Release Date:07/21/2017;Notes:Glerakur is the moniker Icelandic composer and sound designer Elvar Geir Sævarsson has chosen to represent the unique cinematic music he creates apart from his engagement as a sound engineer at the National Theater of Iceland. Icelandic for 'Glass Field', Glerakur draws inspiration from post rock, drone and ambient music, as well as black and doom metal, blending and bending sound into hypnotic waves of dreamlike atmosphere that Rolling Stone hailed as 'brutally irresistible', calling for comparison to 'Metallica covering the live half of Pink Floyd's 1969 album Ummagumma.' "The Mountains Are Beautiful Now" is the debut full-length from Glerakur, following the release of 2016's introductory EP, "Can't You Wait", which was nominated for an Icelandic Kraumur Award, chosen by the country's top journalists and radio hosts and bestowed annually to the best albums released in Iceland (see Björk, Sigur Rós). Written for and inspired by The National Theatre of Iceland's 2015 production of the play "Fjalla-Eyvindur & Halla" by Jóhann Sigurjónsson, "The Mountains Are Beautiful Now" was recorded with four guitarists, two drummers and a bassist in the basement bar at the Theatre. Perhaps Rolling Stone said it best when describing Glerakur, saying "What seemed at first to be huge, gray slabs of unrelenting distortion proved, over a full set's exposure, to be four guitarists issuing multiple, weaving strands of sustain and harmonic feedback, resolving into slow-motion melodies hammered into the air by two drummers." "The Mountains Are Beautiful Now" is available as Digipak CD, LP and 2CD hardcover book edition (18x18 cm, 48 pages, feat. three essays on Glerakur and "Fjalla-Eyvindur & Halla", additional photography and an extra full-length CD of 50 minutes playing time).;Track List:1.
