Previously named Mock Death and Nuclear Filth, Icons Of Filth was formed 1979 in Cardiff, UK. Despite the band's extensive touring and recording schedule, they drifted apart in 1985. They remained on hiatus many years until 2001, which yielded a new album nostradamnedus" and a return to touring, though this was cut short when unfortunately, vocalist Stig suffered a heart attack and passed away shortly after a gig in London on October 23rd 2004. Following two benefit performances for Stig's children, Icons Of Filth was disbanded indefinitely. Despite all these years this album is actually a continuation of usual Icons of Filth style: dirty, unkempt, with a low technical level and quite poor sound production. Their typical dirty sound of early 80s decade with intelligent and highly political lyrics related to: anarchism, ecologism, anti-war, etc.
