Endless Twilight of Codependent Love - Track by Track on Apple Music
Packed with tales of murder, suicide, and revenge, the seventh album from Icelandic metal cowboys Sólstafir is what you might call the opposite of sunny. “It’s a really dark album,” drummer and vocalist Hallgrímur Jón “Grimsi” Hallgrímsson tells Apple Music. “It’s more rock-focused than the last album, and the mood is a bit heavier.” Endless Twilight of Codependent Love marks just the second time Sólstafir has titled an album in English, but don’t let that fool you: All the songs except one—the single “Her Fall From Grace”—feature Icelandic lyrics. “It’s almost like the opposite of Köld,” says Grimsi, referring to the band’s 2009 album. “That one has an Icelandic title with only English lyrics on it.” Below, he takes us through each track.
