This Hard Edge Micro-Made Music CD produced by the group Nevermind the Hate is a true and straight from the heart affair, without any hype or over -produced mixery. It is a refreshing journey that is long been overdue in this stagnant boring music industry. Nevermind the Hate fills this void with loud and melodic much needed songs. Coming directly from the band to you, there's nothing in between these musicians and their music. They answered to nothing but sweat and hard work, they wrote, recorded and produced every last note on this CD. No compromises were made...it's a rare and beautiful time to capture a band in the stage at which Nevermind the Hate is in. They are dedicated to keeping the music real and will give no quarter. Their hard hitting sound and intelligent lyrics stand tall and strong through this whole CD. So do yourself a favor and check this band out...you won't be sorry. LOVE, Fred Longo: guitars/bass Rick Sage: vocals/percussion Scott Berluti: drums/percussion.
