NO:IR – Placebo
Release Date: October 16th 2020
Genre: alt rap metal / progressive
Bristol certainly has been churning out some fantastic fresh talent recently and NO:IR are surely to be included on that list of ‘ones to watch’. 2019’s Metal 2 The Masses competition saw this young band bring their dedicated and gripping performance to stages in the southwest where the prize was a slot at Bloodstock Festival and although they didn’t place in the final they definitely earned themselves an audience eager for more!
In a genre blended journey, the fourth release from NO:IR, ‘Placebo’ is an ambient whirlwind of emotions.
Opening with an air of nostalgia inducing vocals and soul tingling guitars somewhat on a Deftones vibe, followed by a drop into their heavier style, reminiscent of Sempiternal era Bring Me The Horizon.
This track is a move in a direction with lot more maturity stock piled with their vision of reimagined nu-metal still in tow.
