Solace in Black was formed in 2004 when Dale Puckett and Andy Conniff, original members of Aggression Core (Peak Records), wanted to start a new project.
Now in 2010, Solace in Black has a solid fan-base and has developed a unique sound within the metal genre. Dark in tone, with music that ranges from melodic to bludgeoning, they incorporate skill in ability and songwriting with emotionally charged lyrics and riffs.
Singer and lyricist Jeff Gerstbrein says that he writes songs that everyone should be able to relate to. “I try not to write about things that I haven’t experienced myself. I don't write about killing people or slaying dragons. Every song is something I've lived through.” From the emotional turmoil of being fed-up with a loved-one in “10 Steps” to dealing with the mental instability of a family member in “Thorazine” to disgust with religious corruption in “Forsaken”.
