Angor Wat was a Norwegian hardcore band from Trondheim, Norway, formed in 1981. They were based at the UFFA squat and was affiliated with the scene throughout their existence. The members later formed Israelvis in 1988.
This Norwegian outfit displays their political commitment in a highly distinctive HC style: gruff vocals bark over a mid-tempo series of smoky minor-chord progressions, with a very occasional hook to sustain interest. This album tends toward unpleasantness, though the band's desire to communicate makes this an effort well worth supporting.
-Steve Spinali (from Maximum Rocknroll #36, May 1986)
