SÓLSTAFIR is an Icelandic metal outfit whose unique style has made it hard to categorize into a specific genre due to its sophisticated music. The band incorporates elements of atmospheric black metal with post-rock/metal, progressive rock and post-hardcore vocals. The ambient build ups are magical, the riffs stunning, the vocals mind-blowing. Like Sigur Rós goes metal! Slow motion aural apocalypse. Simply awesome. SÓLSTAFIR’s first and second appearances at Hellfest in 2012 and 2014 were stunning and this year’s magnificent performance-to-be is one of the most awaited one.
