Icelandic metallers Sólstafir are just a few months away until they release their upcoming album, Berdreyminn, on May 26 via Season of Mist. We already heard the band promising it will be worse than 2014’s Ótta and listened to the atmospheric “Ísafold” tune not too long ago. Today, the band unleashed another new track, “Bláfjall.”
Sólstafir frontman Aðalbjörn Tryggvason spoke to Terrorizer about the new tune:
“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.”
