Ferlegheit: You Can Be As Bad As You Can Be Good

Words by

Published March 23, 2011

Hot tip for you Icelandic bands with English lyrics: spell-check your motherfucking CD booklet… and learn English… and maybe get someone else to do your artwork… or, in fact, if your band is Ferlegheit, you should probably just get a new band. This horrifyingly anachronistic genre exercise is about as cheap and pointless as they come, with lousy, derivative blues riffs turning no musical corners at all. The production is, however superb, but even this turns out to be unfortunate; it makes every hackneyed guitar hook and organ chortle resonate with crystal clarity on your speakers, and you can practically hear the cheap poses and scribbling of heartless mathematical equations used to write music like this.
