Solstafir: Berdreyminn

Berdreyminn is the new Season of Mist release from Iceland's Solstafir, an 8 song opus that sees the band diving even deeper into their brand of melancholy post rock. Completely sung in their native tongue, from a lyrical perspective the album might be a tad hard to initially get into for some, but once you get past the language barrier, there are some rich, vintage hard rock tones to be found throughout the album, Solstifir relying on classic tube amps and equipment to create their sound. From the moody opener "Silfur-Refur", the twin guitar harmonies of the Wishbone Ash influenced "safold", the atmospheric "Hula", all the way to the poignant melodies and searing lead guitar of "Drafjrur", this album is all about tones, textures, and colors rather than bombast. That however might be a drawback to some listeners, as much of Berdreyminn kind of plods along at a similar pace and lacks variety, but if post rock dripping with mournful melancholy and haunting melodies is your thing, there's plenty to dig into here. And, who can resit that gorgeous cover art, which perfectly portrays the entire tone of this album.
