Long time ago, i wanted to post this norway's piece of sweat, i don't know why i didn't do it 'till now, but as people use to say "better later than never".
2 : 20 was a band active from 2004 - 2008, who their members have paricipated less or more in other well-known non-blackmetal bands from motherland of black metal. To name a few : boyeng beng, Life... but how to live it?, dead gerhardnes and captain not responsible. They have released this 12'' lp and a seveninch called "God natt til alle barna", both released from On Sjakk Matt Plater records.
The music magic can be described as the majority of colours that punk-rock can create. Beautiful solid drums gives the up-tempo feeling while bass-lines are fast and clear opening perfectly the way for the guitar and the vocals to reserve the main dish. More on the punk-rock side than clearly hardcore, this old wolves gives me a "this is how it's gonna be..." impression. Continuing the legacy of melodic hardcore punk origins of norway (now, that i'm re-thinking it, they are-not "continuing" 'coz these guys, each one of them played a part in creating it in the first place) like other great bands such as Toamol, I.O.U and the rest and they defenetely now how to do it.
For a weird reason i'm in love with the vocals, maybe of the ugly, beer stinking sound-lands that Tor Idar creates in my mind. If you are not too tough for hearing it - i mean if you can listen different things, from pop-punk to power-violence - you gonna worship them.
2 : 20 members nowadays can be found on Knuste Ruter and DANGER!MAN.
