Status Noll - Self Titled
Review by Brayden Bagnall
Genre/s: Hardcore, Blackened Punk
For Fans Of: Church Whip, Sewer Drainer, Hoax, Divisions, Vile Gash
Hailing from Norrköping, Sweden - Status Noll play raw negative music that draws influence from the likes of hardcore, blackened punk and Swedish D-Beat.
Embracing a decidedly lo-fi (albeit coherent) live sound, Status Noll plow through their songs at either breakneck speeds or glacial, stompy pace - combined the two make for a suitably aggressive and nasty couple. The lyrics are delivered as a hoarse, menacing bark - in both English and Swedish - and are as mean and downtrodden as the music they're accompanying.
In summary: awesome, straight-up, no frills hardcore oozing with malice and dark energy. It's free, it's on bandcamp and it's totally worth your time.
