Noi!se  - Rising Tide
Band: Noi!se
Land: USA
Titel: Rising Tide
Cat.#: CR112
12`LP 1000  
Release: 2013-01
Beschreibung: NOI!SE - Vielleicht die Band, die wie keine andere die internationale Oi! Szene in den letzten Jahren aufgemischt hat und selbst Leute begeistert, die "normalerweise" bei Bandnamen mit einem integrierten "Oi!" die Augen verdrehen!
NOI!SE aus Tacoma, Washington verschmelzen Verzweiflung und Aggression, Aufbruchstimmung und Kraft in einzigartiger Weise in brachialen Songs, die eine düstere Spannung aufbauen um schlussendlich in mehrstimmigen Chören zu explodieren. Mir fallen auf Anhieb nicht viele (Punk-) Bands ein deren Songs eine solche Tiefe und epische Breite entwickeln. Man muss schon etwas über den Tellerrand schielen, um NOI!SE gerecht zu werden: eine böse Variante von AFI oder ALKALINE TRIO gepaart mit der Schärfe ur-amerikanischer Oi!-Kaliber Marke THOSE UNKNOWN oder NIBLICK HENBANE plus der Melodieverliebtheit von COCK SPARRER oder MENACE. Klingt wahnsinnig - ist es auch! Auf "Rising Tide" haben sich die Jungs um Frontmann Matt nochmals gewaltig gesteigert, vor allem in Sachen Songwriting geht es einen weiteren Schritt nach vorne. Persönliche Erfahrungen und erlebtes Leid werden in hoffnungsvolle, kämpferische Hymnen verpackt die dem Hörer durchaus kalt und heiss den Rücken herunterlaufen. NOI!SE.

Selten haut mich eine Oi Band vom ersten Lied an so um wie diese hier. Noi!se heißt sie, die Band, deren LP nun schon den ganzen Tag auf meinem Plattenspieler hoch und runder läuft und einfach nicht aufhören will, ein weiteres Mal gespielt zu werden.
Die Band kommt aus den USA und hat in den letzten Jahren nicht nur in den USA sondern auch in Europa für viel frischen Wind gesorgt. Leider ist mir bis dato die Band noch nie wirklich aufgefallen und das bereue ich zu tiefst, denn diese Band ist definitiv das Beste, was die USA im Moment zu bieten haben.
Hierbei bin ich überzeugt davon, dass diese Band auch abseits des typischen Oi! Publikums neue Fans gewinnen wird. Es ist packender Streetpunk mit einer Prise Menace und Cock Sparrer sowie einer bösen Prise Alkaline Trio und AFI. Passend zur Musik kommen dann auch die sozialkritischen Texte und der unverkennbare Gesang von Matt daher. Die LP ist streng auf 1000 Stück weltweit limitiert und wurde von Contra Records für Sammler in verschiedenen Farben und Packages heraus gebracht.
Was bleibt zu sagen außer das es eine sehr hymnenhafte und kämpferische Platte ist, die man nicht tot hören kann.

"Watching people as they shout their convictions, don't know if they are fact or fiction" This is a line from the title track of one of the most anticipated records to come out this year. I am going to shout my conviction about this band THIS BAND IS NO BULLSHIT! EVERYONE THAT READS THE SHIT I WRITE SHOULD CHECK THIS BAND OUT. That is a fact and cannot be typed with more personal conviction than I feel.

Rising Tide starts off with the title track and the band comes out swinging. Pulling no punches, they attack the status quo and they attack the left and the right for not getting their facts right. What I love about this song is it is not a shout at the government but at us, the people that elect and build the government. They are not shouting at some politician who will never hear this but they are shouting at us who may just go vote or write that politician or get off the couch and do something. This song is right up their with Idol Action. Large sweeping chorus, bouncing bass lines backed up by thundering drums, and guitars that cut and slash through it all. The dual vocals play off each other so well it adds another dimension to what they can do. I have one slight knock on the song, and at times the band: hit the edit button. The track is like 30 seconds too long. Too much of a good thing is still too much.

False Foundations has a hard street rock feel to it. The guitars are ripping and full of power. There is a little bass fill in the middle of the song that is wicked. Both vocals play well off of each others but it is Matt's delivery that separates his style from so many other singers out there.

