Sólstafir are different. Their unique blend of metal with beautiful melodies, psychedelic moments and a strong undercurrent of classic / hard rock comes as varied and at times appealingly bizarre as the landscapes of their native Iceland. Their fifth full-length “Ótta” is the logical continuation of the musical course this four-piece adopted on the highly acclaimed forerunner “Svartir Sandar” (2011). Expect the unexpecded, such as seduction by subtle strings or a hypnotic banjo.
Sólstafir’s music is as much the product of Arctic blizzards as of red hot volcanic magma, erupting geysers, lush green pastures and salty waves. With “Ótta” the Icelanders touch something ancient and timeless, while defying easy categorization. This album needs to be heard again and again to peel back layers of details, each different and yet always revealing the same: great songs – all of them. Just lean back, close your eyes, take your time and lose yourself in this masterpiece.
