June 04 – EWÏG FROST – AIN’T NO SAINT (Discos Macarras / Motorpunk Records)

I don’t feel so compelled to creating this review because of the fact that Ewïg Frost (Eternal Frost in English) brings to light a style that I can’t really embrace.

This band hails us from Vienna, Austria and was founded by mastermind Nïïtro back in 2003. Not only is he the driving force behind this trio, Nïïtro is also known as a singer, guitarist, writer and composer. The rest of the personnel is Ace Laze (bass & backing vox) and Raze (drums & backing vox).
