Solefald The Linear Scaffold on Limited Edition 180g LP

Solefald (the name taken from the Old Norse word for sunset) formed in Norway in 1995 by members Lars Are "Lazare" and Cornelius Jakhelln. The band never fit in with conventional genre labeling, always possessing a keen dedication towards experimentation, and were therefore classified as avant-garde black metal. The Linear Scaffold was the band's debut full-length originally released in 1997. It was seen as a breakthrough in black metal at the time incorporating countless fresh ideas with jazzy guitar passages and alternative instruments like piano to concoct an atmosphere altogether more interesting than many of their peers.

Still as fresh sounding today, this symphonic black metal album stands out with its dynamic twists and poetic imagery from the words of Cornelius, further enhanced with the inclusion of "When The Moon Is On The Wave" written by Lord Byron. Aside from both members' work with other bands, including Borknagar and Winds, Cornelius is also an accomplished writer/poet, with many published writings including a tetralogy of poems entitled Quadra Natura. This edition of The Linear Scaffold is presented on 180g heavyweight vinyl and appears on the format for the first time.
