Hjertestop plays quick punk rock. They’re pretty fast-paced and they manage to keep fun melody infused into each track (that I’ve heard…the ones on their myspace). Both hard hitting and fun, I can hear traces of old school hardcore such as Black Flag or Adolescents as well as newer melodic punk rock like Rancid.
While the music is wild, their stage antics seem to be wilder and overly disgusting . . .
From the myspace:
Watch out for this band!
Last weekend we had a concert in Berlin with 2 bands from Copenhagen. And one of them, called “Hjertestop” were total idiots.
One of the guys punctured his body with several injection needles, and threw the bloody needles at the audience with the words:
” I have AIDS!”.
To everyone not pleased with this form of acts at their concertplaces, this might serve as information.
