Rising Tide PT. 2: Hear No Evil
The much anticipated 2nd part of 'The Rising Tide', this record is probably Djevara's most confident, ambitious and expressive. Furiously angry yet poignant and considered, a record of thought-provoking, intelligent hardcore alternative rock. While Part 1 ('Corsa Al Ribasso' or 'race to the bottom' in Italian) was a scathing, disturbingly honest internal reflection on the darkest, most personal parts of the mind through horrendous times, dealing as it did with a suicide and total alienation with the surrounding world, 'Hear No Evil' is about the road back... healing scars, wiping the blood off and against all the odds returning to fight back even more determined than before. 'Good isn't a word to be wheeled out when magnificent is still available. Djevara, right here, right now, are magnificent.' - UNPEELED.NET 'their power, their emotion, the way they turn their limitations into a great big positive and that sum of the whole does make Djevara, their new album and everything that they stand for, absolutely vital. This is a brave honest refreshing committed album, a raw album, a very ambitious album, and ultimately... a triumph of an album. Few would have the guts to even try it.' - ORGAN 'THING OF THE DAY' ' - ORGAN ART (awarded 'THING OF THE DAY') 'powerful as all Hell...'Hear No Evil' is chaotic hardcore that's as emotionally charged as it is socially aware, with particular impact from an account of domestic violence in 'The Tort Of False Light'.' ROCK SOUND 'brilliantly produced, well constructed and mature examples of an approach to songwriting which owes as much to Fugazi, At The Drive-In and Million Dead as it does to the aforementioned Rage... The arrangements [are] dynamic and varied [and] they also know how to produce a lightning rod of a riff as well when such a moment is called for, and how to build their compositions to powerful crescendos. Djevara have already achieved an impressive amount off their own backs; 'Hear No Evil' is testament to that' SUBBA CULTCHA 'Musically the Brit trio have produced a record which is as powerful as the lyrical sentiments it promotes... A heartfelt and powerful release, effectively delivering the band's message and leaving you with more to think about than just six excellent slabs of heavy duty rock you can get lost in.' 12/13 - ROOM THIRTEEN 'Djevara are a kick ass progressive HC band that really do deliver the goods - 9/10' - STREETVOICE UK.
