Quarashi

Quarashi was a Rap metal group from Reykjavík, Iceland. The group consisted of rappers Hössi Ólafsson (later replaced by Egill Olafur Thorarensen), Ómar Örn Hauksson, Steinar Orri Fjeldsted, and Sölvi Blöndal (who also acted as producer, keyboardist, percussionist, drummer and songwriter). For live shows, Quarashi was joined by guitarist Smári "Tarfur" Jósepsson (later replaced by Vidar Hákon Gislason), bassist Gaukur Úlfarsson, and DJ Dice (later replaced by DJ Magic).

The group released five studio albums from 1996 to 2005. Their music combined elements of rock, techno, and funk, which lent to an unpredictable style often compared to Rage Against the Machine, Eminem, and the Beastie Boys.
