Solstafir announce new album ‘Endless Twilight of Codependent Love,’ share “Akkeri”
Icelandic post-rock/post-black metal greats Sólstafir have announced that they'll follow 2017's Berdreyminn with their seventh album, Endless Twilight of Codependent Love, on November 6 via Season of Mist (pre-order). Like their last two albums, they made it with producer Birgir Jón Birgisson (Sigur Ros, Alcest, Bjork), and the first single is the ten-minute opening track "Akkeri." It finds Sólstafir embracing their hard rock side, with just a hint of black metal instrumentation thrown in, and it eventually evolves into climactic post-rock. It's cool stuff and you can listen and watch the album trailer below.
