KUGGUR’s debut album
KUGGUR’s debut album! A new project by Guðmundur Óli Pálmason, ex Sólstafir’s founder and drummer.
Belfry Records are pleased to announce the release of the debut album “حصاد ضَوْءٌ النُّجُومِ” by KUGGUR.
KUGGUR is a new musical entity and it’s sole member Guðmundur Óli Pálmason is no newcomer to music, being currently active in Icelandic post-doom/black metal band Katla, as well as having been a founding member and drummer for twenty years in Sólstafir.
KUGGUR‘s music is of a new ilk though, being mostly electronic and ambient in nature, Guðmundur uses Kuggur to explore previously unvisited musical landscapes without any pre-set limitations.
KUGGUR‘s debut album “حصاد ضَوْءٌ النُّجُومِ” will be released on 22th July 2022 through Belfry Records.
About the new album “حصاد ضَوْءٌ النُّجُومِ”
Which translates to Harvesting the light of the stars was inspired by conversations Guðmundur had with his Lebanese wife about the maybe not-so-obvious musical similarities between Middle Eastern folk music and Icelandic folk music. Both styles relay heavily on minor scales, which tend to sound melancholic. For reasons he can’t explain, Guðmundur says he’s always been drawn to melancholic music.
We send you a press kit, press photos and the debut album in order to share with you this magnificent work and create a great scenery for this premiere.
