Biography

Tired of being force fed soulless music, Nod’s sound is raw and unadulterated. Influenced by everything from the Seattle grunge scene to B.B. King and Black Sabbath, Nod is a fusion of punk, funk, and metal, yet Nod likes to call their music just straight up rock. Limitless energy and high-octane shows have given Nod the reputation of being a hard-hitting and hard-working band both on and off-stage.

Hitting the music scene in 2004, Nod quickly became known as "one of the best bands in Louisiana." Not timid with getting their hands dirty, Nod takes promotion to another level with aggressive tactics and street teaming.

In just a short time, Nod has played some of the best clubs in Louisiana including The Hard Rock Café (NO), Click’s Billiards (Baton Rouge), Ponchatoula’s Strawberry Festival (2nd largest festival in LA), Mule’s Pub (Hammond), The Buzz (Hammond), Natal’s (Slidell),Changes (Lafayette), Hammerheads (Metairie), Augustine’s (Hammond), The Sports Corner (formally The Firehouse in Covington), Hi-Ho Lounge (NO), Burmaster’s Basement (Arabi), Ledbetter’s (Ponchatoula), The Bar (Fat City), Southeastern Louisiana University... and more.

They have performed with many regional acts like Maven, Chris Grey, In Medias Res, 68 Rouge, and Revelation Theory and national acts like Zebra. Also, Nod's first self titled album has gained support on UC Music, a music video TV show and has been charted in the CMJ on KSLU 90.9 fm, as well as being featured on KLSU 91.1 fm, KOOJ 93.7 fm, KKND 106.7 fm.

Nod is constantly trying to take it to the next level by going back into the studio every summer to record more of their “unique sound". But most importantly, Nod is taking their stage presence and their ability to promote on the road in order to pollute the nation with their music.

Lyrics

Pull

Written By: Nod

All that’s left is hollow
Fill the room with empty bottles
Self-destructions on the way
The line of lies you gave today

Blame the past to solve your problems
Take their sympathy and rob them
Nothing that you do is your fault
Your mistakes are not your calls

Now the feelings gone away
There’s nothing left for you to say
Finding truth in disarray
No more lies from you today

Fill you head with empty space
Turn your back and fall from grace
You’re about to lose the race
Serve it up and have a taste

Pull your head our X3
Of your ass

All you’ve done has repercussions
Try to cry by cutting onions
No one left is feeling sorry
No one comes its time to worry

Now the time to pay is coming
And you’re on the ground and running
Angel eyes with dirty faces
Telling lies and trading places

Now the feelings gone away
There’s nothing left for you to say
Finding truth in disarray
No more lies from you today

Fill you head with empty space
Turn your back and fall from grace
You’re about to lose the race
Serve it up and have a taste
Pull your head our X3
Of your ass

Disbelief

Written By: Nod

Whispers in my silent room
Lie awake within my tomb
Far away society
Empty ache inside of me

Floating through this evil dream
Echoes with a silent scream
Trapped within an unlocked cell
Living in my lonely hell

Oh I disbelieve

You hear me but you can’t feel me
Disbelief
Your eyes see through me

Rattling my twisted cage
Flowing through a midnight rage
Reaching for a helping hand
My knees go weak I can not stand

Falling down upon my knees
Pressing voices circle me
Spinning swirling mist of grey
Slowly steal my soul away

(Chorus)

Take these dreams away from me
God is dead oh can’t you see
That only hope could set me free
But god this hope is killing me

Images turn deathly still
I raise the blade my blood to spill
Drip drip dripping all around
Soaking in the lonely ground

I am cold
I am alone
I’m the darkness old
I’m gone (X4)

Grendel

Written By: Nod

I am
I am
I am
Grendel
I Stand
A Man
Monster some say
Grown cold and naked
Ravenous
Endangered you are
Night falls upon us
Death in its wake
Ever to hunt you
Life is the blood
Grendel
Am I
Am I
Am I
I Am Grendel
