Solstice Coil\'s music blends the powerful sound and emotional charge of alternative bands such as Radiohead, Muse, The Mars Volta and Porcupine Tree, with the precise compositions and arrangements of classic prog bands such as Genesis, King Crimson and Yes, as well as influenced by modern prog and prog-metal groups Dream Theater, The Flower Kings, Pain of Salvation and Anekdoten. Despite all the influences, Solstice Coil’s music has a distinctive and unique style, the result of a mature band creating music together for over 6 years, uncompromisingly striving for excellence.
'A Prescription for Paper Cuts\' carries the vision of the band, providing a 50 minutes long journey through a mesmerizing world of lyrics, sound and melody. It is the product of two years of intensive composition, arrangement, selection of materials, recordings and performances. The album’s booklet contains 16 pages of graphic art by Opher Vishnia, including a graphic novel relating to the main concept of the album.
After performing in Europe, including a notable performance in Prog Resiste's annual festival at the Spirit of 66\', Solstice Coil returned home to commence work on the second album, yet untitled.
