Nitrous

Where: Tapper - Hard Rock Laager presents
When: 26.03.2011
Time: 22:30

Nitrous on ainuke bänd Eestis ja võib-olla terves maailmas, milles lõimuvad kaks ülimalt muskli- ning detsibellirohket ala: thrash metal ja drag racing. Ansambli Nitrous lõi Eesti esikiirendaja Lauri Kuriks aastal 2004. Seni on bändilt kodumaise plaadifirma Nailboard Records toel ilmunud kaks täispikka albumit, "Dominant Force" (2006) ning "Outlaw Racer" (2008). Hiljuti leidsid aset ka mõned muudatused koosseisus — 2009. aastal lisandus teine kitarrist ning aastal 2010 ka uus laulja, seega möirgab Nitrous täna isegi valjemini kui lämmastikoksiidiga ülelaetav V-8 big-block-mootor. Kui ei usu, tule ja veendu ise!

***

Thrash metal project Nitrous masterminded by drag racing champion Lauri Kuriks effectively combines fast, powerful and deafening machines as subject matter with fast, powerful and deafening music. ... Estonia's, and possibly the world's ... only drag race thrash metal band Nitrous derives its name from the gas called nitrous oxide, used in car racing to increase engine power by injecting it into the intake manifold. Like the gas that creates bursts of considerably more explosive environment, the band Nitrous with its aggressive music injects the audiences with spontaneous spurts of energy guaranteed to induce displays of breakneck moshing. The monstrous quartet initiated in 2004 by the drag-racing champion Lauri Kuriks (guitar) draws its lyrical themes from the world of high-powered engines only, which titles like "Torque Monster", "Pro Mod Action" and "Outlaw Racer" plainly hint at. .... Nitous's newest, sophomore album "Outlaw Racer“, released November 25th, 2008 by Nailboard Records.
