ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alabama’s Korova continue the tradition of under-rated bands from the Southeast with their first proper studio release since their inception in 2001. After a slew of demos, compilation appearances, a 7”, and countless shows with everyone from Agnostic Front to Bones Brigade to Demented Are Go to Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards, Korova have matured into a band that freely mixes influences from the forbearers of 80s hardcore like Black Flag, Negative Approach, and Siege with the more modern aesthetics of stoner metal, power violence, and noise rock. Another Happy Customer is a moody yet relentless assault on the senses that shows a progression far beyond the band’s previous releases.

Korova started in late 2001/early 2002 (depending on who you ask) and have made it through line-up changes, high school, several moves in and out of state, shitty attitudes, and being general broke assholes. Scenepointblank.com said that their first 7" ("If There is a Future") "stinks of being of punk and DIY just like the old days" and the band responded by quoting the review in an ad in Maximum Rock n Roll. They've been banned from more venues than they've been allowed back at. They take everything way too seriously and hate it when people write bios about them because it makes them feel like pompous assholes. Just buy the CD, OK?

Fugitive Equilibrium

Review from Fugitive Equilibrium Web Zine
Korova solves one of the problems with hardcore full lengths: keeping them interesting all the way through. The framework of the music is grimy eighties-style hardcore (Pick Your King era Poison Idea?) with pissed-off, yelled vocals. Throughout the experience, different nuances maim and enhance the band's MO: soured noise rock cacophonies, discordant modern chords phrasings, spoken word tracks, and enough literary references to provoke a few visits to Wikipedia. The result is one hell of a gritty and compelling listen from a band that has its boot firmly planted in the ass of the past, but whose bloodshot eyes aim squarely at the future.

Suburban Voice

Review from Suburban Voice
Korova's style of hardcore punk doesn’t follow any set blueprint. On this album, there’s an abundance of thorny anger. Howls from the gut and a dollop of Black Flag-ish damage on the slower songs and even the bluntness of The Nihilistics at times. They go between hammering ugliness and bursts of speed. It wraps up with the heavy ‘n epic crawl and bash of “Factor X.” I haven’t heard too many good bands from Alabama and these guys are an exception. I’m guessing there’s a lot of political retrogression in their state and if I lived there, I’d probably want to express myself the same way as these three guys.
