Iceage are the most influential danish rock band since The Sods and have almost single handedly brought international attention back on danish underground music since their release debut album New Brigade in 2011.
Just out of their teens, it seems Copenhagen’s Iceage have only added to the anxiety and tension that made their debut album, New Brigade, so compelling. But now, they’re challenging their raging emotions instead of simply expressing them. You’re Nothing, Iceage’s sophomore album, is the sound of a band pushing their singular mix of punk, Goth, hardcore, and post-punk to even further extremes. It’s overwhelming how many ways Iceage have found to write the short aggressive rock song.
When you see Iceage live you get the feeling the songs are just about to fall apart before miraculously recovering, always rewarding you with a climax. This menacing energy is more forceful on You’re Nothing. It is a more epic sound, like a rough sea.
2018 will see them release their 4th studio album and take further step towards deserved international stardom as one of the most acclaimed rock bands in contemporary music.
