New EP 6 tracks recorded with a manic care by Johann Meyer (Gojira). Bestial, frenetic, imperial, Narrenschiff is – and there will be no debate on the issue – the hardest and extreme record recorded so far by the Genevans.
From the first few seconds of The Drift, a title that hits your throats like a doberman driven crazy by a week of forced isolation, everything is said or almost: more than fervor or cohesion, which impresses in the NOSTROMO 2019 c is the urge to bite, this irrepressible desire for revenge that drives them, as if they had to show that what was happening, there was for good and that it is useless to return if we is not firmly resolved to raise the bar by eight extra notches.The album ends quite naturally by an extract of the original text, in German, interpreted by a guest, him, much more surprising, since it is Rodolphe Burger, French singer and composer and former leader of Kat Onoma, whose NOSTROMO bassist Lad Agabekov has mastered the latest records. Between the first storm described above and this last storm, not the slightest trace of lull on this EP to the incessant furia which, without a downtime, releases the arrows of hate (Superbia), progresses under a fire (As Quasars Collide) and surine mercilessly none (Septentrion).Narrenshiff is a definitive nail, driven with unheard-of fury. Narrenshiff, above all, shows NOSTROMO in a new light, more determined and impressive than ever, ready to recover, finally, the crown from which they would have long ago inherited it.
