Just last week, Iceland’s Sólstafir absolutely floored me (and hundreds of other fans) with their performance at the 12th  edition of Maryland Deathfest. Hot on the heels of that trump, Season of Mist has just announced that the band will be releasing a new album named Ótta on August 29 in Europe and September 2 in North America.

According to the press release, “As the name suggests, Ótta will include eight songs, which titles will be unveiled later in June.” Pre-orders will start at the SoM e-shop (here) on June 10.

And that’s about all I have to say about that.  I have to go now and change my shorts.


  1. This needs to grace the awesome format that is vinyl.

  2. Shweet. Timing makes it so that it may be my soundtrack to entering UChicago. I suppose that would frighten people less than, say, some gorenoise.

  3. I love your site, but have in general kept quiet, because I’m not that knowledgeable about metal, but I just have to thank you for Solstafir, a band I found through you. Fuck yeah are they great or what? They encompass everything I like about metal and pop at the same time. Should be impossible, but they still seem extremely real, releasing records and all. Like real persons.
