Bootlegs is not trying to be an 80’s Thrash Metal band, they are an 80’s Thrash Metal band.
Bootlegs was one of the bigger names in Icelandic Metal history at the end of last century, between 1986- 1991, playing pure old-school unadulterated Thrash Metal and sometimes called Metallica of Iceland. During that time, they released 2 full length albums and had songs on couple of Compilation albums. At the end of 1991 the members of the band all went their separate ways and some continued on with other projects.
In 2010 original band members came together again and joined few big concert, including playing the inaugural Rokkjötnar in 2012/2015 and with Entombed 2012. In 2014 Minotauro Records Re-Released both albums, WC Monster and Bootlegs as Digi packs with bonus songs from the Live 2006 album.
End of 2014 the guys went into studio to record new material which was released in July 2015 on “Ekki fyrir viðkvæma”. Bootlegs is back in studio again and new material will be ready for release at beginning of next year 2017. The Old boys are back to show you how it was done back in the days.
