Surely This Will Destroy You fit much better into the land of glaciers and geysers (Iceland) than into their homeland Texas, because their soundscapes are harsh and jagged like a wandering iceberg. "Live In Reykjavik, Iceland" is the first live testimony of the band, which is now in the same breath as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Explosions In The Sky and Sigur Rós. And that after just two albums and just as many EPs. For this event in Reykjavik TWDY selected a handful of songs from the albums as well as two tracks from the debut EP "Young Mountain", although not necessarily the best ones, shook everything up and formed a set out of it, which looks like from one casting thanks to the tension slumbering in the songs. This Will Destroy You are always at their best when their consistently instrumental tracks seem to go up to nothing and finally explode as Walls Of Sounds ("Threads", "There Are Some Remedies Worse Than Disease").
