How do you get as far away from dance music as possible? You choose a powerviolence album. And guess what? Weaver fucking loves Nails and Orbital. The many truly has the widest music taste in all the land.
Yes, this week Mark pulls the trigger on powerviolence/crust/grindcore stallions Nails. As far as bands of this ilk go, they are somewhat of an anomaly. After gaining the attention of the mainstream music press shortly before the release of their third album ‘You’ll Never Be One Of Us’, Nails have gone on to create a buzz for themselves. Sometimes for the right reasons, and sometimes for the wrong reasons. We go into both during this episode.
Somehow we end up talking about the band for over an hour. Which is actually longer than their entire discography. Go figure.
‘Unsilent Death’ is their first album. It’s quite an angry affair, truth be told. But don’t hold that against it. They’re a band with one emotion and two(ish) speeds. You’ll either love it or hate it.
Is this album their unsung classic? Is it even an album? As ever, you decide.
