel. In this album we are joined by a rhythm section comprised of master musicians Yaniv Shalev and Yatziv Caspi (Yuval Ron and Residents of the Future) as well as a string quartet featured in two songs.
The physical album insert features a poster of magnificent artwork created by digital artist Vitaly S. Alexius, with design by our own Opher Vishnia. The highly-detailed artwork includes imagery and symbols from the lyrics of different songs on Natural Causes, creating a giant multi-conceptual collage.
Natural Causes will be distributed in all of the popular digital media outlets such as iTunes, AmazonMP3 and Rhapsody and in selected stores around the world.

If all goes well, Solstice Coil's second album, 'Natural Causes', will be mastered this Friday, finally concluding our latest musical journey. The album will be mastered at Bardo Studios, by our good friend Erez Caspi, who also lend us a hand with mixing the album (and did an excellent job, btw).
We've been through a lot in the four years that followed the release of our first album, 'A Prescription for Paper Cuts'. We've grown up, got to play some gigs abroad, learned a few valuable lessons and had to part ways with founding members of the band.
Most of the songs on the album have been appearing on the demo on our music section for nearly two years. Still, I believe you're in for a surprise. Our songwriting style has eveloved, but we've managed to stick to the more important principles we set out for ourselves with Paper Cuts. The new sound and Yatziv's drumming on the album (instead of the VST we used on the demo) really make a difference.
We're not releasing the album right away - now starts the hunt for a proper label.
After a long process of writing, arranaging and recording, work on the second Solstice Coil album Natural Causes is nearly complete! Yesterday we visited the Eyal Amir Studio for the last time and recorded the very last guitar part needed for this album. The songs are already being mixed by Shai, so it won't be long before the album is ready!
Now comes the hard part: we are looking for a distribution deal of some sort. As much as we enjoy being a DIY band, there are some things we simply can't do on our own. So we turn to you, our faithful listeners: if you know anybody who knows anyone who might be connected to someone interested in distributing our high-end alternative-progressive rock, let us know!
