Pounds harder than the hammer of Thor!

Back in the day, a lot of the nu metal genre bands did absolutely nothing for me, but fast forward to the present day as Bristol based band NO :IR have relit a fire that went out many years ago with their single ‘Vanity’.

Vocals are rapped, clean and blood curdling howls make for a convincing delivery. Stuttering and bombastic riffs are pinned down by a tight rhythm section. A laid back calm midsection explodes into a seismic adrenaline rush outro. A sure fire pit opener!
