Indie Recordings has announced the signing of SOLEFALD. The group's seventh album will be released later in the year.

The Norwegian avant-garde act was formed by Lars Are "Lazare" Nedland and Cornelius Jakhelln in August 1995. It features Lazare on vocals, keyboards/synthesizer/piano and drums, and Cornelius on vocals, guitar and bass.

Already from the get-go in 1995, it was already quite evident that the band had an experimental edge, incorporating Lazare's choir like clean vocals and lush piano passages into the heavy and intense black metal formula.

SOLEFALD is a rare breed of band that is able to successfully fuse two opposing feelings of music; beauty and ambiance, as well as intensity and rage.

Commented Cornelius Jakhelln: "SOLEFALD are proud to announce that we have inked a record deal with Indie Recordings. After over a decade in harbors overseas, returning to our new home in Oslo definitely feels good. As the distributor of our 'Icelandic Odyssey', Indie delivered astonishing results in the Norwegian market, both sales- and promotion wise. Thus, we are confident that SOLEFALD will receive the best possible treatment. As the fanatics among you know already, a new SOLEFALD album is in the making and will be launched in 2009. The album is more guitar-based than previously, and contains several songs in Norwegian. We won't reveal too much about the contents yet, only that we look forward to return with a scream and a bang (which was the technique we deployed to mask certain deficiencies on our 'Jernlov' demo, lol)!"
