It was not long ago that I discovered Sólstafir, who come from the cold plains of Iceland. When I first heard their name I thought they were a pure black/viking metal band, which, at least based on their latest two efforts, is terribly wrong. I decided to give them a listen eventually, and hell it wasn't a mistake at all. I just pity myself that I missed out on them for so long.

Rating: 9 I saw that band live (along with Mar De Grises and Swallow The Sun) and I have to admit I didn't like it much. but it sounds better on cd.

I've never really given that one a go, only this one and Masterpiece of Bitterness. I'll definitely have a listen before I see them at Hellfest though.
