Reykjavík!


Published January 12, 2009

There are very few live bands around Iceland that are celebrated at their shows like Reykjavík! The second album of this furious five-piece gives the proof again why.
“The Blood” catches you quite conventionally with the first beats of the title track, but then explodes in a 40 minute long energetic outburst that barely leaves time to catch a breath in between. It is amazing how well the band combines elements from punk, metal, rock and sometimes maybe even a dose of funk. Not to forget the great dual singing and the countless drum-breaks or guitar-licks that show up with every pass. “The Blood” is reminiscent of the hectic rush of The Blood Brothers, but in the end its raw power makes it a very unique piece of music. Therefore the catchy tunes like “Repticon” or “Acid Rain” are almost part of the free programme – just like Reykjavík!’s very own Christmas song “Talking Tree”.
