2015 repress. "40th anniversary of 1973 Icelandic hard rock underground monster that's been the target of record collectors for nearly three decades. Carefully re-mastered 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 an 11" x 17" poster featuring cover art and band photos celebrating the 40th anniversary of this classic heavy rock cult favorite. Includes a quality, poly-lined paper sleeve. For fans of Leaf Hound, Blue Cheer, Elias Hulk, Iron Claw, Jerusalem, Necronomicon, Incredible Hog, Dust, Pentagram, Uriah Heep, High Tide, Flower Travellin' Band and the like. Icecross possess a unique and dark sound for their time which reveals influences ranging from Sabbath to 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."
