Format: Audio CD
After the truely brilliant noisecore record that is 'Jesus Christ Bobby', I and I'd guess a hell of a lot of others were expecting more of the same on the new LP. Oh how wrong we were, with the band having performed a Cave In like u turn stylistically. As a result 'Halldor Laxness' is more of a straight up rock record but with enough twists to make it more than worthwhile. Krummi now sings for the most part with some screaming and lots of yelps and the overall impression is of an arctic QOTSA. Standout tracks (in my humble opinion) are:
Boys Of Winter: Neat electronic alteration on Krummi's voice, a brilliant riff and a nice catchy vocal melody at the end.
Who's Hobo: One of my favourites. Great vocals and a quality breakdown (hinting at their older style) combined with a seriously rocking riff.
Flophouse Nightmares: Great atmospheric use of wah pedals in the guitar.
The Long Face: Minus including a saxophone in a song?! Brilliant song.
Last Leaf Upon The Tree: Glacial and haunting, vocals courtesy of Katie(?) from Queen Adrena.
Overall, not the kind of music I'm normally into but this one's got me hooked. Go buy!

I got into Minus after hearing the first album, and deciding it was one of the most original and extreme albums since Refused's Shape of Punk To Come, with its offbeat riffing and ceaseless screaming.
Haldor Laxness is a completely different kettle of fish, and may take some time getting to like. Minus have gone from all-out extreme into a slightly more conventional, yet still compelling, style of rock. There are very few screams to be heard here and most tracks bear an uncanny similarity to The International Noise Conspiracy. 'The Long Face' is the best example of this, combining a saxophone in there somehow.
There are still tons of wierdness carried over from the first album, but Haldor Laxness is a far easier listen than Jesus Christ Bobby (there aren't any tracks that make me want to scratch myself).
If you've ever liked Dillinger Escape Plan / Refused / International Noise Conspiracy / Converge this will be definitely be to your liking.

Format: Audio CD
Icelandic five-piece Minus (pronounced “Me-Noose”) first formed in the year of 1998 delivering their diverse and creative mix of hardcore, punk and metal. The band soon formed a growing fan base and introduced themselves to the rest of the world with their fast and ferocious album ‘Jesus Christ Bobby’. The band gained instant praise from the likes of Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Terrorizer and NME. On the back of this initial success, Victory Records signed the band and went on to release two albums, the second of the two was released in June 2003 entitled ‘Halldor Laxness’.
‘Halldor Laxness’ is a monstrous hardcore/metal album with a more melodic approach than their earlier releases. With influences from such bands as Dillinger Escape Plan and Converge, the group deliver a well-crafted and creative album that impacts you with its diverse song structures and guitar sounds/distortion. The brass accompaniment on the track “The Long Face” reflects well the band's urge to adjust and redefine their music style, bringing out an almost jazz-like feel to it.
The album is nothing short of truly inspired hardcore with a million depths and layers to it. Well-produced and reflecting the group's musical talent along with their creative songwriting, if you like your rock with a wall of super thick and chunky guitars thrashing out killer riffs over a blasting drum beat, then this album is definitely for you.
