2nd album from the Norwegian gutter punk masters. 1st album with new singer Ivar Nikolaisen (formerly of Silver). Gatefold artwork by Flu Hartberg. For fans of early Turbonegro, Dead Boys, Poison Idea. Listen - https://soundcloud.com/tigerfysisiskformat/sets/hadeland-hardcore After a few minutes into the opening track, "Who will save Scandi Rock?" you realize that TGTBATZ asks you a rhetorical question, and it doesn t take many minutes of the song before it is finished. We are talking hardcore punk here, of the most immediate sort. After the success of their debut album Anti World Music" in 2013 (which Norway's biggest paper VG called nothing less than "one of the best ever"), one could perhaps suspected that TGTBATZ feel some pressure before the release of the sequel "Hadeland Hardcore". But pressure presupposes expectations, and expectations are for losers. Instead of cultivating the cliché about the difficult second album, the guys have marched into the studio and spit out a new half-hour with dirty, catchy and defiant quality punk. The references are the same as last (Turbonegro, Poison Idea, Anal Babes), but the music has if anything become even harder. TGTBATZ has previously been referred to as the only band where all members have a mental disorder, and although they have changed with a new vocalist, this claim is still true. The band has in fact teamed up with Ivar Nikolaisen from the Christian rock band Silver on the microphone. And the man who objectively is one of the most charismatic front men in the nation, fits like a fist in anus on this album. Zugly and co are in other words, still rock solid on unsteady ground. Lyrically the Hadelands crew delivers the same family friendly humour that can be valued by everything from a fetes to a pensioner, and the political commitment that many associate with the punk genre are here replaced with a tribute to the close things in life; like beer, sleep and bitterness. This is the album that will get a dried-up alcoholic back on the bottle. TGTBATZ are self declared exporters of government subsidized oil punk, and delivers a dirty audio assault that is highly addictive. "Hadeland Hardcore» works excellent as the soundtrack to bad moral decisions in the evenings, and as consolation the next day.
