Spitting Nails 12″ LP

Black Vinyl

“Driven and twangy hardcore spattering, loose drums that rip between hard rock, D-Beat and blasts. This debut LP from Hamburg embraces queasy, deconstructed tempos from the shadows of His Hero Is Gone and High on fire. Dynamic and inspired changes are the metal-charged anchor here, with waves of crust and hardcore on the surface. The loose ends could be tied up a bit tighter, but the proto-metal and blast beat moments do not become overtly contrived and convoluted. Overall, Spitting Nails debut is a hasty and impatient delivery that works for this mesh of styles. To be honest, I don’t want to like it as much as I do. The vocals border on excessive post-hardcore scream, but there is a gruff effect that I appreciate and sounds sincere. They’re not overdone and performed with an apathetic anonymous tone. The engineering is extremely fine-tuned.” – Maximum Rocknroll
