Solarized are a stoner group coming from New Jersey, USA. They were formed by Jim Hogan (vox,guitar) and Regina Satan (drums) from the ashes of Daisycutter. Lou Gorra (bass, he formed Halfway To Gone afterwards ) and Pete Hauschild (guitar) joined in too, completing the band's line-up. "Eight Ways to Sunday" EP was the first work they released in 1998. In 1999 their first full album "Neanderthal Speedway" was ready. In three of the songs Tim Cronin and Ed Mundell from Monster Magnet were invited as guests. Generally, the album's sound is close to early-Monster Magnet material.
In 1999, Pete Hauschild left the band and Solarized recruited Lee Stuart. But soon enough, Lou Gorra and Stuart left the band too. They were quickly replaced by Mike Fiore and Dave Topolenski. With this line-up they released their second full album "Driven" in 2001. Overall there isn't anything new in their music, just some awesome high-energy stoner rock with ample fatty riffs and fuzzed-out guitars. Generally if you're a fan of the genre then you're going to like them (a lot).
