Nails -You Will Never Be One Of Us

Holy shit, this is one powerful motherfucker of an album (sorry for the chosen words…). Powerviolence grindcore is a term that sticks to the music. This is the bands third full length (if you can call it length with 21 minutes).

Immediately after the first notes I had to think of the first Fear Factory album, not because the style of music is the same, but this album breaths the same brutality and aggression. The heavy mix of death metal, crust, thrash and grind sees to it that the album is one big rage of violence. After you have listened to it you feel like being run over by a horde of mammuts. Napalm Death, Slayer, S.O.D. and Fear Factory rehearsing in the same room could describe the music a bit.

The songs are short but to the point. Some howling solos sound like Kerry King in his youth and the drums pound like a hammer hitting on an anvil. If I tell you that the last track is over 8 minutes, you can imagine how short the rest of the songs are.  That last song is one of the slowest, but heavy as a whale with obesitas. That the album is short is no problem at all, because you keep pushing the repeat button again and again. This music is not for pussies and don’t say I haven’t warned you!

Once a metal head, always a metalhead. My parents thought it would only be a period, but they were wrong. I quit to explain the beauty of metal music to others that are not into metal, because it is something you can't tell in words... It is like explaining to a teetotaller why a cold beer is so nice on a hot day... I started with bands like Accept, Metal Church, Iron Maiden and Metallica in the eighties and I think I will still listen to them when I'm stone deaf and old...
