Hello, Lead bassist of Nil Rovaan here.

We are looking for both a drummer and a DJ, for our experimental band.
Quite hard to explain what we want, other than that we are evolving our ideas constantly and want to change things around,
but also keep what makes us us.

We love a creepy, eerie atmosphere, probably foggy stage, however we'll be going from chugging like gojira, to playing funky nu-metal stuff.
We want to be more than just one thing and we also want to be able to blend these things, for an unpredictable experience.

We are based in Sweden.

We want a drummer that can not only go fast but also play slower technical stuff. (I'm really bad at explaining drumming lol)
We do not need an expert, but if you can hold a beat and evolve with us from there, shit message us, we can work things out.
We have a good idea for what you'll look like, atleast (if you're a man, that is, otherwise we'll rethink it ofc)

You'll be Porkgrinder, the human pig. More on that, if you're interested, it's only aesthetic anyway.
We've also had an idea of a circular drum kit, but that is only up for debate and we'd begin thinking of that later on anyway.

This is all up for debate ofc, if you have your own character, or way of playign that fits the band, we'll ofc look at it all as a band.

DJ time!
Turntables, synth, noisemaker and ambiance player.

Hard to explain, but examples would be a combination of ministry's DJ, incubus DJ and what rammstein's keyboardist does.

Take sounds/samples from our instruments and shift em around like the magician you are and use em in the songs.

We also have ideas to plug our instruments, most likely a bass or guitar (or both) into your mixer(?) and let you mix the sound around and make all sorts of trippy stuff.

 

So, if you feel like you're qualified by any margin, feel free to message us and make some new friends and connections.

Any skill level and gender is allowed, don't be shy.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
