Celebrating their tenth year, NORAis the only one of Alternative Press magazine's "Bands You Need To Know" to name themselves after a character in the classic Christian Slater vehicle "Pump Up The Volume." Lifelong hardcore scene veterans committed to the most forward-thinking end of the heavy music spectrum, NORA infuses their material with dark humor and creative energy. It could be argued that the greatest thing NORAhas achieved with their new record, Save Yourself, is the simple fact that they even managed to craft the damn thing at all. But that would be missing the point. Because through all of the misfortune, anguish, heartache, false starts and agonizing stops that plagued New Jersey's ever defiant chaotic heavy music mainstays as they embarked on the journey between 2003's criticallylauded Dreamers And Deadmen and this one, despite innumerable distractions, NORA has attained their greatest artistic achievement. This is their Master Of Puppets, their Reign In Blood, their London Calling. NORAis reborn.
