In Solitude

In Solitude

It’s not often that a band from overseas comes to play Dayton, but that rule will be broken a week from today when Sweden’s In Solitude take the stage at McGuffy’s before a crowd of unsuspecting Daytonians. In Solitude could be considered part of what some critics are calling the “new wave of traditional heavy metal,” a movement of younger bands going for a sound that resembles classic heavy metal of decades past. In Solitude pays homage to metal legends such as Mercyful Fate and Iron Maiden with a singer who croons like the love child of King Diamond and Glenn Danzig. But what sets this band apart from their traditional heavy metal contemporaries is that they spike these old-school sounds with a dark, gothic vibe that gives their music an unusual appeal. In Solitude is touring in support of their new album The World. The Flesh. The Devil. on Metal Blade Records, and will open for Down (featuring Phil Anselmo from Pantera) at McGuffy’s House of Rock next Tuesday, September 20. McGuffy’s is located at 5418 Burkhardt Road in Dayton. Doors open at 7 p.m., showtime at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 at the door. For more information, visit www.mcguffys.net.
