Black Metallers DYNFARI Releases ‘The Four Doors of the Mind’ W/T-Shirt Preorder
Alternating between post-rock vibes and black metal atmospheres, the album explores fantasy writer Patrick Rothfuss’ theory on the mind’s abilities to cope with pain, by weaving it together with over 100 year old lamentations on human existence by early 20th century Icelandic existentialist poet Jóhann Sigurjónsson. The combination of the two writers’ thoughts is embodied in the union of the drive of black metal with more traditional soundscapes of acoustic guitar, accordion, flute and bouzouki.

Dynfari plays black metal influenced, heavily atmospheric music. Since its formation as a duo in 2010 this now fully formed Icelandic band has made four albums. Armed with candlelight and incense, the band’s hypnotizing live performances elevate all senses into another world. Dynfari’s lyrical themes deal with the philosophy of life, death, the universe, loss, hope and sorrow.
