Mon, Mar 27 2017: SÓLSTAFIR

Upcoming release: "Berdreyminn"

Release date: Fri, May 26 2017, US Fri, May 26 2017

SÓLSTAFIR have revealed the second heavy rocking track taken from their forthcoming full-length 'Berdreyminn'. The new masterpiece of the enigmatic Icelanders will be released on May 26th.

The song "Bláfjall" is now exclusively streaming via the official premiere partners listed below.

SÓLSTAFIR frontman Aðalbjörn Tryggvason comments in a personal statement: "The meaning of 'Bláfjall' is blue – as in a black, black mountain, and it revolves around man's battle against his own mind and those inner demons that often lead to self-destruction and harming one's loved ones. I have myself struggled with alcoholism and it remains a never-ending battle and continuously walking further up a mountain in foggy darkness. But this is also about hope, because there is a way out, but you have to grab that rope when it comes swinging towards you and hold on to it as tight as you can. Everybody can end up lost on the black mountain, or 'Bláfjall' in this case."

SÓLSTAFIR have already released the cover art by Adam Burke and track-list of 'Berdreyminn', which can both be viewed below.

Regarding this tour, legendary MAYHEM vocalist Attila Csihar commented: "The first time I ever heard from Mayhem was in '91-'92 when I received a letter from Euronymous. I did not know that message was going to change my whole life. They were looking for a new vocalist to replace Dead on their debut album. Of course, I agreed to their offer and in 1993 we recorded 'De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas', which to me remains one of the most magical albums of all time. The music opened some unfathomable dimensions that reached beyond what we were able to handle and it unleashed a complete chaos, which ended up at burning churches and eventually a murder within the band. It was almost impossible to release that record, but when it finally came out under the sun in '94, it left a lasting impact on the whole metal scene. The so-called "2nd wave of black metal" was born in the cold and dark underground of Oslo. At the same time MAYHEM collapsed and got burned down as well. From those ashes, the band had to rise again, when MAYHEM reunited with some old and new members. Yet that album always remained so strong and so unique that even after my reunion with MAYHEM in 2004, we were still not comfortable to present it live in full. Time passed and the whole band got stronger and more experienced. In 2016 we suddenly felt that it was time to finally play the whole record in order to unleash That Beast after more than two decades. 'De Mysteriis Dom Sathans' will soon become alive!"
