Icelandic blackened extreme metal warriors SOLSTAFIR have unleashed this statement on relations with drummer Guðmundur Óli Pálmason exit from the band.
SOLSTAFIR have announced spring 2016 EUROPEAN tour dates.
SOLSTAFIR released "Ótta", unleashed 8/29/2014 (EUROPE) and 9/2/2014 (NORTH AMERICA) via SEASON OF MIST.
As you probably all know we have not been on good terms with Guðmundur Óli since his departure from the band last year. Things have gotten ugly and now we face a terrible fight through lawyers. I will not get into any details but ask you all to bear in mind an old Icelandic saying: "Sjaldan veldur einn þá tveir deila." Translation: "The fight of two is rarely the fault of one."
Gummi now has a new song out with his new project, Katla. Despite the fact that we have not spoken in a year it made me glad. After all we were best of friends for decades and even if things are turning out to be ugly this is important to me. Gummi is at his best when he is making music and I want him to be well.
Check it out, it’s a very cool song.
In case you missed it, here is our new video for "Miðaftann".
Directed by Vesa Ranta (x-Sentenced) and Harri Haataja, starring Guðmundur Ingi Thorvaldsson, whose last music video work was Iron Maiden's "The Final Frontier". Sólstafir Germany - https://vimeo.com/148103121
