Demo cassette from this new Australian hardcore band featuring Bryony from Good Throb on guitar.

Our take: Demo cassette from this new Australian band featuring Bryony from Good Throb on guitar. I’m not sure that any of the information in that previous sentence is valuable because Nasho doesn’t sound particularly Australian, nor do they sound at all like Good Throb. They’re definitely a hardcore band, but they seem to be taking a slightly avant / artsy approach to the genre, with rhythms and harmonies that strike me as slightly askew. While I’m not sure the reference would carry much weight outside of North Carolina, they sound a bit like Raleigh’s own Essex Muro in places. I’m also reminded a little bit of some Toxic State bands… like those groups, it’s clear that the members of Nasho love hardcore (or at least find something about it interesting), but aren’t satisfied to simply ape the bands they’ve heard and liked.
