World Metal is an open letter to metal conventions. It reads thus: HA!

The tracklist looks like a collection of songs from the Donkey Kong Country OSTs.

This album is fantastic. Really weird, but really great. Just listen to the first track to get an idea of what they mean with "World Metal". It has got passages of heavy metal, classical music, club music and both nordic and african folk music. Sometimes combined. Setting the bar high for the rest of the year, for sure.

There's some really cool throwbacks to their discography in this record, I particularly can get the sort of neonism vibe from this record.
Definitely not for everyone, but for the Solefald hardcore this is the shit, and I guess it has the chance to tickle the fancy of people into weird experimental music.

"String The Bow Of Sorrow" is just beautiful and very Solefaldish/Solefaldic!
Strange album, it needs more time I guess.

I agree with someone above saying this is a really random and weird album. Makes me think of SOAD for some reason, with the exception that SOAD are a lot more radio orientated. I kinda like this, but it's still one of the weirdest albums i've ever heard.

These guys are back in their prime. The sense of ambition on this album is suffocating. I absolutely love it.

Got these guys a bit abandoned, but very interested in checking what they did here. Must find some streaming or blind-buy the thing.

Anyone else noticed that tongue-in-cheek tribute to the song Metropolis by Seigmen at 3:19?

Also, can't bloody wait for my LP-box containing norrøn livskunst, Kosmopolis sud+nord to arrive in the mail!

Spinned it twice and it's rather good. The opener is probably my favorite Solefald now, it's that good. Bububu Bad Beuys is ridiculously fun too However, the second half is not up to the level is the first few tracks, which is a bit of a shame.

This is great, really.

Strange. I remember listening to Solefald and thinking "wow, this sucks" I wonder what was wrong with me..?
