None - Blackstar
Poland is more associated with the more harder kinds of music. What I know of Poland, is limited by bands like Vader, Hate, Behemoth and more of that kind. Now a disc from the Polish Nu Metal formation None has fallen through the door and Im very curious about it. None is a young band, their first album entitled No One comes out of the year 2001. In 2002 they brought out an album called Procreation and with that, a gig followed. When Soulfly had to play in Poland, None was the opening act for the Brazilian squad. In Poland None is well known among the fans, but with this new album entitled Blackstar None tries to open the doors to the surrounding countries. The album starts with Blackstar, a song that has nice riffs and sounds quite professional. The lyrics are quite cool, however you can hear the Polish accent through the English spoken words. Nevertheless, Fajfer has a strong voice which can reach quite high levels. Throughout the cd this is quite well heard. However, the songs are strong, but its the repetition that lurks through the riffs in the song. After 5 songs there isnt anything new and that makes it hard to listen through the material. But when the 8th song hit my stereo, called Empty Words, I recalled some inspiration from Spineshank. Only there was a cool double bass part and the song blasted. Then I decided to listen better and the following songs: Burning Land and Around Me, which is a remix by Tom Horn sounded very nice. None have created a quite nice album with Blackstar. The music is easy listening and the quality is quite compatible with the American Nu Metal bands. But the repetition of the songriffs is quite annoying, however the last 3 tracks made up the record quite well. Good work, if the next album will be less repetition, then None can truly take the world. Tracklist: 1: Blackstar 2: Get Into My Mind 3: Hard On My Way 4: Closed System 5: M.A.S. (Mutual Admiration Society) 6: From Hell 7: The Other Eyes 8: Empty Words 9: Burning Land 10: Around Me (Tom Horn remix) Line-Up: Vocals Fajfer Guitars Metokles Guitars/Vocals Olass Bass Mihau Drums Demolka
