(The Latest in Heavy is the segment where you, yes you, get to discover new music in the realms of metal, hardcore, and the like with the help of a very helpful guide, Robby Beck)
California hardcore band Nails really made a splash in my musical trajectory in 2010 with their sophomore release Unsilent Death. Their potent and fearsome mix of hardcore, grindcore, and powerviolence mixed with some of the best production Kurt Ballou has ever done made it one of the most standout releases in heavy music that year. After a split 7" with Skins Like Iron at the beginning of this year, Nails have officially announced that their next release will be Abandon All Life and will be released next year (hopefully early next year). The album teaser you see below only offers a few sparse seconds of music, but it doesn't disappoint. It sounds noisy, and angry, as all humanly fucks. It seems like we might be getting some Insect Warfare-style noisegrind with this release.
Peep out the teaser below, and be on the lookout for Abandon All Life sometime vaguely next year.
