"40th anniversary first official reissue of 1973 Icelandic hard rock underground monster that's been the target of collectors for several decades. Carefully re-mastered for pristine sound that lays waste to all the inferior bootlegs that have come before. Includes a 12-page booklet with liner notes, clippings and photographs. After several years of hounding band members we are very happy to finally be able to bring you the first official reissue of this legendary gem. Icecross possess a unique dark sound which reveals influences ranging from Sabbath to Crimson 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 ominous effected bass lines and splendid use of bow, creating a perfect dark heavy guitar album that really creeps up on you. 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 the like."
