Solstafir, a "heavy metal" band from Iceland.  "Heavy metal" is mentioned in quotation marks due to the fact that the band has evolved heavily, like several peers in the black metal underground, into one that plays unique, atmospheric music that is often anything but heavy metal.

Their appearance is rather unique, resembling dusty cowboys, having ridden for weeks through a dry frontier.  Perhaps as inconspicuous as the main characters of Joss Whedon's Firefly and stunning theatrical conclusion, Serenity.

Solstafir is highly recommended, whether they're touring with other lighter bands (in this case, the amazing Long Distance Calling and fantastic Audrey Horne), or with much heavier, more brutal bands.  They are quite a unique, standout act in a field that is becoming more and more crowded as time goes on.
