Katla's debut album, "Móðurástin", shines a spotlight on the band's hook-heavy, horizon-stretching sound.
The lyrics tell tales of living in a country of contrasts; a land where fire and ice co-exist and dark winters are offset by the summer's midnight sun. Iceland: a country where insular existence has spurred a rich and vibrant culture. "Móðurástin", Icelandic for (a) Mother's Love, might seem like a strange title for a metal album, but Katla dares to be different. What on Earth is stronger than a mother's love? Nothing. Not hate, not lust, not greed. Katla has shaped a towering sound sharpened by experience and forged for fans of heavy, atmospheric music. It is time for Katla to erupt again!
"Móðurástin" is available as Digipak CD (with 24-pages booklet), Gatefold 2-LP (on black and strictly limited dark green vinyl) and as a collector's 2CD artbook edition (28x28 cm, 72 pages, with art photography of Guðmundur Óli Pálmason and a full-length bonus CD feat. remixes of all album tracks).
