|Sigur Rós - Kveikur|
| Kveikur - the new album from Sigur Rós - was released on June 17th / 18th 2013, and is capturing imaginations worldwide with its dark, powerful sound.|
The album, which was available to be streamed on Amazon a week before its official release, is the group's seventh studio release. It is the first not to include erstwhile member Kjartan Sveinsson, who left last year, and also signals a new era in terms of sound: the band themselves hinted the new record would boast a "more aggressive" sound than their previous works, and the album does indeed boast a quality that is earth-rumblingly heavy and compelling.
