Solarus is a Canadian Symphonic Metal effort hailing from London Ontario, Canada. Lucas McArthur (Guitarist), Sarah Dee (Vocalist), Nich Longe (Drummer) and Mark Feeney (Bass) form the group that drives the creative process of Solarus.
Their first full length album, ‘Reunion’ was a conceptual album about a man’s journey through grieving and his spiritual search for his departed wife. The lyrical story was largely inspired by a tragedy that had befallen the album’s writer’s (McArthur) family several years prior.
The album was released early 2017 and was met with extremely positive reviews and even better reception. It was produced, mixed and mastered by Sean Dowell and even featured guest vocal spots from Borealis’ Matt Marinelli, who, in a joined effort with Sarah Dee, helped tell the tragic story from the perspectives of both the living and the departed.
The band’s line-up is growing with their newest addition, Mark Feeney on bass. Back in the studio recording their new album, Darkest Days, set to be released in early 2019, Solarus is continuing to forge its path.
