Haust No

Haust No

Hailing from Oslo, Norway, this four-piece punk band have returned with their third release, No. While punk has been a significant influence on Norwegian black metal, I've never heard of a black metal-inspired punk band. Featuring nine tracks that took all of an hour to record, No's production quality will make any black metal purist jealous. With guttural punk chord progressions, black metal vocals and untamed, drums, you're immediately slapped in the face by Haust's raw sound. The title track is incredibly catchy, even though it's rusty and rather abrasive to the ears. No represents everything you should hear on a punk album: social vandalism and civil disobedience. It would be interesting to experience the Oslo punk scene and examine Haust's creative role in it. (Fysisk)
