NADIMAC
NADIMAC
Po Kratkom Postupku
(AreaDeath Productions)
36:17min

Clowns are an uncommon sight in Metal. At least I believe it’s fair to say so. I’ve never seen more than a couple, like the one WARGASM’s “Why Play Around?” album or “World Circus,” by TOXIK. And funnily enough I never really bothered to wonder why clown imagery should be such an obscurity in the Metal world because the answer is, quite obviously, because clowns aren’t that brutal, except for maybe when the clown is also wielding a spiked club and has a Speed Metal tattoo on his left arm. This armed and dangerous clown features on NADIMAC’s new album, “Pro Kratkom Postupku”. Still a young band, NADIMAC have many releases under their belts, mostly in the form of splits with other bands. Their style derives from American crossover acts such as SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, SACRED REICH, and assorted Thrash from the European continent. Hailing from Serbia there’s a strong eastern European influence. Indeed on the very first song, ‘Hapsi Sve’, the band sounds a lot like POKOLGEP. Lyrically, though I can’t read or speak Serbian, I’d guess NADIMAC are a left-leaning political band. The vocalist and back-up singers may sound youthful and exuberant but they are also accusing and vindictive in the way songs of protest typically go, the tracks ‘Samo Kec’ and ‘Udri Pseto’ being good examples. But really any track on the album could serve as an example. An occasional Death Metal growl pops up in the middle of a few songs, adding some variation to the vocals and the songs they inhabit. Using what I wager to be ‘You Suffer’ by NAPALM DEATH as template, the band include an amusingly short cover of KREATOR’s ‘Pleasure To Kill’. Good for a laugh. Other than that “Pro Ktrakom Postukpku’ tends to repetitiveness. The album isn’t bad, but would be better were it a few tracks shorter. Nevertheless, NADIMAC is a band worth checking out. www.myspace.com/nadimacbend, www.areadeath.net
