  1. Further

    Further is the first full-length album from New Jersey heavy metal band Solace. This album's cover art was done by Heavy metal art veteran Wes Benscoter and is entitled "Midnight Mass 2". Recorded by Eric Rachel at Trax East Studios, Further was quickly hailed as an important addition to the independent Doom and Stoner Metal movements. Though comparisons were made to such genre bands as Goatsnake, The Obsessed and Cathedral, Further was considered by some darker than most works of the Stoner style, and was even compared to the likes of Black Sabbath, Tool, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains. Originally released in 2000, the US version featured 8 tracks, while the European version contained an additional 2 cover songs. A revamped version featuring these two additional songs was re-released in America in 2005.
