Behind the curious moniker of Solar Mass (in astronomy, the solar mass is a unit of measurement used to indicate the mass of the stars and various bigger space objects like the galaxies) there is a trio coming from New Zealand, a small land nowadays famous for 3 of some more devastating war-machines of the extreme metal: Witchrist, Heresiarch and Diocletian. Coincidentally, B.S. plays both in Diocletian and Solar Mass. Besides, this young band formed in 2015 in Auckland had the good fortune to be supported by Rok of the seminal Aussie band Sadistik Exekution, so just he made the Voivod-ish cover artwork of the very first demo of Solar Mass, “Pseudomorphosis”. And so, the German label Iron Bonehead Productions is distributing recently this demo in a tape printed in 500 copies.
