Jesus Corpse-Dnr = Live in Spanish Harlem
Iconicide are a NYC based band whose sound has ranged from sludgy political dirges to blazing fast thrash, from toe tapping street punk to a lethal mix of dub reggae and death metal. Underlying it all has been what spurred frontman Chris (the Antimessiah) to start the band back in 1988: the stripped down, no nonsense, rip out your guts sound of Early 80s New York Hardcore. Lyrically Iconicide are just as uncompromising. Songs advocating human extinction (Voluntary Human Extinction MovemenT) coexist with assaults on militarism and power for power's sake (F*** It), along with the requisite anti religious barrages (Whoreship, Benediction/Malediction, et cetera). In their long, checkered history, Iconicide have touched the fates of a long list of bands... Today Iconicide is tougher, more worldweary, and just as dangerous.
