Strigaskór nr. 42 is a band with quite a long history but sporatic activity through the years. Formed in the late eighties, Strigaskór nr. 42 came to be at the forefront of the vibrant Icelandic death-metal scene in the early nineties. The band’s only full album to date, ‘Blót’ (1994), veered away from traditional metal style and received widespread critical acclaim and a cult status in Iceland’s music community. Now, nearly twenty years later, the band is back with a new album, ‘Armadillo,’ and a performance at Airwaves 2013 that has been a long time in the making.
