|.......................................THE BAND AND RECORD OF THE MONTH|
Here is another fantastic surprise from 2004, a new star born that come from the South of the Netherlands. A band with magnetic talent and powerful young musicians. NoCode demonstrates that the music can be made with feeling and splendid harmony, creating a modern and new style, a progressive music which features a set of genuine elements, enclosed into the musical genres as: Progressive Rock, Avant-Garde, Melodic Metal, Experimental Rock, Progressive Metal. We can hear a continuous experimentation and a musical exploration into the instrumental arrangements, giving the listener some soft and delicate passages, of almost ethereal melodies and, at certain moments a heavy rhythm and very aggressive also. The highlights are around the vocals, melodious, soft, heavy, impressive, complemented by power guitars leads, among the drums in exchange with the basses sounds, creating a different atmosphere and a amazing musical piece into all songs. The music of NoCode traffics around bands such as "Within Temptation", "The Gathering", "Anekdoten" and "King Crinson". I really liked a lot, and I hope to hear more about NoCode in the near future. You must listen them urgently. Brilliant and indispensable work, highly recommendable...
