One of the records on my shelf. It got everything i need from a metal band; weird, heavy and really brilliant. Play it very loud.

Buy the album anyway though, It's ace.
This band certainly doesn't have a singer called Jordan Williams......

...I was recommended the band minus by a random site so I thought I'd find samples of them...the description of the band said they were icelandic and claimed as "The noisiest band in iceland"...an interesting statement seeing as all I'd heard from Iceland that I liked before hand was Bjork and Sigur Ros...

...I heard the song "Romantic exorcism" and I was bitterly disapointed...because although yes the guitars were pretty loud...it had a very commercial and punky edge to them...then I saw a sample to another song "Chimera"...it was off their earlier work so I thought there maybe hope for them after all...there it was the loud guitar work...but then...yes...staticly muffled screams...I listened to the whole album and I'll throw in what I heard:

1. Chimera 10/10: The first song from the album and completely sets the chaotic mood...two bars of one chord with the bass wavering everywhere...until the guitars explode into a huge array of fuzzed out sounds (repetitive though they may be I love it)...then it stops followed by the scream of "FIND YOUR POSITION IN LIFE!!!" And the guitars come back in adding to a vortex of intensity...then it stops and the guitars play what I can only describe as an inuhman toy music box...after a few drum breaks and screams later they enter into a kind of chorus like thing...the vocals get more weird combined with the scream until again they enter what they did in the beginning into an implosion of macheo- villained insanity...then it ends with some raw static...and all this in two minutes...

Leisure 9/10: I don't have as much to say on this song as the song above...maybe because this song hasn't grown on me yet but one thing you can guarantee...it is raw and intense...(with a little electronica to give it the minus feel)...

Love. Fear. Anger. Confusion. [minus] have managed to develop a beautifully sounding collage of emotions onto this amazing debut album. I first heard the song "Enemy" and immediately thought to myself: I have to have this album! When I bought it, I was not dissapointed. This has been one of the best cds I have bought in a long while. Jordan Williams vocal talents are amazing and each track is mixed with hardcore energetic moments but also with slower, passionate sounds. This blend creates an amazing sound. [minus] are the metal band of the future, be part of it and buy this brilliant album.

Bleeding Ears and Blurred Vision 18 July 2001
By Matt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
is what u will get when u listen to this cd. One of the loudest hardcore bands i have in my collection. And my collection has some pretty loud cds. This cd fuses good ol NYC hardcore, a dash of electronica, and a sprinkle of nu-metal melodics. But dont worry there isnt much of anything but straight up hardcore. There tons of tempo changes on this record but all the songs seem to flow together very well. Very very well done by the new kings of icelandic hardcore, minus.

Not much left to be said 18 July 2002
By B. Frey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Looks like the other reviewers have nailed every point I would make about Minus. Ferocious avant-garde hardcore, blending metal, intense screaming, a dose of emo, aural assaults, fingernails on the chalkboard kinda stuff. I must say this is a great CD but difficult to listen to if you're not in the right mood. After the first three tracks, the sounds and instruments start to separate a little more and the true enjoyment of the album begins. Then, a break in the middle of the album for a nice slow number so you can catch your breath. But it doesn't take long to dive back into their snarly intense world both to wreak complete and utter havoc and to spread their message of political insurrection and veiled spirituality. Favorite track: "Misdo". Check it out.

jesus christ... dude! 26 Feb. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am from Iceland and have witnessed the very first steps of minus and the incredible progress they've made. This CD is definetally one of the best ever, a terrific combination of noise-core, hardcore and pure intensity... with a touch of emo! Minus will conquer the world, so if you can't beat them, join them
...Jesus Christ Bobby there's a screaming orgasm in my ear...what the drink? Oh yes... 4 April 2008

Leisure 9/10: I don't have as much to say on this song as the song above...maybe because this song hasn't grown on me yet but one thing you can guarantee...it is raw and intense...(with a little electronica to give it the minus feel)...

