Sólstafir stream second new song “Bláfjall”


SÓLSTAFIR are now revealing the second heavy rocking track taken from their forthcoming sixth full-length. The new masterpiece of the enigmatic Icelanders is entitled ‘Berdreyminn’, which means a “dreamer of forthcoming events” and will be released on May 26th.

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.”