Blame '12 is a rerecorded version. Right away you hear a better recorded intro: it is heavier and the song feels just a little faster. The guitar is even better after Matt sings and Nate's vocals are sharp. They have given parts of the song almost a hardcore feel to it. It is much heavier and all of this adds a dark edge to the song. Great job seeing where you can take a good song and make it great.

Time Heals All Wounds starts off the B side. At first, I thought the song wasn't bad, but on the second listen I heard all the different parts and now I say it is a fucking awesome hammer of a song. They are spitting out hammers. The track has a nice mid tempo feel, great guitar parts and Matt and Nate's singing just resonate through the whole album. Powerful song.

Brother In Arms is the second track on the B side. It is also a rerecorded version of one of their older songs. Yet again you can hear the difference right from the intro. They made the intro heavier and gave the whole song a great sense of urgency. Bass sounds amazing on this track.

They follow that up with another new track How The Deck Is Stacked. This is a heavy bass and drum driven rocker. You can hear that hardcore was also a influence on their sound and it just gives them another weapon to make killer songs. Hell, the song even has a little breakdown in it. The lyrics are sharp like razors and cut to the bone.

They finish this album up with a acoustic version of On The Outside. It is cool and sounds great, I just would have loved to hear more new music. That gets me to the issue with this record. As good as the rerecorded tracks are and as cool as the acoustic version is I wanted more new songs! I know I am not alone in that feeling as so many of us just love this band. The record is really good i just was hoping for more. That's all. I am done whining. A great way to start 2013 and a great release from GMM records. Keep up the good work.

I would like to thank my brother Rob for letting me borrow his copy so I can get the review done and out there.

Noi!se - Rising Tide

Contra Records/GMM Records - LP -

US band Noi!se changed the drummer and released this LP called Rising Tide with seven songs (but two of them are re-recorded old ones - Blame and Brothers in Arms plus great acoustic version of On the Outside). Album is opened by great hit Rising Tide (with great video on http://youtu.be/bTj3je1othc) which shows the great and strong musical sides of the band, mainly the two different vocals of bass guitarist Matt and guitarist Nate which are changing greatly also in other songs but in this it is the best. Song is about hard times for working men and about “plastic” crisis. Other new songs are called False Foundations, Time Heals All Wounds and How the Deck i Stacked. And I have to say that all are great bust most of all (istead of the first one) I like the Time Heals All Wounds with great guitar solo and true lyrics. Other lyrics are not so optimistic about false friends but also about the friendship till death for example. LP which I have is red (200 copies) and it was released also in blue version (100 copies) and white (400 copies). Inside is paper with lyrics and big photo of the band plus code for download. This is very good album (like all stuff from Noi!se) and they are still one of the top US bands of nowadays and I am looking forward to some tour across Europe to see them live because it is really great!

Best new American streetpunk band? Still not 100% sure. I do know fors ure that when I heard their 10” ‘This Is Who We Are’ for the first time it blew me away! A piece of wax filled with all killer, and just one filler (a cover from Cock Sparrer’s ‘Take ‘Em All’). So I was pretty fuckin’ excited when ‘Rising Tide’ got announced around the middle (?) of 2012.

Not just excited because of a new Noi!se release, but ‘Rising Tide’ also ment the relaunch of GMM Records (together with the re-release of the Anti-Heroes classic ‘Underneath The Underground’) and it’s release being pressed in very limited quanteties of different coloured vinyl (in coorperation with Germany’s Contra Records).

At first I was dissapointed when I ripped this album out of the parcel. Not because of the music, but mainly because of the fact that ‘Rising Tide’ was advertised as a full-length album only to find out it containt just 7 tracks of which 2 are re-recorded versions of previous released songs (‘Blame’ and ‘Brothers In Arms’) and ‘On The Outside’ is stripped down on this 12” as an acoustic version. But after a while dissapointment took place for excitment again because this band is just too damn good to be ‘mad’ at.

Every song is a anthem on it’s own with amazing lyrics, fantastic and catchy riffs and the great use of dual vocals make me only want to beg for more, more, more! From what I have heard the band is already working on a brand new record for which I can’t wait! Best new American streetpunk band? Yeah, maybe I am 100% sure now.
