Scoring higher on STDs than on SATs, Nasty Reputation are excactly what they claim to be; and sometimes even worse.
Nasty Reputation have been part of the Norwegian rock scene since back in 2007. But more than anyone, this lovechild of punk and metal has suffered from a severe case of the childrens disease known as «frequent line-up changes». Despite the constant uphill struggle, the band has now spent over half a decade in the incubator, recording what has to be the most anticipated debut album from a band this unknown.
The first single “Slut Machine” made it to the Top Ten-list of heavy rotated songs on Baltimore’s 97 Underground Pure Rock Worldwide, alongside bands such as Hardcore Superstar, Volbeat and Guns N’ Roses. Debut album “After All It’s Rock’n’Roll” is currently out on all digital platforms, and it’s collecting stellar reviews and radio time all across the world.
With a hard hitting, growling essence of early 80s metal, in the alleys of W.A.S.P. and Mötley Crüe, combined with the straight forwardness and melodic sense of bands such as The Wildhearts and Backyard Babies; Nasty Reputation represent something unique. Not that anyone hasn’t done it before; it’s just that somewhere along the way, this magical thing went out of fashion!
Well, let’s put it this way; Nasty Reputation don’t do fashion, they play rock’n’roll!
