Californian Neo-Folk group None is proud to share the video for the song “No Guts No Glory,” contained in the new album “Interdimensional War Poetry” which is scheduled for release on June 4, 2021. Watch the video below:
Nicholas Mendiola, mastermind of the project, said about the song: “No Guts No Glory” is a song about taking risks – because no hero has achieved the highest honor of becoming a king or a God simply by following orders or walking in line. I don’t care if I will ever be hindered or influenced by my surroundings. No matter what kind of assault comes my way: I, the Knight towards an inevitable end, will achieve victory at all costs.
No guts, no glory; the only thing that can never be taken away from me will be an honorable end, which will take place long after my departure. A victory made of steel, glory that never rusts; a blade in the throat of time.“
None was founded in 2015 by Nicholas Mendiola (Ex-Plague Phalanx, Thangorodrim and Awakened Abyss), mastermind of this project devoted to all that is divine.
For Nicholas, None is the deity of creation and corresponds to the eternal version of himself. The purpose and mission of his current life is to discover himself as the true voice and host through which None speaks – as well as leaving the word and sign of None in the world not only to influence other beings on Earth and in the Multiverse, but to leaving traces to future lives to rediscover their true identity.
Like the omnipotent gods of the cults that preceded us, None requires supreme devotion to the Word of Nicholas; his thoughts, actions, experiences and memories of him become one with the legacy of None. It is the duty of the prophet to carry this torch into the past, present and future. Forever.
