Review Summary: Angry grindcore about having no friends from the Oklahoma Panhandle lmao

Alright so let's get the obvious out of the way first: the band name is amazing. When I first heard about this band name, I began laughing immediately at the awesomeness of the band name. NEIN/11! German nazism and terrorism combined, what a perfect name.

The band is a three man group from the Oklahoma Panhandle, which is basically a giant strip of flat sand with like 7 christian rednecks in semi trucks. That should be enough to be mad about, but Nein/11 choses to be angry about other topics, mainly break ups and having no friends. Seriously. Vocalist Charlie Brosknovik screams into the microphone very clearly about thinking his prom date is ***ing a black dude and that he wants to bust into her room mid sex with an axe and chop her limbs off. He even name drops a few times, yelling "*** YOU CHELSEA!!!" at the top of his lungs, no ***s given. Just look at these song titles, I mean ***. The drumming is awesome, especially in the first track. Adam Fick does a great job changing rhythm and pounding his drumset. Les Donis does riffs hard on the guitar at times, but is seemingly sloppy. The vocals sound extremely angry, like the guy is an inch away from the mic and is popping every blood cell in his brain by screaming at the top of his lungs.

The worst part about the album is that song quality differs from track to track, seemingly getting worse with each song. The first track has crystal clear quality, riffs the hardest, has the best vocals, and is a genuinely good tune. The second song gets a bit fuzzier, and the third song sounds like Burzum. It's weird and the lack of consistency in recording quality is annoying. The fourth track isn't a metal song but rather a really eerie radio snippet that kinda reflects the title of the song, "alone again". It sounds like a guy going insane while listening to the radio. The fifth and final track called ":(" is another metal tune which is a guitar cover of Megadeth's 'Dawn Patrol' but instead of lyrics about mind control or whatever, it's about having no friends. Suddenly, the vocalist starts doing Christopher Walken impressions, and if that isn't enough, he actually eventually turns into another rant about having no friends. It's great.

This EP was recorded in a single day in a trailer house, and it shows. It isn't as awesome as the name NEIN/11 would suggest, but it's still decent enough. I really enjoy the opener a lot and the radio snippet ambient track gives me the chills. If they actually had time in a studio with good quality production and more actual metal tracks, they could pump out another Abandon All Life. Who knows, this band is obviously just having fun, and I had fun too. NEIN/11 NEIN/11 NEIN/11

The name obviously is alluding to nazism. Why else would white Americans name put "nein" in their name, especially when it's a play on words for 9/11.

Quit being a butthurt german and sieg heil.
