NO:IR – Placebo Song Review

Today we are featuring another promising alternative metal band, NO:IR, from the UK. We have reviewed their powerful song, PLACEBO, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.

NO:IR is a promising alternative metal band I discovered two months ago with this powerful song, Placebo, released as a single in 2020. For those who haven’t heard about the band before, No:ir has started their careers with a single called; Hive in 2019. Since then, they released three more singles, Erase:Me (2019), Vanity (2019), and Placebo (2020). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Today I am writing about a band who haven’t gone further enough in their careers with their releases, yet they have surprisingly developed enough foundations in their musical character. As you can also see when you check out their social media and discography, these gentlemen are quite impressive and professional in handling their empire. Placebo is their only fourth official track, which came to my attention about two months ago, and I couldn’t resist bringing them to Metalhead Community readership’s attention.

Placebo is a very rich song with a tasty blend of different styles as you can also hear. There are many bands out there making modern music nowadays, and I always complain about the similarities in their work. No:ir is certainly a special band in this way, who seems fully aware of the mistakes everyone else is making. First of all, I must admit that Placebo is a very successful piece of work with tons of emotions, exceptional dynamics, beautiful composition, great performances, and world-class production. While I was listening to the song one last time before writing my review, I realized that this is probably the only song that I felt like talking about someone’s performance, which is quite unusual indeed. Has anyone thought about anybody’s singing or playing performance while listening to Metallica’s latest album? I don’t think so. Well, this is why we have NO:IR here today with us.

Furthermore, I’d like to say that I am quite impressed by the level of emotions the band has captured in the record. That is truly impressive. The song has two dimensions. The dramatic part of the song is full of darkness, where the vocalist makes an irresistible impact with his vocals. And when the distortion part kicks in, it immediately stimulates the listener with its energy while maintaining its dramatic feeling. NO:IR defines this style as a blend of rap and metal, and I am a little bit confused about it after listening to this song numerous times. At the end of the day, we all can have different opinions about it, yet the fact is that I see talent, I see potential here.


Technically, Placebo has top-class standards. Hands down. I was hypnotized by the song every time I listened to it. Not sure who was their producer for this song, but he has done a fantastic job by giving life to such beautiful song.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am impressed by NO:IR. They are still at the beginning of their journey. We’re hoping to hear many more releases from them cause this band deserves good things!
