Katla comment: "We are stoked to tell you that Allt þetta helvítis myrkur finally hits the shop after long period of hard work", says drummer Guðmundsson Óli Pálmason. "Our sophomore album is a labour of love. We have crafted and desiged every aspect of this release, from music and lyrics via recording and production, mixing and mastering, layout and visual art, down to the handwriting and even the colour of the vinyls. Nothing has been left to chance. Everything fits perfectly into a nicely packaged total work of art. Musically, lyrically, and all around artistically, we feel that we have created our strongest work in both our creative careers. Of course, every artist will says the same, but there can be no doubt that neither of us has ever created anything even remotely resembleing Allt þetta helvítis myrkur before. May 'all this damn darkness' swallow you!"

Katla are the conceptual and musical brainchild of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Einar Thorberg Guðmundsson (Fortíð, Potentiam,...) and former Sólstafir-drummer and visual artist Guðmundsson Óli Pálmason. The duo deliberately took their name from one of the most active and feared Icelandic volcanos to manifest that the external part of their inspiration relates to the islands ever-changing landscapes and subpolar climate. "The outer landscapes are as important to us as the inner darkness", tells Einar. "Katla are as much a product of our environment as derived from our state of mind." Link
