"Vitets Vidd I Verdi", a brand new song from the Norwegian avant-garde act SOLEFALD, is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page. The track comes off the group's new album, "Norrøn Livskunst", which is scheduled for release on November 15 via Indie Recordings.
Commented SOLEFALD's Lars "Lazare" Nedland (vocals, synth, electronic beats, drums and percussion): "SOLEFALD has always had a free relation to genre aesthetics and conventions, which has given us a lot of fun, a death threat, and eight albums we're proud of. While we take our music very seriously, we have always had the ability to take two steps back to see both ourselves and the genre from the outside. This has given room for satire and a healthy dose of self-irony. Moreover, it has made our genre-juggling smoother and more seamless over the years. 'Norrøn Livskunst' shows a band that has been through many a musical experiment and all kinds of genre-stretching exercises. It's black metal and rock, Eighties pop and jungle, seriousness and humor in perfect union, even if the base is still the (black) metal, we started off with as a band."
