Czar – No One is Alone if No One is Alive

Here is an old review for Czar’s No One is Alone if No One is Alive I did back in 2013.

Today I feel like making some chili.  METAL Chili.  Let’s see…. Ive got my base of Opeth;  Lets heat that up.  Ill cut up some Mastodon into chunks and throw that in… there we go.  Lets turn up the heat a little and let that cook for a bit.  Time to open up some cans of Darkthrone and Katatonia, easy on the Katatonia though.  Now to stir up this amazing stew….  Mmmm, smells amazing.  I think I’ll add some Isis to this mix to spice it up, and just a pinch of Gojira.  Taste test….. Needs a little more Mastodon.  Chop chop and added.  Oops, almost forgot….  Must add DOOM.  NEVER spare the DOOM.  Ahh, there we go.  This bad boy needs to simmer for a while.  After cooking this for a bit, i remove the lid and VIOLA…. out comes Czar’s “No One is Alone if No One is Alive.”

This CD kicks all types of ass, from the music itself to its amazing cover art.   What this band brings to the table is the awesome music stew I stated above, and does it with a finesse and sound that is fresh and new;  This is so tough to find these days in metal culture where either bands keep their same formula consistent, which gets boring, or where bands experiment with their sound and end up pissing off the metal elitist.  Jason Novak (guitar, vocals, bass), Brian Elza (guitar), and Dan Brill (drums) really bring their shit together on this fantastic release.

The tracks “Back in Black” and “Spitter Attack” really stick out and catch my ears.  Punishing lyrics, and an aural assault on the ears that evoke anger and serenity without and spares the listener any bullshit.  I am really looking forward to seeing what these guys can do live.  Will you see them open for GODFLESH at the Metro on April 15th?  You can bet your ass I will be there, wearing a fucking chapka!  (Thats a russian hat….Czar…get it?)
