SÓLSTAFIR comment on the video: "The album cycle of 'Ótta' is coming to a close with a third and final video for the song, 'Dagmál'. The live footage for this clip was shot over the course of 18 months of heavy touring. The video features our newest band member, Hallgrímur 'Grimsi' Hallgrímsson, who started filling in behind the kit in April 2015."

On further news, Season of Mist are proud to announce the re-signing of SÓLSTAFIR. The band states: "With our previous contract coming to an end, we have had plenty of great offers on the table for which we are grateful. Yet, why should we end a good thing? The entire team works brilliantly together and everyone involved decided that continuing is the logical step moving forward."

Yesterday also marked the start of the third week of SÓLSTAFIR recording their new album. Vocalist and guitarist Aðalbjörn "Addi" Tryggvason comments on behalf of the band: "We are back here at Sundlaugin for the third time to record our seventh album. We feel right at home and after being locked up in songwriting mode for two months, it is a one of a kind feeling hearing the demos gaining life. We have fourteen songs recorded, including one cover version, but at the moment it is too early to tell what will end up on the album. The new album will definitely sound like SÓLSTAFIR and as always, there will be surprises too."

'Ótta' can still be ordered in various formats from the Season of Mist shop.

Tue, Nov 29 2016: NIDINGR

Upcoming release: "The High Heat Licks Against Heaven"

Release date US: Fri, Feb 10 2017

Norwegian metal extremists NIDINGR have released the first track off their forthcoming album, 'The High Heat Licks Against Heaven', which will be out in stores on February 10th.

The track titled "Surtr" is now officially streaming via Decibel Magazine.

The cover artwork for 'The High Heat Licks Against Heaven' (illustrated by Valnoir/Metastazis) and track list are revealed below.

  1. Hangaguð
  2. Surtr
  3. The Ballad of Hamther

  5. Gleipnir
  6. Sol Taker
  7. Ash Yggdrasil
  8. Valkyries Assemble
  9. Heimdalargaldr
  10. Naglfar Is Loosed

Regarding the new album, founder Teloch comments: "For NIDINGR, making an album is a very personal and honest thing that takes a toll on everyone involved. We must be true to an idea and execute it. We do not fuck around. As usual NIDINGR experiments with new elements on this album too. The goal was to simplify things without losing quality and still keep the elements that NIDINGR is known for, which is a challenge by itself. 'The High Heat Licks Against Heaven' is rawer and "in your face", emphasizing the blistering speed and heaviness, which makes it even more extreme. The 7-string guitar is still a big part of the NIDINGR sound, as it has been since the first full album in 2005. As always this is the best NIDINGR album to date."

'The High Heat Licks Against Heaven' can now be pre-ordered in various formats from the Season of Mist shop.

  1. Gaia
  2. Benzaiten
  3. Jove
  4. Sum
  5. Elpis
  6. Paradise
  7. Samsara

Regarding their track, VIPASSI comment: "Our song 'Jove' is a meditation on religion and dogma, its separation from faith, its effect on our history and perception of morality, and ultimately, the corruption and conflict it begets. Faith at its core, is a beautiful thing, which over time, has been clouded by crooked and misguided credo. This song is a counterpoint to 'Benzaiten', our previous track's themes of knowledge and science, and how these things can be at odds with the obtuse nature of organized religion."
