Italian grindcore trio NEID have signed to Time To Kill Records for the release of a cover EP entitled “Still Offensive”, set for release on March 15th 2024. With this EP, completed with cover art by famous Italian cartoonist Zerocalcare, the band pays homage to the Italian hardcore scene of the nineties.

The video of the new single “Rebels Today” (originally by Comrades) is now awailable.

The band comments:

“We consider Comrades a seminal band for the Italian d.i.y hardcore & grind scene; one of the very first to play this genre in our region way back in 1993, and immediately a driving force behind the combination of speed and irreverence! Therefore we found it logical to cover their most popular hit”.

1. Intro 90s
2. Rebels Today… (Comrades)
3. Bandiera Nera (Affluente)
4. Ho Sempre Sbagliato (Kafka)
5. Colpire (Contrasto)
6. Noi Due Tagliati In Due (Frammenti)
7. Prodotto Dal Terrore / Sostenuto Dalla Speranza (Flopdown)
8. V x Cambiamento (XcaracoX)

“This EP is a tribute to a musically prolific decade, the one that goes from 1990 to early 2000s, which in our humble opinion has been overlooked for a long time, unlike the acclaimed 80’s! We feel connected to the 90’s for many reasons, mostly because some of us took our first steps in that decade, having played in hardcore-punk bands born in that period such as Tmd, Manifold, Razzapparte and Flopdown. It therefore seemed natural to us to revisit and rearrange a bunch of songs from some bands we have always loved”.

NEID formed in Italy in 2007 from the ashes of few other bands active since the mid-90’s in the DIY hardcore scene. NEID were one of the first musical projects in Viterbo to play raw and grinding fastcore with old school Italian hardcore influences. Although you can clearly detect influences of several hardcore and punk subgenres within their sound you can also find many elements of death metal and grindcore, all masterfully weaved together to bring forth a sound that is equally heavy and cathartic.

To date NEID have played more than 400 concerts all over Europe (Slovenia, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, France, Serbia, Bulgaria, UK, Greece), Asia (Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, China, Japan, Taiwan), Russia and America (United States & Cuba).
