Over the last few years, the Icelandic hardcore/punk scene has been rather chill, but leading the new wave of resurgence is MUCK.
Short Bio: MUCK are four young souls intrigued by discordant and jangly sounds. Since their inception in 2007, the band has always been setting the bar for extreme music in Iceland higher and higher.
One thing that separates the men from the boys in this genre is how tight the bands plays…these are the men. I’m going to set their music as my morning alarm. It’ll wake me better than my normal-strength coffee.
From Iceland Music Export:
Attention hardcore fans! Icelandic band Muck, who sent audiences into a veritable frenzy at last year’s Airwaves, have released a new album: Slaves, a follow-up to their successful EP Vultures.
The release took two years to create and as a result it is super-tight – and it’s no surprise that the record is already garnering positive attention. The band themselves previously promised that Slaves would be “way faster and more aggressive than the early stuff.” Don’t say they didn’t warn you.
