Of all the major alternative rock bands of the early '90s, SMASHING PUMPKINS were the group least influenced by traditional under ground rock.
Lead guitarist/songwriter Billy Corgan fashioned an amalgam of progressive rock, heavy metal, goth rock, psychedelia, and dream pop, creating a layered, powerful sound driven by swirling, distorted guitars. SMASHING PUMPKINS became the model for alternative rock success.
THE SOLSTICE BARE is the second chapter in the Smashing Pumpkins long-awaited 44-song concept album (After the release of TEARGARDEN BY KALEIDYSCOPE VOL. 1 - RSV006 in May 2010).
