EDITORS’ NOTES

For album three, Denmark’s Iceage open with “On My Fingers,” a song that immediately suggests a Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds track with a very lubricated Cave leading the charge. But it’s merely singer Elias Bender Ronnenfelt slurring words while the group do their very best imitation of a merry band of pirates. A number of tracks suggest this comparison, but the group are aiming to transition from stylish punk rock to European art house/American blues. Drummer Dan Kjaer Nielsen keeps the tempo and provides the tribal flourishes necessary to turn even the ballad (“Glassy Eyed, Dormant and Veiled”) into something menacing.

Cool foot

The leg is cool. The black high-heel.

Probably the best rock album of 2014

A post-punk masterpiece. This was my first Iceage album. I didn't like it at first. But, man it grew on me. Very good super depressing lyrics. Ronnenfelt's vocals sound like he's on the edge, and has had enough. Really powerful songs on here. The title track is probably my favorite. Definitely buy this album, and pay attention to these guys in the coming years.
