understand why Danish label Mighty Music has signed this Dutch thrash band. They are
just a little bit different from the lot. They combine elements of several
genres and do this in a way, so that the band doesn't sound like the umpteenth new
thrash band. In 2011 they released an EP called 'Warchitects' and the band
changed from a 4-piece into a 5-piece. New is guitarist Pascal and also
a new singer Sander has joined the band. One of the members is drummer Ivo
Maarhuis, who also plays in Izegrim.
Why is this band different from the lot?
Well, because their music is a combination of thrash, has metalcore kind of vocals,
progressive elements, especially the guitar soli and that with a certain groove
the songs. It is a kind of combination of Hatesphere, Textures, soli reminding
of the Varney period and that with a nice groove. Neckbreak Nation is technical,
but has succeeded in writing songs that stick. Enough songs to bang your head to and
you are warned, don't break it. That the band dares to take a risk can be seen in letting a
former DJ and hip hop producer master the record. I have to admit that he has
done a good job.
you are ready for some interesting rather technical and groovy thrash, check
