The awesome Icelandic band that isn't Sigur Ros or Bjork have an album out in less then a month and this is the first I'm hearing about it? Shame on you!

Svartir Sandar


Apparently it's a double album, which is potentially awesome. Köld was really grandiose, and I think they could do with a bit of leg room. All of the songs seem to be in Icelandic too, unlike the last two. I was never big into their lyrics anyway, so I'm not that bothered.

Seems they're gonna continue the whole viking cowboy vibe judging from the cover-art.

First single: http://www.season-of-mist.com/common/downloads/Solstafir/solstafir-fjara.mp3

A bit calmer than I'd like, but definitely solid material. I'm actually liking the female backing vocals.

There's also some crappy YT recordings of another track they've been playing live: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bIEhe9LlYw

I have a feeling the album version will sound great.

Don't think I've ever even heard of this band.

I'm not even going to bother with AR's antics. But this needs to be remedied ASAP.

Three LPs and an EP. All are fucking amazing.

I'll check that stuff out later today.

I'm still a bit of n00b when it comes to black metal.

Then start with Köld and Masterpiece of Bitterness. Only the first two releases are clear cut BM.

Great band, MoB is by far my favorite but Kold is excellent as well. Will be looking forward to this.
