referencing Svartir Sandar, 2xCD, Album, SOM 247. 4th release since 1994 from powerful Icelandic band is an epic behemoth of atmospheric sludge with a majestically dark, heavy beauty in a place where the tenacity of wild-eyed, crushing metal meets the gripping solace of deep, calming vibrato chord structures.

Sólstafir is an Icelandic post-metal band formed in 1995 and currently signed to Season of Mist. Originally a black metal band, they transitioned to a style on their second album Masterpiece of Bitterness. Sólstafir was formed in 1995 by guitarist/singer Aðalbjörn Tryggvason, bassist Halldór Einarsson, and drummer Guðmundur Óli Pálmason. The band's name is the Icelandic word for sun beams (crepuscular rays). They soon recorded the demos Í Norðri and Til Valhallar.

Perhaps what sets Svartir Sandar apart from Solstafir's other albums most is the band's decision to run with the double-CD idea, as opposed to condensing the concept. The album barely breaches the standard 74 minute mark, and as a result seems like more of a chore to spin than it actually is. "Stinningskaldi" and "Stormfari" - two interlude-type tracks that make the album feel somewhat disjointed toward the end - could have easily been eliminated to alleviate this potential problem

What the sprawling Svartir Sandar (Black Sands) actually sounds like is Robert Smith playing Krautrock in a fjord, or perhaps Kyüss regrouping in Reykjavik and trading their desert rock for, well, lava-field rock - equally drawn-out and groovy, but also grim like an Icelandic sunset in November, plowing ahead on steady, dynamic rhythms that induce a sort of trance laden.
