I am into Icelandic music, and this is one of the best things I have discovered in ages... I have bought this album and Svartir Sandar, both of which are awesome. Both are quite different... this one isn't perhaps as smooth as Svartir Sandar, but certain tracks really stand out.

Once the dust had settled, I suppose the journey from black metal, or Viking metal as it might well have been, to a psychedelic form of rock was much clearer than that brief description would suggest. It might seem like there are no parallel lines to be drawn from Sólstafir's transition from a black metal based type of music to psychedelic rock but, even from the very beginning, there clearly are. At the start of their full-length career it was a challenge to pigeon hole Sólstafir and place them into a suitable genre whereby we reviewers can describe their music in accordance with the traditions and values that composes that genre, but even with time and a lot of troublesome digestion, the Icelandic four piece band are still as difficult, if not more, to define. `Í Blóši og Anda' was very much a work in progress. It highlighted, although not considerably well, some of the quirky talents within the band that we would later come to admire, like the vocals of Ašalbjörn Tryggvason, albeit in a vastly different manner to how the band portray themselves in the present day.

From there onwards, the Icelanders were on the up-and-up, climbing the mountainous task cautiously on `Masterpiece of Bitterness' before successfully conquering the mountain and placing their national flag upon the top in the form of `Köld', a record which warmed the hearts of many to the band and helped them become a recognised face of metal and rock around the globe.

The Beauty of Iceland, In Musical Form.. 22 May 2009
By D. West - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
On Kold, Solstafir create a sound of anger, sadness and melancholy. Which, for me, correlates into an almost catatonic state of listening. Solstafir are from Iceland and in listening to Kold, I'm transported, in my mind, to complete solitude. The music is a vast, barren Winter tundra. The guitars slice, as rays of light through gray clouds. The voice seems distant, yet somehow close. The dirty bass, along with, pounding tribal drumming completes the foundation. Solstafir's earlier work is described as black metal. While that may be true, Kold is sufficiently removed from that style of metal on this release. I hear post/rock and post/metal, and maybe a touch of doom. Something about this music just crushes me, and that's good for me. I hear something new with each listen. If you want to go to Iceland(in your mind) this is your soundtrack. Highly recommended.

This stuff is what dreams are made of. And you have to have twelve more words after that sentence. Yeah.

I love this CD. Since I got it It has not left my car. The songs have a great dynamic range. Their sound is so unique and powerful. One of my favorite albums of all time.
