Drums are for Parades
Style: Heavy Metal
Release date: 1 February, 2011
Playing time: 33:42

Master is the second album released by the Belgian trio Drums are for Parades.
It is by the way produced by Niek Meul and Reinhard Vanbergen (both Das Pop) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana’s Nevermind...).

Master, pun intended, is a masterpiece, just like that. As bold as brass it’s a whirlwind of timeless and audacious sonic attacks.Master combines the urgency and creative need of your favourite punk records with the unbounded musicality of like-minded free spirits like Fantomas/Tomahawak and Mastodon. The Melvins and Masters of Reality are other usual comparisons.

This album constitutes an instant classic of epic and heavy sound-metal (the genre should exist from now on). To enhance your acoustic experience, Master was especially re-mastered for vinyl.

This is a record for all but the hearing impaired, aka those who are happy of the world like just as it is. Don't miss them live!
