I managed to win a copy of a Rapeseed EP on Firm Meaty Chunks (the e-zine Dysie had going many years ago now, before I ever discovered WF). I wrote to Vek (I think was his name) and he sent me another CD, and some flyers and shit. I thought it was pretty cool.

Haha, does anyone remeber when X-press wrote Grapeseed in the gig guide? No-one noticed until the guys wrote a harshly worded letter of complaint that was published in the letters section at the front of the magazine. Then it was news! They didn't live it down for a very long time.

I played bass at few Rapeseed gigs. At one of them this badly drunk guy came up to me with a Rapeseed CD and a pen asking me for an autograph. I told him I didn't record on it but he was so blind drunk he didn't seem to understand. He wouldn't let it go, so I just signed it anyway.

They did have some decent riffs.

cool shit,
I ended up spending a year or so with Rapeseed myself as a vocalist. ended up falling in a screaming heap, so now ive started up 2ndgraderenegade with the bass player Stu.

Will be looking for a 2nd guitarist once we find one of those endangered animals "The Metal Drummer"

So you would know Zoda then yeah?
Play any gigs with em? I had a brief stint with em as a Bassplayer. A year before hooking up with Centaur. It looks like every cunts been in Rapeseed at one point or another.

                                                                                 NEVERBORN!

                                                    MADNESS - MY FRIEND. 2005.

   Well I guess the title of the album pretty much says it all. The music is just that Madness Madness Madness.
   After having had a decent listen to NeverBorns Madness my Friend. I have found it virtualy impossible to name any specific submetal genre for Neverborn. As the band don't exactly stick to a certain genre of music.
   But if I was to sum up exactly what the music sounds like I guess it would be TechDeath metal,Nu-Metal,Pantera, early Metallica, Meshuggah and a bit of techno Dance music all thrown into a blender and mixed beyond recognition.   

   The lyrics are pretty straight forward,honest,very very hatefilled and real. While musically it is complete pardox of a tight erratic heavy rhythm. While the melodys border on utter chaos, with multiple vocal passages from Jez and Sam. As well as frantic keyboards that seem hell bent on drilling into your skull and turning Your mind into mash.
   There are some calmer moments in a few songs. But that doesn't last as the aggression soon kicks in again.
   
   Vocals: Midori Caccitore Vocals were pretty gruff and brutal has has since been replaced by Big Mak not long after the album was recorded and has really proved himself to be a hard as nails on Vox. Full off anger and rage. As well as being a bit twisted. He is the perfect if not the only Frontman for Neverborn. The vocals of Midori Caccitore and Jez mix together to create a solid vocal passage. But other times the Vocals contrast to creat the audio chaos and disorinetation.
   Keyboards: A very crucial ingrediant in the Neverborn sound. The Jez's Keyboards range from melodic Piano arrangments to electro techno synth and everything in between. This hels to create the diverse and erratic style of Neverborn.    
   Guitars: Micks solid riffing and timing changes add steel and texture to Neverborn. There isn't so much guitar soloing as it is more riff orientated. Like Fear Factory. The solos are general melodic and technical but without the cheese.
   Bass and Drums: Josh and Ben who I know is a great drummer. Create the solid and tight Rhythm section of Neverborn. Musicaly they are the musical anchor of holding everything together.

"whos laughing now" sounds kind of like Mr Bungle with Panteras "Don't fuck with this" Riff stapled to it. The title track has an interesting techno synth intro that gets hacked up by a chunky guitar riff. Burned to Ash is probly the most popular track with it's almost anthem like chorus. Most of the songs are about bitterness,betrayal,anger and the losing of ones soul.  

   Again not an easy band to describe and catagorise. But brilliant all the same. All in all Neverborn are a twisted, aggressive, chaotic powerfull and unique. NeverBorn is kind of like a seriously pissed off Giant Squid on Acid.

Since Jez is unable to review Neverborns cd's for obvious reasons I have been asked to do those reviews instead. I'mnot sure if my review is any good but I thought I'd give it a shot anyway.

Cool, still cracking on with it?

Vocally atm im trying to get back what i lost from years ago, just starting to make headway now with it. My advice, since no one's asking, if ya plan on getting back to it at any stage, start practicing again at least 10months earlier. hahaha, fuckn madness it is.

and yep Jas, i did hear about the amp on fire shit. We did the same again at a rehearsal one time. This is what happens when you dont match impedances.

I said something very similar to someone once. You need to prepare LONG before a gig (and even more so recording) NOT the week before. This advice was disregarded and I am no longer in a band with that person for largely that reason.

Luckily vocal ability is not a requirement for a teenage toilet grind band who play for beer.

The worse you are, the better you're doing.

Refer to Jez's review of Hated By Humanity.

I actually like Greg's (HBH) vocals. He sang for The Uncreation on several ocassions when did some cover songs. When he's been practising he's fucking loud!

People were so considerate to my feelings back then. i hope the same goes again once we gig.

Thanks again Jez for the review. It was radical.


Josh on the bass holds the beast by the scruff of the neck, alternatively keeping the songs together solidly and lashing out in his own creative flurries, ever the forgotten and humble master of his craft
So much truth in that sentence.


...over ten years of working together without cessation, hiatus or retooling and it has bound them together with a singular direction and vision, and honed their skills and accumulative abilities into a single powerful entity. 
The true Nexus formed in 2002 i think. So... almost a decade.

Just ask Maxi Pee... haha  ;)
I love SVRT666s vocals too... They are pretty uninque.

I'm pretty proud of the two HBH cds for the fact that they don't have production, and everything was recorded on cassette in one take with no drop-ins or Protools 'fix-ups'. So what you get is raw, unrefined, passionately hateful grind/blackmetal full of slip-ups and HUMAN ERROR. I would rather listen to a crusty mistake-ridden punk/crust/grind recording any day over sterile, computer-edited technical "brutal" metal.

Do you mean Behemoth in particular? It's very clinical. It sounds good in it's own way but there is very little 'earthiness' about it.

I always try to get things down in as few takes as possible because it's closer to the true nature of the band. Add to that, being prepared can save you a lot of money!

I miss HBH  :'(

The vocals on madness my friend were done by Sam from morgl and the drums by Ben from Malignant Monster. The member listing on that album is confusing.  ;)

In an hour or two he would have had it fixed, but now you have gone and blurted it out and made him look silly, I hope he adds something about how gay Neverborn's bassplayer is.   ;D

Words already out. Surely you haven't forgotten about the near infamous Mankini photo? Go Josh!
