Nails: Abandon All Life 12"
Latest album from this California metal / hardcore band. Like a lot of the bands on Southern Lord, they have a really potent and original mix of metal and hardcore, combining the relentlessness of death metal with the blown out, raw recording sound and clipped, efficient songwriting of hardcore. A much more extreme album than their previous one, Abandon All Life is just a pummeling beast, at the same time impossibly heavy and frighteningly raw. If you have any interest in metallic hardcore, this should definitely be on your "to hear" list. Southern Lord Records
