SÓLSTAFIR Make New Track ‘Bláfjall’ Available For Streaming
March 22nd, 2017

Reykjavik, Iceland-based rock band Sólstafir have made the track ‘Bláfjall’ available for streaming through YouTube, which can be accessed below.

Frontman Aðalbjörn Tryggvason commented: “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.”

Sólstafir issue sixth full-length studio album Berdreyminn on May 26th, 2017 through Season Of Mist.

The cover artwork was created by Adam Burke.
