Sigur Ros is back and better than ever. With the lack of a pianist, Kveikur departs from Sigur Ros’ previous sound and becomes a very dark and powerful post-rock album. This album is explosive with pounding rhythms and distorted, modulated bass. Many songs sound abyssal but Jonsi’s vocals create a light in the heavy sound that is prominent in Kveikur. Definitely worth a listen!!
