Sólstafir’s Endless Twilight Of Codependent Love: Metal Hammer Review
Icelandic enigmas Sólstafir fuse the intimate and the epic on new album Endless Twilight Of Codependent Love
Sólstafir’s music doesn’t feel like it’s been written so much as carved out of the landscape by blizzards and howling gales. The Reykjavík quartet’s seventh album is no exception. It’s as elemental and unknowable as modern metal gets.
In that respect, it’s business as usual. But in others, it’s a step on from anything they’ve done before. Sólstafir have never been short of scope and ambition, but Endless Twilight Of Codependent Love – how’s that for a title, their first English-language one in 15 years? – is the sound of a band subtly but distinctly changing things up.
