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.
Recently, however, for more oomph, Kevlar Bikini has been distilled into a trio. Guitarist Mario Berta now doubles as a vocalist. In addition, the band has taken a turn towards a more snarky, dirty and aggressive sound. Mario’s hoarse and raw voice fits right into that.
Their fourth album meaningfully named "OPT-OUTism" is a 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.
Now more than ever, Kevlar Bikini is ready to hit the road and deliver some of that sonic bile live.
