Solwaig
Biography
Solwaig has existed on Estonian music scape since January 2002. Being comparatively young band, you can`t say the same thing about the band members – all the musicians have been engaged (and some are still) in other famous Estonian metal-bands.

A lot of people have noticed Solwaig because of their imago. It`s very hard if not totally impossible to find any opponents from their native-land to contend with their imago.

Solwaig has also been noticed because of their tough metal-avalanche, which critics have classified as nu-metal. The fact is that Solwaig leaves no soul untouched – with every concert band finds more and more fanatical symphatisers and also antagonists.

In May 2002 the band recorded their first mini-EP called “Our Love Has Disappeared” in Arm Studio. Since the material got a very warm welcome among the local metalheads, the band received one concert offer after another. Solwaig`s stage debut took place at Hard Rock Laager festival, at the end of the year 2002 they also had a fantastic show at Green Christmas festival.

At the beginning of the year 2003 the band took part of the tv-show called “7 Vaprat” on Estonian National Television. With their song “Conditioned Love” they were in charts for five weeks and also made their big breakthrough by getting to the spring final show.

In August 2003 Solwaig started filming their first video “Freak Off the Leash”. Video director was Kristel Põld, it got ready in October same year and caused very ambivalented feelings in spectators.

In November, Solwaig started recording first full-lenght album in Guano Studio. The album “Uncharitable” was released January 17, 2004 and got very cordial welcome. The album was followed by many successful live-concerts in Tallinn, Tartu, Võru, etc… In the first week of February 2004, Radio Mania decided to choose Solwaig`s “Uncharitable” record of the week.
