Soaked in their native Norwegian  ambience, ONDT BLOD (translated to Bad Blood) have today released sophomore LP, NATUR. Brimming with punk, indie-rock and even some old-skool metal; their second full length is exciting from front to back.

Throughout Natur, crunching guitar hooks and slick riffs neatly tie together instrumentation, which creates a solid backbone for vocals that are unapologetic and riddled with angst. That is unsurprising, though, considering some of the themes across ten tracks. Delving into suicide rates, political perspectives, and oppression which are all present in their homeland of SamiLapland.

In no way are we trying to divert attention away from Ondt Blod, but if we were to compare them to an English singing band – because they perform purely in their native tongue – it would have to be Biffy Clyro or Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes. However, their sound is unique and one that will definitely make you open your eyes.
