Sólstafir temporarily joined by Árstíðir keyboarder Ragnar Ólafsson on European tour


When SÓLSTAFIR asked their friends and label mates, ÁRSTÍÐIR to join them on their current European tour, the Icelanders had of course no strings attached. As it turns out, there are some keys in it though…

ÁRSTÍÐIR keyboarder Ragnar Ólafsson has happily accepted to give a helping hand or rather two to the enigmatic Icelandic rockers. This is of course a temporary arrangement, so don’t miss your chance to see this special touring line-up on the road right now.

As shows have already been sold out and tickets are running low in others venues, we strongly recommend to book in advance.

Sólstafir enter the international album charts with ‘Berdreyminn’


SÓLSTAFIR have entered the album charts in several countries in the first week after ‘Berdreyminn’ was released worldwide on May 26th. It is actually hard to overstate the massive achievement of a band coming from a volcanic island close to the arctic circle in the North Atlantic midway between Europe and America that sings in Icelandic and that has evolved a highly original style of music very much their own. Excluding the multiple high scores in digital charts across all platforms worldwide and focusing on physical charts, these are the album’s current results (with expected top positions from their native Iceland and other countries still missing):

Finland #20 National album charts

France #121 National charts
France #2 Metal charts

Germany #30 National album charts

Sweden #8 Vinyl charts
Sweden #18 Hardrock charts

Switzerland #42 National charts

UK #39 – Top 100 independent album chart
UK #24 – Top 40 rock/metal album chart

Season of Mist congratulates SÓLSTAFIR for their well-deserved success!

Frontman Aðalbjörn Tryggvason commented on behalf of SÓLSTAFIR: “Videos have always been a medium that we are taking seriously. Therefore, we have worked with excellent visual artists like Bowen Staines and Vesa Ranta on previous clips. We are privileged to have been able to enlist the team of Nico Poalillo and Peter Beste to create the imagery for ‘Silfur-Refur’. They have directed and produced a video that beautifully illustrates our song – at least in our minds. We are giving Nico and Peter our heartfelt thanks for their amazing contribution to our musical vision. The video’s meaning is a puzzle, which we are leaving for you to solve as we don’t want to spoil your imagination spinning stories of its own. We sincerely hope that you enjoy ‘Silfur-Refur’ as much as we do.”
