The current lineup consists of Dagur (bass), Ingólfur (vocals), Finnbogi (guitar), and the brothers Guðmundur (guitar) and Höskuldur (drums). The project was conceived in late 2005 by Dagur and Ingólfur as a stoner/sludge band, but as members were found, the sonic assault slowed down to a snail‘s pace, becoming a morass of droning doom riffs with a dash of lethargic stoner groove to mellow things out – a tribute to all things slow and heavy, dubbed „öræfarokk“ (wasteland rock). The band has played fairly regularly since its inception, and has established a reputation for intense live performances, crushing audiences with high volumes and organ-shaking vibrations. "Quadriplegiac", the band‘s first full-length released in December 2008, is a three-part concept album: an introverted trip that conjures up images of bleak, glacial sands and strangely, feelings of both despair and hope.
