The Icelandic song is called “Hatrið Mun Sigra and is performed by Hatari.

ARTIST:

Hatari are an Icelandic techno and punk rock band from Reykjavík. The band consists of Klemens Nikulásson Hannigan, Matthías Tryggvi Haraldsson and Einar Hrafn Stefánsson.

Hatari was formed in 2015. In January 2019, Hatari, with their new song “Hatrið Mun Sigra”, were confirmed as one of the ten acts competing in Söngvakeppnin 2019, Iceland’s national selection for its entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. Hatari won Söngvakeppnin 2019 in March that year, and is thus set to represent Iceland in the Eurovision Song Contest in May 2019.

“Hatrið Mun Sigra” (“Hate Will Prevail”) is written by the boys themselves and has already topped the Icelandic singles chart.

OPINION:

“Hatrið Mun Sigra” is sung in Icelandic and is a thumping electro-rock-dance number full of anger and scaryness! Remember Finland’s Lordi from 2006? Well this is pretty much it but with a dance twist.

PREDICTION:

If it qualify’s at all, I can’t see this being overly popular, but then again most people said the same of Lordi!

LYRICS:

“Svallið var hömlulaust
Þynnkan er endalaus
Lífið er tilgangslaust
Tómið heimtir alla

Hatrið mun sigra
Gleðin tekur enda
Enda er hún blekking
Svikul tálsýn

Allt sem ég sá
Runnu niður tár
Allt sem ég gaf
Eitt sinn gaf
Ég gaf þér allt

Alhliða blekkingar
Einhliða refsingar
Auðtrúa aumingjar
Flóttinn tekur enda
Tómið heimtir alla

Hatrið mun sigra
Evrópa hrynja
Vefur lyga
Rísið úr öskunni
Sameinuð sem eitt

Allt sem ég sá
Runnu niður tár
Allt sem ég gaf
Eitt sinn gaf
Ég gaf þér allt

Allt sem ég sá
Runnu niður tár
Allt sem ég gaf
Eitt sinn gaf
Ég gaf þér allt

Hatrið mun sigra
Ástin deyja
Hatrið mun sigra
Gleðin tekur enda
Enda er hún blekking
Svikul tálsýn

Hatrið mun sigra”
