Icelandic atmospheric rock/metal duo KATLA streaming new song


The Icelandic rock/metal volcano KATLA is erupting again and as of now lava-streaming a second song off their forthcoming debut album Móðurástin.

The Icelandic duo Katla, consisting of drummer Guðmundur Óli Pálmason (ex-Sólstafir) and singer/multi-instrumentalist Einar Thorberg Guðmundsson (Fortíð, Potentiam), are now streaming Nátthagi, a second song off their debut Móðurástin that showcases once more the emotional density of their elemental art:

This tune, which sounds like a promise of hope for the revival of nature, came as a welcome breath of fresh air to the two musicians during the writing process for the album and is expected to have the same soothing effect on the fans’ ears, according to Einar:

Nátthagi is very sincerely, a positive song. That's not something that happens for me every day when I sit down and start working on music. I asked Gummi if he could write some uplifting lyrics to the song as well. He wrote about light and the hope that a new day can bring, about the sun being reborn in spring and how it brings new life to this frozen island here in the far north. It fits the song perfectly in my opinion and it's a nice change for me personally from all the gloom I've been putting out through the years. Musically it could easily be part II of our song Kaldidalur, but has the opposite message, mood and feeling. I think Nátthagi is something you should put on if you are, or want to be feeling energetic and productive. It is definitely the brightest season of our album.

Móðurástin is to be released through the German record label Prophecy Productions on October, 27th. The album can be pre-ordered here: http://en.prophecy.de/artists/katla/
