Enigmatic Icelandic heathen rock metallers Sólstafir are now revealing details of their forthcoming sixth album. Their new masterpiece, entitled “Berdreyminn“, will be released by Season of Mist and will be in stores on May 26th, 2017. The band has furthermore revealed the cover art by Adam Burke and track-list of “Berdreyminn“, which can be viewed below. Sólstafir are not like any other band. Their sixth album ”Berdreyminn” underscores this statement. As its title “a dreamer of forthcoming events” aptly describes, the four Icelanders have taken their already impressive evolution one step further. The band has continued to amalgamate haunting melodies, psychedelic phases, as well as strong undercurrents of classic rock and hard rock with echoes of their metal past. Yet Sólstafir’s focus is not on style but pure emotion. “Berdreyminn” is eclectic by a conscious choice to make feelings audible and transform taste as well as texture to sound. Genre borders are not broken but simply ignored. Musical influences are gathered from a wide range of sources, re-arranged, and woven into new patterns. Melancholy, longing, anger, joy, pleasure, pain, and other emotions are fuelling & fulling this album. “Berdreyminn” can be pre-ordered in their label’s official webstore in various formats. Sólstafir have also premiered the track “Ísafold” that you can listen below.
