Nowar is a Positive Hardcore band from Kiel, Germany who just released their first full length record. It is the follower to their demotape Nowhere, that got released two years ago. Nowar is such a band that got me into hardcore and punkrock music. Not the tough guy shit or the ‘no future’ bands but the ones with positive and constructive vibes. The ones with socio-political lyrics, the ones that were critical towards what’s going on. And that’s what I hear in Nowar’s music. Their sound has a good variety in tempo and style build on a nineties progressive hardcore foundation, it has a melodic hardcore touch, a nice groove at times and an overall good drive.
