Boomkat Product Review:
Following a promising debut on the ever reliable DAIS imprint, ‘You’re Nothing’ is Danish youngsters Iceage’s shot at the big-time with new label Matador in tow. The record finds the Danes doing their best Black Flag impression, and while they manage to come out relatively unscathed, there’s a sense that some of the urgency we witnessed on their debut is lost here. Sure there’s a scathing, teeth-grinding and furious edge to these songs, but they all too often fall into US hardcore self parody somehow. When it hits, it hits hard for sure, but it’s hard not to miss the wild teeth-gnashing that’s been sidelined in the process.
