No Terror in the Bang is a promising art-rock band I discovered two months ago through Submithub submissions with this addictive song, Poison, released as a single in 2020. For those who haven’t heard about the band before, No Terror in the Bang have started their careers with a single release called; Saule Pleureur (2019), and released only two more singles since then, Sublimation (2019) and Poison (2020). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
No Terror in the Bang is undoubtedly one of the most authentic bands I have heard for some time. They have a super recognizable music style, a combination of diverse elements from rock, metal, alternative, and classic cinematography. I am a big horror/thriller movie/video game fan, and hearing their music was quite shocking to me for the first time. So let me go into some details for you.
As we all know, the French nation has a genuine artistic view of life. In our case, Poison is a specific work with a beautiful touch of the French nation’s cultural character. The composition itself is not like any other; it has its own story with its characters and structure. The music flows flawlessly from the beginning to the end, immediately pulling the listener into its dark world. The instrumentation, on the other hand, is one of the many greatnesses of No Terror in the Bang. Nothing is certain, and nothing is familiar; nothing in this mysterious journey sound like anything else we’ve heard before. The song’s general mood is so irresistible; you unconsciously start imagining some scenes while listening to it. As an artist/composer myself, hearing such music style with such an approach was quite mind blowing to me. Even hard to write about it when the music is this good.
Furthermore, the band shows potential here not only with their authentic music style, exceptional instrumentation, or composing skills – which are more than enough to bring you to the top league in your career – but also with their musicianships. Yes, I am talking about the performance of Sofia Bortoluzzi (composer, vocals). After listening to No Terror in the Bang’s music with her vocals, I don’t know how many people in this world can replace such character on a collective at this level. I always believed that the success of the greatest bands of our era is mostly because of the unique harmony of some members in the band. These special people with special energy ended up together for some reason, without having any idea of their potentials together and kept on making music together with no matter what. And only thanks to that, we have bands like Metallica, Guns’n’Roses, Rammstein, Queen… today. The point here is, I felt the same thing from No Terror in the Bang today while writing my article.
