Novacaine Nothing to Release EP ‘Noughts and Crosses’ on 18th December

Novacaine Nothing

London based Novacaine Nothing are bringing their own take on metal to a wider audience this year with their first major release. The ‘Noughts and Crosses’ EP featuring lead single ‘Closure’ is a heady mix of grunge, rock and nu metal in the style of Slipknot, Korn and Stone Sour.

The lads are from various places around the globe including Russia, Canada, Hong Kong and France but have all come together through a passion for music. Having played with UK metal acts Death Koolaid, Cryptic Anger, Assimilate and big names such as Exist Immortal, Novacaine Nothing are carving a name for themselves in the fiercely competitive UK metal scene.

The band has gone through many struggles to create upcoming EP ‘Noughts and Crosses’ and this release is an amalgamation of all their influences and experiences. Having been through 3 drummers, 4 vocalists, 5 bassists, and 4 guitarists and with members struggling with depression and addiction Novacaine Nothing have channeled all the negative influences in their lives and changed it into artistry for the release ‘Noughts and Crosses’.

EP Trailer:

“Noughts and Crosses” is a metaphor for ups and downs, wins and losses or pains and triumphs one procures over time.  The opening track ‘Kill You’ is about the notion of duality in personality when one is an addict. Second track ‘Smiling’ tackles depression and people’s perception whilst

‘Generation’ is a brilliantly generic ‘fight’ song about letting the world burn. Final track ‘Closure’ is about finding perfection in finality, to come to the end of the road and to transcend it.

‘Noughts and Crosses’ will be available from 18th December

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
