Days of the White Owl is the first full-length album from Californian hardcore punk band, The Nerve Agents. It was released in July, 2000 on Revelation Records and it follows their self-titled EP from 1998.

Overview[edit]

As with their debut EP, the emphasis is on classic style hardcore punk, played at a fast pace – the songs are rarely over 2.5 minutes long.

Piano pieces at the beginning and end – played and written by bass player, Dante Sigona – are in stark contrast to the music contained within. A lot of the songs rely on bass as well as guitar riffs to carry the melody on to its swift conclusion.

The band received some criticism for this album for the lack of originality[2][3] – but by and large it was well received by hardcore punk fans, with its catchy tunes and breakneck pace.
