NAILS Working On New Material

Reigning as one of the harshest, heaviest bands bearing placement in the realms of hardcore, California trio NAILS has worked its way through the ranks quickly in the past year. From a brand new name a year ago to one of the scene's most-talked-about acts and one of the most unhinged, crushing acts to ever sign to Southern Lord Recordings, NAILS is currently demoing songs for its upcoming follow-up to 2010's acclaimed "Unsilent Death" 14-minute-long full-length massacre. View a few random shots of the recording sessions below, and stay tuned for more details on the new album to be unveiled shortly.

While recording, the band are remaining active, with an onslaught of live performances confirmed for the coming months including a three-date assault on the Northeast U.S., appearances at Scion Rock Fest, the New England Metal And Hardcore Festival, Maryland Deathfest, Rain Fest and more, with a ton of other actions in the planning stages.

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.
