NEW! THE RISING TIDE (Part 2): Hear No Evil


RELEASED 24 JAN 2011

"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' 28/01/11" - ORGAN ART
"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
"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

"Good isn't a word to be wheeled out when magnificent is still available. Djevara, right here, right now, are magnificent." - Unpeeled.net
"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
"Djevara are a kick ass progressive HC band that really do deliver the goods - 9/10" - StreetVoice UK

"Christ! Djevara are back, twisting and detouring at every other musical second on this hardcore, balls-out third album... the album is a flawless articulation of loss. A superb progression. 8/10" - ROCK SOUND
"Killer stuff. 9/10" - Whisperin' & Hollerin'
"This is more than music, it’s a visceral head trip of brutal ecstasy" - Unpeeled.net

Whisperin' & Hollerin' (Christopher Nosnibor):

"Djevara's sound can be summarised as being noisy and seriously bloody angry. A shoutfest about the eternal theme of alienation, opener 'Jesus vs Mohammed (Ali)' is a relentless sonic assault that serves to set Djevara's stall out perfectly. Over a grunge/metal backdrop characterised by fast fretwork and frenetic percussion, Bass (guitar and vocals, confusingly), hollers himself hoarse about feeding the machine. There's more than a hint of Fugazi about 'Lines in the Sand,' and 'Once More With Feeling (Best Supporting Actor)' is another short sharp burst of pissed-off metallic-edged hardcore punk. The songs aren't linear and are fundamentally bereft of choruses or hooks. But choruses and hooks are for sell-outs and pussies. Things take a turn for the strange on the melodic world-music infused chant of the title track, although it's rather good, and serves as a well-timed respite from the punishing diet of wall-punching anger. 'View from a Glass House' crashes in twice as heavy in contrast, and it's to good effect. Breakneck guitar-playing and pulverising drums momentarily give way to a slightly softer interlude in which paves the way for more tempo, key and signature changes than are readily digested. One thing's for certain: Djevara push the parameters of their genre and inject new life into the grey stylistic trappings of hardcore through their inventive approach and complex structures. Like Breed 77, they blend unusual multicultural influences on their sonic palette. Unlike Breed 77, Djevara infuse their music with these seemingly incongruous styles quite naturally and without overstating any one element. There's no shortage of aggression, though, with plenty of sonic weight and throat-ripping shouting to appeal to even the most fundamental of hardcore fans. It's a pounding race to the finish line with the sprawling six-and-a-half-minute monster 'Rising Tide of the Disconnected,' which sees the band in familiar lyrical and sonic territory. And why not, when it's executed this well? With six tracks and clocking in at 22 minutes, 'Corsa Al Ribasso' is technically an EP rather than an LP. But what it lacks in duration, it more than compensates in intensity. Killer stuff. 9/10"

Unpeeled.net (Chris Watson):

"SOUNDS LIKE? A great big articulate FUCK OFF! With support from guitars, drums, all that shit. Imagine Refused and Skunk Anansie were hanging out with Dillinger Escape Plan and setting fire to the safe little world you’ve built around the fragile certainty that you’ll be saved by a job, a mortgage and a good credit rating. IS IT ANY GOOD? Imagine enlightenment feels like being smashed in the ears by a brick wrapped in pure frustration. There is anger, lots of it, pummelling me into a bloody pulp of bone and meat. I’m feeling disorientated, sweating, flinging myself at walls, concussing myself into a state of pure white energy. I’m obliterated, about to throw myself off the edge, and then it happens. The title track ‘Corsa Al Ribasso’ is there with an acoustic guitar and vocalized harmonies and I’m stunned into a lotus position, still, the sweat pouring down my face the only movement. It’s a moment of rapt beauty, absolute attention. A tear mixes with the sweat. My heart slows. I breathe in through my nose, out through my mouth. Then it ends and ‘View From a Glass House’ kicks me in the head and I’m back flailing against the void. This is more than music, it’s a visceral head trip of brutal ecstasy. Play loud.
For completeness we should also show that certainly not everyone was happy with our experimental change in direction. It's the first record Djevara have pulled less than 4/5 in Kerrang! for example:
