SÓLSTAFIR FAN LENDS COLLECTION TO ICELANDIC EXHIBITION
Iceland’s premier extreme metallers Sólstafir have been honoured in an exhibition celebrating the diverse rock music to come out of the country.
Taking place at the Sibelius Museum in Turku, Finland, the ‘Iceland Sounds & Sagas’ exhibition is aimed at introducing Icelandic music and culture to locals through film and photographs. And as part of the exhibition one Finnish super fan has lent his massive Sólstafir collection to the museum.
Speaking on Facebook the band said: “Our friend and Finnish super fan Juho Koli lent his extensive Sólstafir collection to the Turku exhibition Iceland -Sounds and Sagas. We are honored to be a part of it all.”
The collection features Sólstafir posters, vinyl, CDs, badges, ticket stubs, glasses, what appears to be a tea towel, and, most excitingly, a unique LEGO version of the band (sadly but understandably behind glass to stop anyone playing with and potentially breaking them). Other artists featured in the exhibition include Björk, Sigur Rós, Of Monsters And Men and new prog-rockers The Vintage Caravan.
The band recently released a split 7″ with fellow Icelanders Legend, with Sólstafir covering Legend’s track ‘Runaway Train’ and Legend covering Sólstafir’s ‘Fjara’. Sólstafir will be appearing at the once-again ridiculous line-up at Maryland Deathfest on May 22.
The exhibition takes place until April 30, so if you live nearby or fancy a trip to see some special Sólstafir memorabilia, now’s your chance.
Thanks for dropping in!
