Continuing to supply the masses with aural brutality of all types, Southern Lord Recordings has added Southern Californian trio NAILS to its ever-expanding roster.

NAILS' music is beyond brutality; filthy, vicious and raw. Imagine a cross between the good AmRep bands of the Nineties (HELMET, HAMMERHEAD, TODAY IS THE DAY, UNSANE) and CRO-MAGS "Age Of Quarrel" riffage played at breakneck speeds. Their epic battle cry, "Unsilent Death", was recorded during the cold winter of 2009 at Kurt Ballou's (CONVERGE, TRAP THEM, DISFEAR, BLACK BREATH) Godcity Recording Studio. The CD version of "Unsilent Death" was originally released in very limited quantities by Six Feet Under Records. The LP version was self-released by the band on the Streetcleaner label and quickly sold through the 1,000-piece pressing.

Southern Lord is extremely honored to pick up the torch of this album and let it burn brightly through many more countless battles!

"Unsilent Death" track listing:

01. Conform
02. Scum Will Rise
03. Your God
04. Suffering Soul
05. Unsilent Death
06. Traitor
07. I Will Not Follow
08. No Servant
09. Scapegoat
10. Depths

With plans already in place to record a new release for Southern Lord in early 2011, the NAILS crew will spend the rest of this year on the road.

As previously announced, the band will take part in the Southern Lord-sponsored The Power Of The Riff Festival in Los Angeles on August 8 alongside GOATSNAKE, BLACK BREATH, FROM ASHES RISE, REPULSION, the "Animosity"-era lineup of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY and countless more. In early September they embark on a cross-country rampage that will last over a month, including five dates opening for VENOMOUS CONCEPT.
