The Skinny: London-based Novacaine Nothing are bringing their own take on metal to a wider audience this year with their first major release. The Noughts and Crosses EP featuring lead single “Closure” is a heady mix of grunge, rock and nu metal in the style of Slipknot, Korn and Stone Sour – check out “Closure” above.

The lads are from various places around the globe including Russia, Canada, Hong Kong and France but have all come together through a passion for music. Having played with UK metal acts Death Koolaid, Cryptic Anger, Assimilate and big names such as Exist Immortal, Novacaine Nothing are carving a name for themselves in the fiercely competitive UK metal scene. Noughts and Crosses will be available beginning December 18th, 2015.
