Nögl: I Proudly Present

Words by

Published May 17, 2010

Well, yes indeed: why not be proud of what you produce? We were massively proud of a cake we made yesterday. And then proud of the massive turd that the cake produced today. And, hey, wow, guess what? This album’s sweet, shit, satisfying, and sounds kinda like Blink-182 when they decided to get a bit serious just before they broke up five years or so back. Nothing inherently wrong with that; there’s plenty of musical talent in that band, and also in Nögl.
It’s immediately obvious that these are people who know how to write, arrange, produce and get it together even in the occasional po-faced moments where they mess about with Trivium-ish choruses without quite as silly widdly guitar parts—Hit & Run, for example. Nothing to be ashamed of, really: it’s a bit metal, a bit rock, a bit meh. Stefán from Buff and Sigurður from UMTBS guest on here too, proudly.
