As I said in the first post Icelandic releases might dominate my list for noteworthy releases in 2017, and it’s true. I spent most of the year listening to domestic releases, loving most of those I heard.
Today it’s time for the debut album of Katla, Móðurástin. A relatively unknown band comprised of members, ex-members in some cases, of Sólstafir, Potentiam, Hólókaust 2001 and Fortíð. As might be expected the album is all over the place, so you can’t call it black metal, you can’t call it gothic metal and you certainly can’t call it death metal.
