Norwegian Hardcore in its purest form. Original cover art by Esra Roise. Half Tux follows up the debut Sleep Tall, and though the formula is still ultra poignant hardcore, a lot has happened between the releases. The most noticable change is that singer Jon started to combine his trademark manic aggression with Nordic gloom. Also, Haraball have unleashed what was previously their best kept secret; guitarist Trond Mjøen has become the main factor in many parts of the album, from songwriting to the mixing and production. Thematically, Haraball are not your average hardcore band, with lyrics closer to Nirvana than Agnostic Front. Jon's down-to-earth observations of adult ennui tread the line between bitter seriousness and black humour.
