Talking in broad strokes, black metal is all about emotion. It uses it to steamroller your senses and the ability of a successful black metal band in parlaying said emotion is an impressive one. It’s difficult to play a guitar incredibly fast but you can learn to do that much more easily than learning to convey your emotions. That’s why we knew Morð were the real deal when we saw them playing live at Eistnaflug Festival earlier this summer.

Future Hits 100: Muck

Muck
From: Reykjavik, Iceland
Lazy Equation: Sonic Youth + (Dillinger Escape Plan x Converge)

Thrash Hits Verdict:
We can think of no better way than Muck of celebrating our centenary of celebrating new bands. This is the kind of band that you just hope you’ll stumble across in a grotty biker bar in a weird country. We saw these guys last week in a grotty biker bar at Iceland Airwaves 2011 in their hometown of Reykjavik and they blew our frozen cotton socks off. This band has everything: the songs, the attitude, the desire. Every time we reflected upon them doing something awesome (like playing slide guitar with a Macbook) they did something even more awesome (like play ‘Mother’). This band needs to be heard by everybody.

Iceland Airwaves 2011: Day 02 and it got colder

October 14th, 2011

It’s the morning of Day 03 so it’s time to try and remember all the terrible things that went on yesterday in our non-waterproof trainers. If there was ever a country you want to be wearing shoes that don’t leak, it’s Iceland. Damn our soggy feet and all the awesome parties they made puddles in.

Also, we got a ride into town with Endless Dark and they played us some new songs. We had a mini #carm0sh.

Iceland Airwaves 2011: Day 01 and it’s wet and windy but NOT too cold. Hooray!

October 13th, 2011

Oh, Reykjavik, how we’ve missed you. The rain, the wind, the fizzy, fizzy lager and the inevitable hangover. Obviously we trivialise our awful, globe-trotting, rock-watching lives by focusing on the things people moan about on Twitter every day but Iceland Airwaves 2011 is here. We are there and we’ve already seen some bands and drunk beers. Lots of expensive beers.
