Let’s get straight to the point – if NAILS‘ new record Abandon All Life is a howling war cry, then the track “Wide Open Wound” is the battle. Replete with bludgeoning beatdowns, grinding blasts, hyper-distorted vocals, hard-hitting metallic chugs and early death metal riffs, rage intensifies to a climatic end where the guitars wail and militant drum breakdowns send us marching. Clocking in at 3:37, “Wide Open Wound” is an absolute epic for NAILS and it accentuates just how dynamic Abandon All Life really is.
Terrorizer has today joined the front-line of the attack, premiering “Wide Open Wound” for all to hear… RIGHT HERE.
Previously, the album’s crushing “God’s Cold Hands” was released via Pitchfork.
Recorded at Godcity with Kurt Ballou (Converge) and mastered by Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise). Abandon All Life will drop in North America via Southern Lord on March 19th.
With tour plans already coming together to support Abandon All Life, NAILS has locked down a brutal run through the upper Midwest into Canada and down the East Coast at the end of April and beginning of May. The slaughter will kick off at the Chicago-based hardcore fest The Rumble, with two days of bands including The Killer, Xibalba, Early Graves, Twitching Tongues, Crown of Thornz, Hoods, Wisdom In Chains, Weekend Nachos, Expire, Power Trip, Alpha and Omega and tons more. From there, NAILS join vicious labelmates Xibalba on a co-headlining tour with support from Early Graves, sponsored By Invisible Oranges, the trek set to trample through Cleveland, Buffalo, Toronto, Montreal, Albany, Boston, Brooklyn and Philadelphia.
