Led by singer, guitarist Peter ‘Bob’ White (formerly of Sensorium), NFD was formed by musicians of successful bands.
Apart from White, founding member Tony Pettitt, bass player of The Eden House (formerly of Fields of The Nephilim), Simon Rippin (formerly of Nefilim, Sensorium and the re-formed Fields of The Nephilim) released : “Break the Silence” (EP – 2003), “No Love Lost” (album – 2004), “No Love Lost: Live and Unleashed” (album – 2005), “Light My Way” (single – 2006), “Dead Pool Rising” (album – 2006), “When the Sun Dies” (single – 2008), “Deeper Visions” (EP and album – 2008)
The NFD line up on “Reformations” holds Cradle Of Filth lead guitarist James McIlroy, guitarist Chris Milden and drummer Luca Mazzucconi (both of Lahannya joined the NFD ranks in 2009) plus Peter ‘Bob’ White and Tony Pettitt.
Seven powerful tracks, including a cover on Pink Floyd’s ‘One Slip’ (originally penned by David Gilmour and Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera, the Pink Floyd album gets its title “A Momentary Lapse of Reason” from a line of this song’s lyrics).
“Now or Never”, the opening track of the album, breaks out like a thunder proving that this band takes no prisoners.
On the same pace, “The Rapture” leaves the listener breathless while “Remain In Chains” is the best track for headbanging thanks to a its guitar riff and its melodic chorus.
Tony Pettitt’s bass takes the lead on “The Highwayman”, soon to be doubled by the guitar and build a song on a galloping rhythm…
Things cool down a bit on “The Unknown”, keyboards become more obvious with atmospheric pads and violins adding to the guitar phrases until the solo breaks out.
A smooth violin line opens “What Will Be Will Be”, an atmospheric track built on melancholic guitar phrases.
“Reformations” is a well crafted, well produced 32 minutes mini album, a first taste of the full length album ‘Waking The Dead’ which is due to be released during the next months.
