At first it seemed as if Iceage was to punk as Liturgy was to black metal. Critically swooned over and unafraid to color outside the lines of the genre, Iceage furrowed many a brow with their unapologetically unique and disjointed take on amplified punk rock. What Iceage do so well on their debut New Brigade is follow in the impressive wake of Fucked Up, a band that treats punk rock not as a definitive genre etched in stone, but as a work in progress that requires change in order to adapt and evolve. The fact that New Brigade was created not by a bunch of savvy music industry veterans but by a handful of Copenhagen teenagers is even more impressive. They are still on their ascent, but if their unbridled momentum continues, Iceage could very well be the face of modern punk for a long time to come. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
