Here we have a group of young dudes that are good friends. They’re horny, amped and there are no brakes. That’s how you should sound early in your career. Especially if you love spastic punk, noisy hardcore and metal. The result is like being stuck in a wind tunnel. When sitting through the whole thing, you’d be forgiving for breaking sweat. So, right there, you’re in for a ride. This band is talented and fun to behold. Check.

Internationally, the envelope is hardly being pushed but in an Icelandic context, they’ve carved their own niche. The guitar and drum work is a little bit samey throughout. Consequently the record needs more variation. When slightly spiced up (‘Mandibular Wolf Tooth in Horse’, ‘Nashkel Mines’ and ‘Chip-On Disguise Chops’) it clearly demonstrates how it wouldn’t have taken much seasoning to make ‘The End Is As Near As Your Teeth’ an irresistible delicatessen.
