Icecross Icecross on Import LP
40th anniversary vinyl reissue of the 1973 Icelandic hard rock underground monster that's been the target of collectors for at least two decades! Carefully remastered for pristine sound that lays waste to all the bootlegs that have come before. Includes 12 x 12 insert with liner notes, clippings and photographs and a 11 x 17 poster featuring cover art and band photos.
Icecross possessed a unique and dark sound for their time which reveals influences ranging from Black Sabbath to King Crimson to Blue Oyster Cult and beyond all melded together in such a way to form their distinct Icecross style. Considered proto-metal by many, though they don’t achieve this with a typical smash your face approach.
Instead, Icecross unleash some killer inventive guitar sounds by way of Leslie speakers combined with wild ominous bass lines, frantic drumming, spooky effected vocals and splendid use of bow to create a perfect dark heavy guitar album. One of the few, if not the only, Icelandic band inspired by Sabbath at that time. For fans of Leaf Hound, Blue Cheer, Elias Hulk, Iron Claw, Jerusalem, Necronomicon, Hairy Chapter, Incredible Hog, Dust, Pentagram and Flower Travellin' Band.
