D7Y is a new and absolutely scorching and ever-so-slightly metallic D-Beat unit featuring members of DAUÐYFLIN and ROHT offering up a 12 track debut that will incinerate all preconceived notions of Icelandic music. Reminiscent of S.D.S., GLORIOUS? or PHYSIQUE. Reykjavík punks have the fucking fire right now so stand close and feel the heat. Greenland must be fully melted away by now because D7Y is way too blazing to ignore. 

Our take: Debut vinyl from this new Icelandic band featuring members of Daudyflin and ROHT. I love that in 2019 we’re all just sitting around listening to artsy Icelandic hardcore like it’s no big deal. What a world we live in! Anyway, D7Y lies somewhere in the gulf between Daudyflin’s progressive hardcore and ROHT’s bleak, aggressive noise. They’re more straightforward and hardcore than either, but D7Y’s music is still pretty out there by the standards of contemporary hardcore. My favorite track is the first one, “Martraðaveröld,” which starts with a manic, Confuse-esque pogo beat while the guitarist wails pure Albert Ayler-style nonsense over it. From there the record covers a surprising amount of ground in its short run-time, with moments edging toward Broken Bones-esque metallic hardcore, more chugging later Cimex-style parts, and plenty of straightforward bashing. Throughout D7Y seems to teeter right on the edge of chaos, making this is a gripping listen all the way through.
