“Bad Religion style skatepunk with just a hint of Propagandhi. The drum lines are hardcore, punishing punk rock. Unrelenting, distorted guitar a la 80s thrash metal like Anthrax, 90s punk like nofx. These guys are setting out to achieve a very specific sound, and they do so.” -ISSUES MAGAZINE

Bad Religion style skatepunk with just a hint of Propagandhi. The drum lines are hardcore, punishing punk rock. Unrelenting, distorted guitar a la 80s thrash metal like Anthrax, 90s punk like nofx. These guys are setting out to achieve a very specific sound, and they do so.
An EP acting as the latest of the band’s forays into the fast Punk scene with their brand of Skate Punk, Hardcore and and appreciation for Thrash. ALL YOU CAN HATE is the first with the band’s new vocalist and so sees a fresh start in another year.
The band balances between the nineties Epitaph / Fat Wreck catalog, contemporary skate punk music but also have added up some old school hardcore punk, and metal in these gracious servings of brilliant musicianship.
This is a very strong e.p. [ALL YOU CAN HATE] containing 5 song of energetic, protesting melodic hardcore punk, sounding fresh and modern, technical yet having that old school vibe and lyrics that are rebellious yet all of us can relate to.
Umlaut Records put out Zombies No's latest album, Divided We Fall, earlier this year to some very favourable reviews. Playing some intense melodic punk in a similar vein to Propagandhi .
There are some strong fist in the air chorus lines and a great energy throughout the album. I have no doubt that they would fit easily into a punk/metal line up and be great to see live.
Zombies No can’t decide whether they want to pursue old-school US west-coast Hardcore Punk, melodic and tuneful Punk or jagged contemporary European Skate Punk and this three-fold indecision is their greatest strength.
If melodic hardcore laced with some classic skate punk riffage is your thang, you’re really gonna dig this one!
Zombies No is a punk rock band from Venezuela, based in Paris that are streaming their new EP "Divided We Fall".
The band showcases an ultimate combination of ultra-melodic punk rock, mixed with a bit of hardcore punk and intelligent lyrics about social consciousness(...). Zombies No combine the essence of melodic punk rock and ferocity of hardcore punk attitude with such ease.
When it seemed that venezuelan’s punk reactionary spirit entered in a coma state, Zombies No releases “La única culpa que tengo” so as to give it an electroshock. The songs in between the styles of melodic hardcore and New York hardcore, depicts the sad days that took over on us.”

…Whether it’s a matter of nostalgia or adrenaline, so for they constitute the last of the Mohicans protesters from refractory rock.
