Continuing to supply the masses with aural brutality of all types, Southern Lord Recordings are proud to add Southern Californian trio NAILS to their 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 band's own Streetcleaner label and quickly sold through the 1000 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!
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 8th 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. Here are all dates.
