One of Southern Lord’s most recent label acquisitions, NAILS’ music is beyond brutality; filthy, vicious and raw. Imagine a cross between the good Amrep bands of the nineties (Helmet, Hammerhead, Today is The Day, Unsane) and Cro-Mags Age of Quarrel riffage played at breakneck speeds. Their epic battle cry Unsilent Death was recorded during the cold winter of 2009 at Kurt Ballou’s (Converge, Trap Them, Black Breath) Godcity Recording Studios. The CD version of Unsilent Death was originally released in limited quantities by Six Feet Under Records. The LP version was self-released on the band on the band’s own Streetcleaner label and quickly sold through the 1000 piece pressing. Southern Lord is extremely honored to pick up the torch of this album and let it burn brightly through many more countless battles!

“…stick your face in front of the speakers when their music is on, and prepare for third-degree burns. The Kurt Ballou-produced album is one of the most focused, frenetic and fanfuckingtastic efforts to merge grind’s relentlessness with hardcore’s muscular whomp.” – Decibel

“It’s as if Phobia, Nasum, Dismember, Cursed and Despise You squeezed out a blackened placenta of distorted bass walls, guitars that sound like aluminum on fire, and Jones doing his best imitation of himself being stabbed in the throat. 9/10” – Outburn

“Seemingly coming out of nowhere, Unsilent Death is a fantastic sophomore album from Nails that should provide them with some inclusion alongside some of the best up-and-coming bands in the hardcore scene. 4/5” – Metal Underground