Modern Haircuts 10/10: The song starts off fast but quietly with a guitar rapidly playing arpeggios and the bass follows...then they suddenly stop and the thudding of an electronic drums and bass briefly makes an appearance. The guitars then explode but the vocals remain spoken in chant until the scream comes back again...but then...the guitars stop with the bass still there the singer goes "This is completely absurd! I was bored! I was put into place!" Rather an unexpected spoken out words...then the scream and explosion of guitars comes back for more chaotic plinkery (not a word but I made it up...meh) and then the use of the words before hand are electronically altered later on in the song to loop over the other layers of this polyphonic sound until it sudenly stops...wow...eggs...

Misdo 10/10:...hmm...I'm not going to desecrate this song by trying to describe it because I'll fail miserably...like the above stuff...only with more of an edge...try it...buy it...set fire to it...

Electra Complex 10/10:...another gem I can't describe...or I'm just being lazy...but no one else here did a track by track review; so it doesn't matter...

Frat Rock 10/10:...I never tire of this sound but this isn't the best song by far...starts with the explosion of guitars and the singer goes "yeah yeah yeah" and then the classic scream is back with the guitars whirling around the sound...then...they decide to structure themselves a bit more and the guitars instrumentalise a very quick journey into a descending minor sequence...after a few more screams the voice is played around a bit more with the use of echo creating the creepy affect on single syllabled words...some more screaming...some of the words spoken out with the same guitaring used...followed by a very long static...that leads into...

Arctic Exhibition 8/10:..the most mellow song on the album...and because of that it's more reliant on electronics and instrumentation...which although are at an outstanding level...*sniff*...I miss the agression...

Liquid Courage 10/10/: Wow...could be deemed unlistenable by some people...you've been warned now...

Denver 10/10: Yep the screaming and fuzzed out dissonant guitars...although the guitars are slightly more cleaner then usual but that doesn't matter...after a little while there's a singable chorus...but to be honest it creates a very eerie affect on this album...the only problem is it's a sign of things to come...but the song is fantastic...even if it does follow the verse chorus structure...

Peccadillo 10/10: I should be bored of the sound by now...but I'm not...screaming and dissonant guitars combined with electronica...still...yay...

Pulse 9/10: Hmm...slightly more melodic from the vocals...nothing wrong with melody...no...I just feel a little out of place here...I'm scared...well then it makes it's point perfectly...

I would recommend this not only to people interested in intense agressive and sinister music...but to even those who like evil electronica (e.g. Aphex Twins Come to Daddy (pappy mixed version) being a prime example)...but to even those who like technical metal...and even those narrow minded metal heads out there (you know who you are) might like this...I'd recommend buying it...but then again it's your choice bobby...then no...Bobby...shut up...
God bless...this is some crazy stuff 1 Sept. 2004

I never even heard of Minus (pronounced mee-noose) till one of my friends introduced me to the psychotic progressive metalcore that they produce. At that time though I liked them, I did not think a whole lot about really checking them out. I was listening to them and I was stoned so I liked it but I kinda forgot what they were really all about. Months later, I decided, for some reason, to check out their site. Lo and behold, I saw two mp3's on there from this cd. I listened to both "Electra Complex" and "Frat Rock." But it was "Electra Complex" that grasped me, and once I heard that song in full surround stereo, I just had to ask my friend if I could borrow it. I ripped the cd, and listened to it all over again and I will say this, Minus are brilliant. Crazy, but brilliant. They are trying out something new here, they are totally uncompromising. It's too bad the new cd is not like this, it's more like Primus mixed with emocore. Which in itself is not bad, it's just I prefer the Jesus Christ Bobby sound. Most of this cd is screaming and all-over-the-place riffs, and if you read some of their lyrics, you will be amused because most of the lyrics deal with everyday things like haircuts and fraternity rock groups. There is only one soft song on this entire cd and it is quite good. The rest are heavy as hell, although the last song kinda delves into the alternative turf a bit and could be considered a bit of a soft song by some. People who say this is just noise and not music are ignorant, they give this cd one chance only and they never listen to it again, they just go by that one chance alone and I know they do. If they give it more chances like I did, they would think different. This is a cd that is worth your money, trust me.
