STILL SAVAGE AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
NEW ALBUM OUT NOW
ROCK HARD “Breitbeinig, ehrlich, voll auf die Fresse: Die Mischung aus Hardcore, Punk und Doom/Stoner klingt absolut souverän”
Ox Fanzine “als würden ENTOMBED die grossen AGNOSTIC FRONT covern. Kaum zu glauben, dass das Ganze derart schlüssig und stimmig klingt. Eine Platte, die Spass macht. 8/10”
Pitfire: “Das Hardcore und Sludge gute Kumpane und Trinkgesellen sind, beweist diese überraschend coole Platte einmal mehr.”
Skruttmagazine “tough fast and painful sound that can tear everyone in pieces and I’m enjoying myself in full swing. Rock n Roll death-hardcore becomes my name for this.”
Musikreviews: “Kiffer-Hardcore? “Savage Ritual” ist ein nuancierter Beitrag zum Szene-Geschehen, der aufgrund seiner subtil anderen Geschmacksnote sehr viel Sinn ergibt.”
“sounds like Agnostic Front, Smoke Blow and Entombed meet up for cultural exchange, each equipped with 5 crates of beer” (METAL HAMMER)
NoM means “Nuisance of Majority” – we do admit that this is not a catchy name but it means a lot to us in the sense of the refusal of blind conformity and the support of self-fulfillment. “We were never fitting well in any specific corner and it just feels good not being able to be labeled” states Andre. NoM originates from Hamburg/Kiel in Northern Germany is active since more than 15 years. Especially the chaotic and intense live performances have brought the band a good reputation as a live band and some unforgettable anecdotes.
The music has always been hard to nail down to a specific scene – the music can be best described as some kind of desert rock outfit being on a total destruction tour, incorporating influences from Stoner/Doom and old-school Hardcore into an unique blend. The major influences are pretty broad but the Misfits, Intergrity, Entombed and Kyuss are among the most obvious ones. That is maybe why the band already played support for bands like Cancer Bats, Peter Pan Speedrock, Smoke Blow and Doomriders several times.
The new album SAVAGE RITUAL pays more tribute to the Doom/Metal roots than previous records and combines the output of the past 15 years into an unique blend, where the name tells the story: „music means more to us than just hang around with your best mates – we can let out our aggression and transform it into something physically and mentally positive – this is our savage ritual” says Christoph.
Released on TOANOL RECORDS and BACKBITE RECORDS the band will retain its DIY spirit and full control about the songwriting and style.
With the new album, the band will go on tour again and will play gigs in Germany, Slovenia, Austria and Czech Republic. Stonerheads, Metalfreaks and Punrockers of this world, unite!
