Nitrogods - Rats & Rumours

Release date: 17.10.2014

In times of increasing digital anonymity and alleged germfree perfection, the rock’n’roll trio Nitrogods from Hanover and Stuttgart has opted for the second time in succession for a more arduous but in the long term artistically more satisfying path. Mind you, their songs don’t fulfil such criteria as absolute tonal purity, musical integrity and clinical sterility – quite the opposite: their second studio recording Rats And Rumours was consciously recorded in a studio featuring analogue technology, in which phenomena such as having to change reels and regularly clean recording heads are part and parcel of the day-to-day routine: “That’s first and foremost a question of attitude and of course fun, because we’re die-hard vintage fans and really enjoyed every single second we spent recording on a venerable 24-track recorder,” guitarist Henny Wolter explains. “Of course this kind of production is much more complex and laborious because you can’t just move whole passages around using the copy & paste function, you really have to be able to play the whole song. Every time you mess up, you have to start all over again. And that’s what makes this kind of production such an exciting challenge, and what you get at the end of the day is real rock’n’roll sound.”
