Nails – Abandon All Life (2013)

I’m really, really new to this album. I’ve only had it for two or three weeks. But it only took me a few seconds to realize that it was one of the best albums I’d heard in a long time. I love me some short, fast songs and this has it in abundance. The production and mixing is goddamn perfect. I know I said earlier that I was a little tired of the Stockholm guitar sound but it works here. The vocals are insane. Like, perfectly insane. Even the artwork is incredible. The band picture is scarier than any of those cheesy black metal bands from Portland. And the songs, which are the most important part afterall, are fucking mint. They write some of the heaviest riffs I've heard in a long time and play them for only ten seconds, which is genius because it leaves you wanting more, MORE, MORE! Now’s the time where I’d usually say, “however…”. But not this time.
Favorite Song: No Surrender (that riff thirty seconds in)
