Svarthöfði: Svarthöfði EP

Words by

Published July 26, 2010

Didn’t know much about Svarthöfði (Icelandic for Darth Vader) but I took a punt on these guys through Gogoyoko. I wish I hadn’t bothered. They may call themselves punk, but I thought that there should be some form of energy for a good punk record. This hasn’t got it. I found most of the tracks boring and pedantic with the vocals sounding listless and bored, which didn’t really help. The nadir of the EP was the track ‘Leitt’, which I found so bland that it makes Ný Dönsk sound like anarchist class warfare. If you think that the Kaiser Chiefs represent the cutting edge of music then it may be for you but otherwise avoid, unless to poke and laugh at it with a shitty stick.
Verdict: Bad and, the ultimate sin for a punk band, boring
