A masterpiece indeed

If my memory is right, I remember that Sólstafir was a Black Metal combo from Iceland, but as I hear this album I'm pretty sure we can't call this Black Metal. That's good because the grim, nekro, kvlt market is so saturated nowadays that when I receive any release I just pray to find something new and original within the disc.

Amazing stuff. Sounds like a huge change in their sound and in vocals from their debut. A change for the better IMO.

Totally agree, this album marked their change towards a more Post-Metal/Atmospheric approach. I love this album, too bad it's quite underrated...
