Hot off the recent post about The Rival Mob's debut LP, here is another long player that I've been awaiting eagerly - Nails' new LP, 'Abandon All Life.' When their first LP, 'Unsilent Death' dropped it easily made my end of year list, and this one is no different. If you don't know, the band takes elements of death, grind, hardcore, and crust, mix them up, and blow out your fucking eardrums with the end result. This thing is absolutely crushing in terms of speed and straight up aggression. Todd Jones proves again why he is one of the most important guitarists that's been involved in hardcore in the past decade or so. A complete rager from start to finish. All copies were pressed on black, and I read somewhere that the initial run was 3,000 pieces, which is close to being sold out already. That's crazy.
