The now denial - Viva viva threatening


While surfing on the net, i figure out that this diamond is not posted elsewhere, so i'm very glad that i can play the "smart-bad-ass" attitude...
The now denial is a fucking band! consisting of five gay-friendly handsome dolls from bremen,germany and the only think (that is (for)) sure is : with the end of this listening only nausea you should feel (if you still got feelings...)...
Let's start though... Now denial is a tractor-pulling, death-machine created by the ashes of HYBRIS, ENFOLD, HOCUS and DURANGO95, and in 2004 another member (from surf nazis must die (have you seen the movie? totally nuts. HEHE) this time) joined the team. The band has made several tours and released several albums. Here we have their second full lenght from 2004...
I can promise one thing : you'll get you're broomwood (new word, mine) and you won't stop sing along and fighting with ypur grandma ('cos we are in greece and all the hardcore / crusties live with their parents, grandparents, grand grand parents etc. dbill's included (i'm not included))...
I know that i have wrote the words mix, blender etc. a lot of times but if one band has to be named as an explosive mixture of genres and rhythms this band is definetely NOW-DENIAL... Example : the track "rotten,rotten, rotten"  is an ugly hardcore track (we all know it, even if we don't say it) and suddenly turn out to be melodic punk rock with a riff that stays in your little brain ('cos is little, if you're still reading my awful english nonsense(s)) forever... My personal favourites are : slaves, eraser and seek refuge in attack...
When you feel anger, anxiety and boredom all in one this is definetely the right soundtrack to make a walk from exarchia all the way to pagrati (through kolonaki), spit some very expensive "windows" and buy "draminh bougatsa" (no meat you fucker) at ymitou street...
Lyrics about (fuck the) gender, police brutality (with plans about the final extermination of cops), backstabbing stuff (aka "roots"), daily boredom and tediousness (check the eraser's lyrics : "my ass is nailed to the chair. obey, adapt, shut up and feel free.")
too sweet to be punk, too punk to be hardcore, too hardcore to be crust, too cynical to be anything at all

Wolverine :
It seems more and more difficult to write something unbiased about a band when you've met some of it's members... Maybe because you remember the good times, the jokes etc. but mostly because then you realise (when you've talked face to face with someone) whether or not his music/words are sincere or not. When a person is original, his actions are original.

The Now-Denial are original. They deal with very interesting, and to the point, social issues, while musicwise one could say they remind a neo-crust genre, but they are not neo-crust. Very nice guitar mellodies, beautiful groovy bass lines, and galloping drumwork. Again, this is one band that makes you read the lyrics while listening to the record, and this seems like something hard in the punk world lately.

Extra points for their different aesthetic, since they don't use this totally worn out war theme photo bullshit, bringing something fresh to the scene.

Everyone you saw them live in greece (zofos), or elsewhere (also zofos!) has been talking about their marvelous performance.

This is not a new record but definately worth every stamp you will pay for, so that they can send it over to you, since Soren is a pro table Fussball player, and Rob did a killer mastering for Antimob (hehe)!

Now D.e.bi.a.ll
