Ice Pick-Gold Rush

Gold Rush CD
Not Just Words Records

No, not the Icepick with members of Crown of Thornz + Hatebreed. This is the European one. The easy comparison here would be to Germany’s True Blue, who share Icepick’s obvious love of The Cro-Mags, Leeway, and Bad Brains. I definitely prefer True Blue, but this Icepick CD holds up well. Much of it reminds me of Best Wishes era Cro-Mags. Fast, slightly metallic, and to the point. There are no sick mosh parts like Death Camps, but nonetheless this is very good. Judge for yourself by checking out an mp3 on the Not Just Words web page.
