Draw Into Disorder

Nappy

Pavement Entertainment

October 23, 2020

Album Review By JD Rich

Boston Rock Radio

 

 

Kon’nichiwa! こんにちは!This album review takes us to the Land of the Rising Sun for a new gem served up via Pavement Entertainment. I think this is the first review I’ve done for a Japanese band, and this is one hell of an introduction for me! I’m talking about the third full album release, Nappy, from Draw Into Disorder.

 

As with many bands from overseas, there is no need to open up Google Translate here. Even the Facebook page is mostly English/Japanese kanji, so everybody can understand. Not that a foreign language (to me) would hinder my appreciation, I find music has a way of overcoming linguistic obstacles. With that said, grab some sushi and sake, sit back and let me shine some light on what Nappy has in store.

 

Before cracking into any trio’s background, always press play and prepare myself for reviewer mode. It’s part of my method, so please let me have this. I was first struck by the heavy similarities that Draw Into Disorder has to the American Grunge genre. Bush, Stone Temple Pilots, Nirvana, and even a touch of Nine Inch Nails floated by. Then I started to read their press kit, and there it was in black and white: “They are heavily influenced by the greatest artists from the 90s Grunge scene…” with a list of exampled bands. Spot on! That’s exactly the overall vibe I picked up immediately. As I continued reading, I swear my brain vibrated in disbelief once I came across this trio’s homeland: Japan! Not only did they respectfully pay homage to that era of Rock, but they perfected it! Draw Into Disorder hit their target in a way that eluded even Seattle-based bands. Imagine being from the birthplace of Grunge, only to be outdone by a Japanese band! If that isn’t a kick in the ass to do better, I don’t know what is. Granted, these guys came onto the music scene 30 years after Nirvana blew the doors wide open to the (back then) new format. But, those of you mourning the death of Grunge can find solace in Nappy, an album that could very well usher in a second wave of the lost Rock sub-genre. This time around, Draw Into Disorder added some bite, and amped it up with small tastes of Metalcore. The spirits of all the late greats are absolutely represented (again, with great respect): Kurt Cobain, Layne Staley, Chris Cornell, et al.

 

Fresh blood has been infused into the mostly-defunct Grunge brand, and you’ll want to catch this train before it leaves the station. You’ve got a few days to prepare for your trip into NeoGrunge - Nappy will be departing the station, headed for all points on October 23rd. Until then, ittekimasu 行ってきます.
