Album name: ‘Bout It
Notorious Australian hardcore outfit Deez Nuts is out with their fourth full length called ‘Bout It. Up until this point JJ Peters has previously written and recorded everything himself. This is the first time there is a solid line-up of band members to enter the studio together. ‘Bout It is the heaviest release to date, lest not forget aggressive!
The aggressive image and sound of the hardcore genre sometimes counteracts the positivity that it radiates with its intentions and messages. Deez Nuts is a band that is no exception to this.
Lyrically it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but you have to admit that the music is catchy. This record contains two 30 (well, 4 and 14 seconds to be correct) second punk bursts, more heavy metal influences with faster double bass and chuggy guitars along with the hip-hop influences that you can’t help but to be reminded of when you hear JJ Peters.
‘Bout It is rebellion in a nutshell, even though it is not a hard nut to crack lyrically. The lyrics are straight to the point. This could be what makes Deez Nuts so aggressive. Embracing partying, broship and two middle fingers to any authoritarian figures.
Another interesting aspect of this record is the hefty amount of guest spots that occurs, including band members from Architects, Hatebreed, Madball, Suicide Silence, Skarhead, On Broken Wings and Endwell. You cannot dismiss the fact that this is indeed ‘unfuckwithable’.
Deez Nuts are solid at what they do, no matter what anyone says, and ‘Bout It proves it big time.
