While the debut album "Tales of Agony" still contained short tracks based on the typical hardcore sounds, "DNA" has shown Marinho Nobre’s deeper interest in soundtracks. However it’s not about any poetic or emotional turning points but mixed construction of the songs, designed in more advanced manner.

"DNA" is full of industrial solutions still kept in the New York hardcore style resulting from the merger of electronics and guitars ('Oxymoron', 'Crucify', 'Elektrohell', 'Birds of Prey' and 'Corporate') as well as guitar riffs in 'Good Time' (come back to glory days of Van Halen), and 'Sitting Ducks' (remember Motorhead’s 'Ace of Spades'?)

There is 'Invisible Pain' with elements of both hardcore and alternative rock, and' Broken Record' - despite the CD release date, the song still stands very fresh with both heavy guitar riffs and delicate use of synthesizers, reminding even the Hammond organ.

In addition, this CD contains a whole range of musical styles, including a rock ballad in the style of Jethro Tull ( 'Hilo Sky'), smooth jazz ( 'Still') and RHCP’s funky ( 'Faithless God') with slapped bass in the foreground. However, it was not the best solution to me to the location of 'Still' following an aggressive song 'Broken Record'.

It’s a recommended album and hopefully will be more available for sale through various, legitimate music services.
