6 tracks of incendiary Icelandic hardcore punk custom built to destroy even the sturdiest of preconceived notions. Have no doubts, these fierce women (and Fannar) of Reykjavík are laying down an unholy path to the icy acid bath that waits for us all. Hell has frozen over. Burn yourself all the way down with this one. Pogo to the prophecy beat.

Our take: I’ve been a fan of Iceland’s Daudyflin for a little while now, and this new EP continues to refine their manic, almost psychedelic hardcore. It’s funny, listening to this new EP I can’t get out of my head how much it sounds like Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers’ classic Furious Party EP—it has a really similar chorus-drenched sound and the singer is nearly as unhinged-sounding as the wild man who sang for CCM—but after going back and listening to Daudyflin’s previous records this doesn’t sound that much different. However, everything does seem to be pushed just a little bit harder here… it’s a little faster, the production is a little more in-the-red, and the whole thing just sounds a little bit rawer and wilder. It’s not every day that a record is able to capture that level of wild intensity, so if that’s the type of soundtrack you like to put on when you’re smashing everything in your house, taking too much bad acid and wandering around a post-apocalyptic urban hellscape, or standing in the middle of a demolition derby then I can’t think of a better way to spend $7.50 than making this record a permanent part of your life.
