“Móðurástin” will be out on October 27th via Prophecy Productions.
Icelandic act Katla. is named in tribute to one of Iceland’s greatest active volcanos, Katla. The project features ex-Sólstafir drummer Guðmundur Óli Pálmason and Einar Eldur Thorberg Guðmundsson (Fortíð, Potentiam) who is a singer/multi-instrumentalist.
In the meantime, the band announced that their debut album “Móðurástin” is finished and consequently published the final mix of the first single entitled “Hyldýpi” which you can listen below.
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.
Due for release on October 27th via Prophecy Productions, “Móðurástin” will be 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 (28×28 cm, 72 pages, with art photography of Guðmundur Óli Pálmason and a full-length bonus CD feat. remixes of all album tracks).
