Bootlegs was one of the bigger names in Icelandic Metal history at the end of last century, between 1986-1991, playing pure old-school unadulterated Thrash Metal. During that time they released 2 full length albums and had songs on couple of compilation albums. The band played all over Iceland and toured in Denmark 1991, and Denmark has not yet recovered from that tour. At the end of 1991 the members of the band all went their separate ways and some continued on with other projects.

1998 saw a comeback with a big reunion concert where most of the members that had been with the band in the early days came together. This was recorded and in 2006 a CD with the recordings was made public. 2004 the band started again with new drummer and played a few concerts around the country in the next 2 years.

2010 one more comeback, but now with original members, the band joined few a big concerts, including playing the inaugural Rokkjötnar festival in 2012 and was welcomed again into the new world of metal. In 2014 Minotauro Records Re-Released both albums (WC Monster and Bootlegs) as Digi packs with bonus songs from the live album. The guys went to studio to record new material which will be released July 2015 and to be followed with some live performances. Bootlegs are back and they are here to show how this was done in the old days. So watch out for the old farts, they still can play some Old School Thrash Metal.
