Solstafir release new track Bláfjall


Solstafir have released a stream of their new track Bláfjall.

It’ll feature on the Icelandic outfit’s upcoming sixth album Berdreyminn, which is out on May 26 via Season Of Mist.

Guitarist and vocalist Addi Tryggvason tells Terrorizer: “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.”

Solstafir will head out on a 15-date European tour this summer in support of the follow-up to 2014 Ótta and previously released a stream of Ísafold.
