NčOdNč, who were founded 12 years ago, released a new studio album in July 2017, entitled Children of Tomorrow. In recent years, the band took a natural turn towards harder variations of metal music, a genre they’ve been part of all along.
In a time ruled by stupid phones and too-smart people, the music scene better get ready to welcome (back) a dose of purebred rock’n’roll. NčOdNč are not the same band they were 12 years ago. In the meantime they released their first record Izlet v neznano, were featured on many compilation records, and played many a gig. The original trio of members decided it was time for an upgrade, and now the four horsemen of the post-apocalypse ride on into a new story. The band released a record with pure hard-rock metal entitled Children of Tomorrow.
The new record brings ten new songs, all given a raw-production treatment, all speaking of anger and disappointment over whichever new path we were promised. The title song of the record pummels the old saying about Johnny, who takes up and finishes his studies in aggression and never-arriving bright future. Master of Blood speaks of revenge that represents cleansing (or vice-versa). Untouchables speaks of slaves-by-choice, Big Bad Wolf of the never recognized duality of mankind, Guillotine brings an (intentional) over-the-top call to activism, Humanoid is man’s last hour we are never aware of, Pray for Devil is an homage to man’s overlooked dark side, Downrise a personal account of the Black Sun giving-taking our power, and Bigger than Life an homage to the rare yet powerful moments of burning sensations of being alive.

“Gentlemen, I don’t believe you.”
The legendary band celebrated their 40th anniversary with a massive concert at Ljubljana’s Arena Stožice, where the original line-up (Pero Lovšin-Gnus, Bore Kramberger, Slavc Colnarič, Bogo Pretnar, Marc Kavaš) were joined on stage by numerous prominent guests, including Glen Matlock, original member of the legendary Sex Pistols.
Pankrti have celebrated 40 years of existence by appearing live on stage this year in Berlin, Vienna and Pula. Fans who missed their gig at Stožice will be able to see them at Slovenia’s most beautiful festival, Festival Lent, on the stage that’s most suited for them – the Večer Stage. Pankrti will play the opening gig of the festival.
The band will give us a rundown of their most important songs in their 40-year history, including the legendary Lublana je bulana, Bandiera rosa, Osmi dan, Za železno zaveso, and many more.
The band began their skirmish in 1977. During an intense decade preceding their disbanding, Pankrti recorded 10 records, including 5 studio albums. They are known as the most prominent new-age band, famous across all of Yugoslavia in the 1980’s. They played in of sold-out venues in Ljubljana, Zagreb, and Belgrade, and were important contributors to the youth punk subculture.
They remain an undisputed musical phenomenon to this very day, a band who created cultural and political history with their music.
After a three-decade hiatus, they resurrected in 2007 and played a gig in front of a sold-out crowd at Ljubljana’s Hala Tivoli, bringing back all their major hits. They continued their tour across the former common homeland, selling out legendary concert venues, such as Tvornica in Zagreb and the Belgrade Hall of Culture.
