Can you call this hardcore? Well, it's not what I expected. It's a decent album though, A pretty heavy band and the biggest thing in the icelandic music scene since Bjork - well, the only thing in the icelandic music scene since Bjork. This reminds me a bit of Integrity with a little technology thrown in. Lots of good screaming and some death metal riffage...these guys are talented but its not something typical of what you would find on Victory. I guess it's a good change for Victory though...they have opened their horizons to different styles of hardcore in the past few years. Anyway I'm not going to say too much more about the album...it's good but nothing too special....this should fit very well of fans of technological metal and hardcore alike.

This album kicks enormous amounts of arse with a very large hammer on its foot. Ouch. In fact that hammer is so big it even busts balls whilst kicking arse.
The riffs are heavy, the vocals screamy and its all very good. They do get technically better on Halledor Laxedous but this is a great album.

Sigur Ros is a pretty damn good Icelandic band, and they're probably way more "famous" than Minus.
