Solstafir stream new album Berdreyminn in full


Icelandic post-rock stalwarts Solstafir are premiering their new album Berdreyminn exclusively with Metal Hammer, ahead of its release date on May 26 via Season Of Mist.

Berdreyminn is Solstafir’s sixth studio album and their first without drummer and founding member Guðmundur Óli Pálmason. Over the past two months, the band have been drip-feeding new tracks from the album including Ísafold,Bláfjall and Silfur-Refur.

“Finally, the time has come to present you Berdreyminn in its entirety,” says frontman Aðalbjörn “Addi” Tryggvason. “Hopefully, the previous pieces that we have released will now fall into their rightful places in the puzzle that this album represents.

“There is much to explore, surprises to discover, as well as meeting old friend again, and we sincerely hope that you will like what you find.”

Berdreyminn is out May 26, via Season Of Mist, and is available to order now.
