“…ridiculously, brutally on point; a rousing revival of a sound that, while indeed legacy-affirming and glorious, instantly and continually eradicates any fears of a ho-hum legacy victory lap or halfhearted glory chasing. 9/10” – Decibel
Extreme metal act EXPULSION — which features members of Repulsion, Exhumed, Phobia, Intronaut, Gruesome, and numerous others within its ranks – today drops the molten fruits of their Nightmare Future debut via Relapse Records.
Stream it in full at THIS LOCATION or via YouTube below.
Produced by grind legend Matt Olivo of Repulsion, mixed by Toxic Holocaust’s Joel Grind, and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Mayhem, Faith No More, Halford), Nightmare Future is available on CD, LP, and digital formats via Relapse Records. Physical preorders and bundles are available at Relapse.com HERE and digital downloads can be preordered via Bandcamp at THIS LOCATION.
Spawned from the cerebral mind of Olivo, EXPULSION combines grind, punk, and crust into a caustic musical vomit guaranteed to stack the corpses high. Olivo’s partner-in-grind, Matt Harvey (Exhumed, Gruesome) was recruited over beers in a sweaty Los Angeles apartment to bring his classic brand of oratory assault. The additions of veteran musicians — drummer Danny Walker (Intronaut, Exhumed, Phobia) and bassist Menno Verbaten (Lightning Swords Of Death) — complete the fit-to-burn outfit. Expect nothing but the best of throat-shredding vocals, relentless blast beats, buzzsaw riffs, and raw bass tones. EXPULSION will leave you horrified with their vile brand of classic, ’80s sickness!
“…a giant shot of adrenaline that demands donning a battle jacket and banging your head until it falls off. 9/10” – Metal Injection
“It’s disgusting, unrelenting, and diseased. In other words: everything you’d want from a band featuring this line-up of musicians!” – Metal Sucks
“This record encapsulates the mood and spirit of old school grind, punk, and crust to a tee, which you’d expect nothing less from this veteran lineup. Nightmare Future embodies the phrase Exodus made famous nearly 30 years ago still relevant now: ‘…Throw your elbows in some friendly, violent fun…’ 4.5/5” – New Noise Magazine
“The production is raw yet meaty. The guitars are thick and the drums are like mini gunshots. Even during the chaotic moments of the songs, you can easily identify the riff patterns which makes this album enjoyable right from the first spin. EXPULSION hits the mark with their debut Nightmare Future. They deliver what they promise and don’t disappoint even a bit despite the mountain of expectations the listener may have considering each member’s legacy. 8.3/10” – Metal Wani
“If you like no nonsense, no messing around, rip your head off and melt your face brutal metal, Expulsion’s Nightmare Future is just what the doctor ordered.” — Hellbound
“The tune aims for a pure high. Speed hits nostril. Nerves hit overload. Volume hits maximum. As it should be.” – BrooklynVegan/Invisible Oranges on “Comatose”
“…high speed, take no prisoners bangers that give Iron Reagan or Lock Up a fair fight in the over the top intensity department.” – Metal Riot
“Top notch crust and grind from a very talented crew.” – Transcending Obscurity
“Fast, brutal, raging, and surprisingly infectious, this is a band that were never going to produce a dud, yet there was no guarantee it was going to be as good as this actually is.” – Wonderbox Metal
