vanmusic.ca on our latest work
I thought you might like to read little bit about this obscure Montreal band that plays a mix of dark rock with trippy themes and instrumental dreamy pieces. Their new CD is a compilation that goes from 1995 to 2005 of their best songs. Before my life is one of the most interesting pieces where they use loops for the vocals. Die Young reminded me of the new wave dark bands from the 90s. Then in reprive they even have poetry in Spanish. The CD is really eclectic, the voice of the vocalist is close to that of Swan’s Michael Gira and actually the duo that Ian and Caro do in some pieces reminded me also of this legendary band called The Swans. The lyrics are explicit, the instrumentation is Gothic in some themes with wild metalish vocals. The Last one Standing is more like a ballad. Interesting CD. Kind of on the dark side, imagine obscure afternoons with black clouds over Gothic churches full of inner pain. Great day to hang myself says one of the lines of their song so you get the idea. Remember London After Midnight?
A few words from René Garcia, producer
NEB contacted me two years ago to work with them on there new project. To be honest, I didn't know these guys and I wasn’t aware they’d been around this long! After spending almost a year recording with them, I surely can say that they have there own unique sound. How can I describe it? Every song is raw emotion filled with powerful melodies and touching vocals. Where were they all this time? Well hidden I guess. These guys are awesome!
-René Garcia (The Brains) -producer
alias René D la muerte
Here's a quote on us from Mr. Jardine
"In the land of indie rock, there are very few bands that can evoke as much emotion as N.E.B.... with haunting melodies and deep lyrics, mixed with ecletic instrumentation...they set themselves apart from everything in the scene."
-Kevine Jardine(slaves on dope) - Uplift Productions
