(Koch Intern. - 1995)

This is real heavy metal with elements of Metallica and Slayer from Northern Iceland. Never thought that they have metal bands there!?!
Anyway, in the past the band was known - at least in their home country - as Bleeding Vulcano and after the band broke up Hallor Ingolfson started this band - XIII.
The talent of the band was honored by e.g. Lars Ulrich who hired them to support Metallica in Finland! Good reactions they got, even if the rhythm comes from a drum com­puter. Personally I think that presenting a metal band live without a drummer - just with a drum computer - gives a poor account of a band....

5 stars
