Noção de Nada - Sem Gelo (2006)

What is it?
The only album from Brazilian rockers ‘Noção de Nada’, as far as I know. A shame, really.

Why should you listen?
I initially downloaded one track, ‘Orgânico’, from this for free from and liked it. So, I downloaded the full album, again for free. Being English, I can’t understand a word they’re saying but I can appreciate the language of rock. And so do ‘Noção de Nada’.

What’s it like?
Shouty. Distorted. Surprising catchy at times. There’s not a bad track on the whole album. ‘Ela Não Sabe Ser Feliz’ is fairly standard issue. Two guitars playing single note lines against each other, then in come the crunchy power chords for the shouted chorus. The aforementioned ‘Orgânico’ is notable for the subtle changes in timing on the end of one vocal line from the chorus that completely makes the song.

What’s the best track?
The first track ‘Aspirina’ is probably the best of the bunch. A mixture of power chords and simple riffs again, but the vocals are surprisingly catchy and it’s got loads of energy and urgency throughout.

Who does it sound like?
Like a Brazilian Leatherface with less gravelly vocals, obviously.
