Interview with Aðalbjörn “Addi” Tryggvason (SÓLSTAFIR)

As you know SÓLSTAFIR are one stunning band and blend post-rock majestic intensity with beautiful melodies, progressive and psychedelic passages, and a strong undercurrent of hard rock! Well, we are lucky they are headed here this month with the mighty ENSLAVED!


SÓLSTAFIR are different. With their roots heavily embedded in metal, SÓLSTAFIR blend post-rock majestic intensity with beautiful melodies, progressive and psychedelic passages, and a strong undercurrent of hard rock, which comes as varied and at times appealingly bizarre as the white glaciers, moss-green bubble-fields, deep fjords, black beaches and frost-cracked mountain landscapes of their native Iceland.

Finally, 20 years into their astonishing career, and riding high on the five-star reviews for their Berdreyminn album, SÓLSTAFIR are coming to Australia, joining Enslaved on their forthcoming spring sojourn.

“Sólstafir are on a mission to re-imagine the idiosyncratic grandeur of Icelandic landscapes in vivid sonic shades. Total immersion is compulsory.” The Guardian

SÓLSTAFIR take their already impressive evolution ever further to embody the ever-turning wheel of seasons with their shifting light, darkness, and colours, extreme Northern climate, the stark contrasts, the closeness of beauty and deadly forces of nature, the impressive sceneries that have the bones of ancient gods enshrined in them like hardly any other band in every aspect of their existence.
