In occasione del festival olandese sarà distribuita la versione fisica, in edizione limitata, del singolo “Silfur-Refur” in vinile 10″ blu e nera. Le restanti copie saranno successivamente acquistabili tramite il sito della Season of Mist. Il singolo vede inoltre un lato B d’eccezione, con il brano “Scorpion Moonrise” impreziosito dalla partecipazione di Mat “Kvohst” McNerney (Beastmilk, Hexvessel) che è anche autore del testo.
Così il frontman Aðalbjörn “Addi” Tryggvason ha commentato il singolo:
“The song “Silfur-Refur” revolves around having a sick ghost version of yourself taking control of your life. You resist with all you have, but you simply don’t stand a chance. It travels with you all the time, asleep or awake. The song was written in a few parts – with the intro being one of them. We knew right away that this would be the opener of the album.”
Queste invece le parole a proposito del lato B:
“The other track, “Scorpion Moonrise” was written in only one day, on which we also recorded the demo. The moment, the opening riff kicked in, I already pictured Mat singing it since the riff reminded me so much of Hexvessel – as in their powerful live performances that we have witnessed many times while touring with them. As we are good friends and have followed Mat’s career in Void, Code, DHG, Hexvessel, Beastmilk, and Grave Pleasures, we all agreed that he would be the perfect guy to lay down his vocals on it. We just love the result and he made the song into what it is today. It’s also nice to hear a bit of English again in Sólstafir as we have used that language in the past – and also continue our tradition of occasionally inviting guest singers.”
