Mind teasing and bending. Lots of unexpected turns and twists.

3.5 greatcharlie6026961 | October 12th 14

The somber, reverent passages move me the most on this album. The opening is brilliantly patient, and Rism?l is probably one of the best songs I've heard this year. I love that this is post-rock informed by metal, and it sounds raw, even fearless, without being abrasive. My only reservation is that it sounds too close to pop in a few spots across the album, and really they only get away with it because they're from Iceland. Regardless, this is a gorgeous work by masters of the craft.

4.5 superbTheAristocrat96 | September 29th 14

Another great album by Solstafir. I think it might beat Svartir Sandar for my favourite album of theirs.

4.5 superbSacredSerenity | February 18th 15

Being an atmospheric masterpiece, Otta is a fascinating trip through the Icelandic landscape - or whatever you will imagine.

If all else fails, just go Post-Rock.rThey could've done a lot more with the sound of K?ld/MoP. r
