Sólstafir formed in 1995. Their unique blend of metal with beautiful melodies, psychedelic moments and a strong undercurrent of classic / hard rock comes as varied and at times appealingly bizarre as the landscapes of their native Iceland. The group is currently on tour in support of Ótta (Icelandic for “Fears”), their fifth album released on Aug. 29, 2014 through Season of Mist. Expect the unexpected, such as seduction by subtle strings or a hypnotic banjo.
On Sunday, May 17, Sólstafir will be performing a headlining concert in Austin at Red 7. They will be joined by touring mates Ancient VVisdom. The best part? We have two tickets to giveaway to one of our lucky Red River Noise readers.
