Fenriz aka DJ V.K.O.M. presents... Trapped Under Vice, Vol. II

Following the success of the first in the Trapped Under Vice mix series by resident A Fist in the Face of God mix-maker Fenriz back in July, we have the highly-anticipated second instalment of the series, imaginatively titled Trapped Under Vice Vol. II. In stark contrast to the style of the first volume, I wanted a style I know virtually nothing about, so I asked Fenriz for a collection of the stuff that had inspired the people who had inspired him to make music. Anyways, here is the intro from the man himself.

Welcome to a time travel to the rock of 1968-1978, all across the globe from Iceland to Australia.

Last year I already made the ultimate journey in that time frame and space, but Dylan
wanted another one – so this is the reason why bands like Coven, High Tide, James Gang, Atomic Rooster, Horse or Buffalo are left out here. Only the track "Jesus Freaks" has been repeated on both compilations.
There is no specific theme to this, but, being me, it is a little on the HEAVY side, hehe. ENJOY THE AUTUMN!!!

1. Fever Tree (USA) "Filigree & Shadow" (1968)
2. Icecross (Iceland) "Jesus Freaks" (1978)
3. Caravan (UK) "Cecil Rons" (and it's RONS not RUNS) (1968)
4. Gun (UK) "Race with the Devil" (1968)
5. Spooky Tooth (UK) "Better by You, Better than Me" (1969)
6. Lucifer's Friend (Germany/UK) "Lucifer's Friend" (1970)
7. Cactus (USA) "Parchman Farm" (1970)
8. Scorpion (USA) "Take A Look At Yourself" (1969)
9. Sir Lord Baltimore (USA) "Lady of Fire" (1970)
10. Black Widow (UK) "In Ancient Days" (1970)
11. The Open Mind (UK) "Thor, the Thunder God" (1969)
12. Flax (Norway) "Demon in Your Heart" (1976)
13. Lobby Loyde & The Coloured Balls (Australia) "Human Being" (1973)
14. Amon Düül II (Germany) "Archangel [Live]" (1975)
15. Jane (Germany) "Janesession" (1975)
16. Black Oak Arkansas (USA) "When Electricity Came to Arkansas [Live]" (1973)

Again, I started with a leftfield-ish track to throw off the posers.

Thanks again to Fenriz for everything, and also to Jim Fitzpatrick for the amazing artwork. He designed the Che logo that they put on t-shirts in Primark these days, you know. Enjoy.

I don't understand how you can have Manilla Road art as the cover without having Manilla Road in the mix.


It is an original piece of art, not owned by MANILLA ROAD you know. The artists flickr is linked on his name in the article, maybe you should check it out.

Thanks a lot for this new amazing comp (I also liked the previous one, the "nasty one", very very much ...).
One thing: Fenriz mentions a previous compilation/collection on old bands of the 60s-70s, which isn't obviously the first Trapped In Vice. Is it posted on the blog? I searched it but could not find it.
Anyway, thanks for all the great tunes posted o this blog!


No, sorry, I don't have the other comp, but maybe I will see if he will let me at it hehe. Like he said, he made it for some tenting buddies is all
