Underworld - Solefald - Black For Death - An Icelandic Odyssey Part II (CD, Album)

13.11.2019 Mut 9 Comments

Vocally, the band had made yet another change. Maintaining Lazare's style and getting rid of his hollering style singing, and keeping Cornelius' lower black metal grunting, "Pills" saw the addition of a less high pitched black metal shriek from Cornelius, as well as Cornelius' most common style of singing to date.

This new vocal style is a throaty sounding form of vocals, similar to some gothic rock bands. This album, released on 19 September , was Solefald's first album released through the German record label Century Media. The next Solefald endeavour came in with the full-length album In Harmonia Universali , released on 24 March The album contained 10 songs, with each song's lyrics devoted to various artists, philosophers, and deities. The lyrics are also sung in four languages on this album, English, Norwegian, French, and German.

They incorporated a Steinway grand piano, a male choir, authentic Spanish classical acoustic guitar, violin, and saxophone. The music was layered, consisting of composite riffs and leads from the guitars and hammond keyboard sections. Vocally this found Cornelius eschewing his black metal vocal approach, sticking strictly with this throaty spoken word performance.

Lazare's vocals stayed primarily the same. This was their last album released on Century Media. In he joined the avant-garde metal band Age of Silence as singer and main lyricist, which includes members such as Andy Winter from the band Winds , and Hellhammer from such bands as Arcturus , Mayhem , Winds , and many more. Age of Silence released a new three song EP entitled Complications — Trilogy of Intricacy on October 11, as a lead into their approaching second full-length.

He is also still with Borknagar, who released Universal in Lazare contributed back-up vocals on this release, along with vocalist Fuchs of Weimar 's Die Apokalyptischen Reiter.

Following shortly after the release of Black For Death, Cornelius and Lazare continue to release more music from other projects. He is also writing the libretto for a contemporary opera telling a story from the pagan times of the North. Later in the year , the band travelled to Iceland , with funding from Tekstforfatterfondet, to write their next album. Originally planning to release one new album, the group wound up writing so much new material, they decided they would release two new albums.

Reviewed by Andrew. Treacherous are the Nordic mountainsides amidst a horizon black, though so chivalric are the adventurous, seeking great towers golden and shield-halls bronzen amidst a resounding doubt through this forlorn journey Such imagery and magnitude are easily summoned by the Nordic melodies of Solefald's Black For Death, their second and final contribution to the An Icelandic Odyssey saga, where the once avant-garde blackish metal warlocks have since turned their gazes towards Bifrost, though assuredly such a vision with as much varying complexity as Solefald possesses will change as does the moon's phase weaved within the great macrocosms, so it seems that perhaps Red For Fire and are nothing more than a sun's passing through an afternoon sky, a fleeting moment in the rancid confines of time's ever-ticking clock Both albums could be considered a play on how Solefald describe their music, which is as "red music with black edges".

All tracks written by Cornelius and Lazare. The music in the song "Loki Trickster God" is the same as in "White Frost Queen" from Red for Fire ; however, "Loki Trickster God" is shorter, and the music is arranged differently in the second half of the song.

    Jan 04,  · Solefald – Black for Death: An Icelandic Odyssey, Pt. II Review. Old Guard Lazare and Cornelius return for part two of their Icelandic Odyssey and it basically is on par with the high as with Red For Fire, the saxophone again appears on Black For Death (“Underworld”, “Dark Waves Dying”), again rendering the track as a sort of.
  2. Dojar says:
    Nov 14,  · The sequel to RED FOR FIRE: AN ICELANDIC ODYSSEY PART I, BLACK FOR DEATH finds the Norwegian metal duo Solefald stretching their stylistic wings per usual. Incorporating elements of industrial, dance, electronica, ambient, and progressive metal into their goth-tinged style, Solefald create a sound that exhibits an unusual structural and musical.
  3. Kehn says:
    Feb 19,  · Black for Death is the continuation to Red for Fire. Solefald still aspire to do a sort of modern brand of viking metal, complete with a more pronounced black metal influence than usual and nice accompaniment from real symphonic instruments. Black for Death is the darker and more experimental of the two albums/5(7).

    Time can be a scary thing sometimes. While listening to Norrøn livskunst I noticed that 4 years have passed since Solefald released their last album, Black for Death: An Icelandic Odyssey, Part II. The longest gap between two Solefald albums until today. Was Norrøn livskunst worth all the waiting?

    This will be a true Nordic Viking Metal album." This two part saga is the story written by Cornelius about Bragi, a skald in Iceland. "Red For Fire: An Icelandic Odyssey Part I", the first album from this two part saga, was released in October Musically the album was far from standard viking metal.
  9. Doran says:
    Lazare and Cornelius return for part two of their Icelandic Black for Death: Icelandic Odyssey album for sale As with Red For Fire, Black For Death is an experimental, progressive sort of black-ish metal with a Viking lean, due to the subject matter, but makes no qualms about delivering unexpected elements within the framework of a Norse concept.
