    Iceland: Hatari

    “Hatred must prevail” – the title of this song is not friendly, but Iceland scored with his martial appearance. In front of a spherical iron cage Hatari moved up a sinister man sat enthroned, with a huge stick on a little struck. The action in front of the ball reminded me a bit of a fetish Party. The Music: Industrial-Pop Mixture.
