Reviewed by Sam Lowry

NAG’s latest album “Boys of Europe” reaffirms their status as a powerhouse of punk and metal, delivering a relentless sonic assault that resonates with authenticity and raw energy.

NAG, the Norwegian powerhouse that stormed onto the scene with their debut album in 2016, is back with a vengeance on their latest offering, "Boys of Europe". Their blend of punk and metal captivated audiences then, and their newest release proves they haven't lost an ounce of their ferocity.

After their initial success, NAG seemingly disappeared from the spotlight, leaving fans wondering if they had succumbed to the pressures of adulthood. But true to their rebellious nature, the band emerged from obscurity with ten tracks that showcase their signature sound, now refined and more potent than ever.

"Boys of Europe" sees NAG staying true to their roots while expanding their sonic palette. The album is a relentless onslaught of hard-hitting riffs and raw energy, crafted during stolen moments between the demands of everyday life. From the frantic pace of recording sessions to the chaos of mixing, the band poured their hearts and souls into every aspect of the album's creation.

The album's title, borrowed from a mundane men's clothing store, belies the intensity within. On the title track, NAG delves into Europe's turbulent history, offering a brief yet powerful glimpse into the continent's legacy of conflict. There are no lectures or political analyses here, just a visceral reminder that the struggle continues.

As the final notes fade away, "Boys of Europe" leaves listeners with a sense of unease about the future. Yet, amidst the uncertainty, one thing remains clear: this record demands to be heard again and again. NAG may have aged since their debut, but their music remains as vital and relevant as ever.

In a musical landscape cluttered with pretenders, NAG stands out as a beacon of authenticity. With "Boys of Europe", they reaffirm their status as one of the most electrifying bands in the underground scene. So crank up the volume, brace yourself for the onslaught, and let NAG remind you why rock 'n' roll will never die.
