Music That I Leik’d 2012: Icelandic Pink Slime Roll Call….

Yup now that the year is over, its time for the annual flogathon that is DA END OF YEAR LISTS. Despite all our moaning, we all love lists really. It’s a chance for us anally retentive types to get all obsessive about placings and numbers and stuff, as well as it sparking a healthy fightargument, discussion in the pub about it all.

So not ambling, no explanations (You seriously don’t need any by now). Here is my list of what was Icelandic in 2012 that made me go, “Hmmmm…..”

FEELING

moses hightower - Önnur Mósesbók

Valgeir Sigurðsson - Architecture Of Loss

Subminimal - Microfluidics

Þórir Georg - Jánuar

CELESTINE - Celestine

REALLY FEELING

Ghostigital - Division Of Culture & Tourism

Brák - Tómhyggja

Hypno - Kancourde/K2

Legend - Fearless

The heavy experience - Slowscope

LIKE, OMG, IT´S AS IF THEY OPENED ME UP, DIRECTLY INSERTED THE MUSIC STUFFS INTO ME, AND CONVERSED WITH MY SOUL, ETC, ETC…. 

MUCK - SLAVES

Hjaltalín - Enter 4

HONOURABLE MENTIONS

Retro Stefson – Retro Stefson

Sin Fang – Summer Echoes EP

Beneath – Enslaved By Fear

Hildur Guðnadottir – Leyfðu Ljósinu

Two Step Horror – Bad Sides & Rejects

Rafstein – Rebirth

NO, HONESTLY, WHAT THE FUCK WHERE THEY THINKING?

Árnar Ástraðsson – Beautiful State Of Mind

RetRoBot – Blackout EP

Biggi Hilmars – All We Can Be

Contalgen Funeral – Pretty Red Dress

Sigur Rós – Valtari

Low impulse Power: Eistnaflug Molten Metal Special!

Evening their boys & girls…

Sorry for the lack of blogging, but the weather here had been nice, I’ve been in the country, and I’ve also been trying to get my desks cleared of any outstanding pieces. This is because tomorrow i head off eastwards towards the mighty EISTNAFLUG metal festival. Again! There was a bit of tension in the last couple of days with some crossed communication wires that caused my ride to the festival fall through. But a couple of lovely gothic ladies have come to my rescue. As of now, I’m getting my nails done in the blackest of vinyl polish.

So there will be no posting as such over the next several days as i pretty much debase myself to the local metal gods. But check out the Reykjavik Grapevine’s twitter feed, cos I’ll be taking it over at some point, whereupon i will attempt to get the paper sued by all and sundry.

Until there here are some following titbits.

A quick review I did of “Subfluidics”, the latest EP from Subminimal.  You can listen below…

– A new mix from those Gothic ghouls of the interwebs BLACKEST EVER BLACK. More details can be found HERE.

OK, Time for some Icelandic MOLTENFUCKINGMETAL!!!
