Album info

Kevlar Bikini strikes back with their fourth album meaningfully named "OPT-OUTism". This Zagreb-based hardcore punk trio delivers another comprehensive collection of immensely powerful tunes, which have been saturated with gracious servings of magnificent elements of metal and noise rock. The band sounds vital, relevant, highly energetic throughout the entire album without any intention to decrease the intensity and slow down.

We are talking about the band who did this whole social distancing and self-isolation thing long before it was cool. As a result, they have a new album "OPT-OUTism", which provides sheer sonic aggression separated in ten high-octane compositions, loaded with threatening vocals, massive riffs, catchy basslines and a badass drumming performance that will certainly shake your entire body.

The album was recorded in Soundcage studio by Marizza and mixed/mastered in Chicken Sound Studio by Beli.

Band info

Kevlar Bikini are a hardcore band from Zagreb, Croatia. They have been around since 2010 and play punk infused with metal and noise rock. The band was originally a quartet and released two albums as such, "Explodisiac" (2012) and "Hi-Fi or Die" (2014). They also played a good number of sweaty shows all over Europe.

The Kevlar Bikini quartet was distilled into a trio in 2015, for more oomph. Determined to level up, they took a slightly different turn towards a more snarky, dirty and aggressive soundscape. The result is the third album "Rants, Riffage and Rousing Rhythms", released in autumn of 2018 via Geenger Records.

The band's fourth full-length studio album entitled "OPT-OUTism" is set to be released in May of 2020 via Geenger Records.
