Naileater - 2016 - Chains

Naileater is a five piece hardcore punk band from Innsbruck, Austria. Chains is their debut EP. Naileater play an aggressive, crusty brand of d-beat focused hardcore punk. There are no wasted moments or breaths on this EP, everything hits as hard and heavy as it can, creating an intense atmosphere of heavy, dark, crusty hardcore. To be clear, if you don't have a penchant for slammingly heavy and oppressively dark, crusty hardcore then there's not much here for you. This record is long on pounding riffs and oppressive atmospherics. Here's where I would normally list my favourite tracks but there's no need when an album is this consistent, each of these four songs is essential in their own right. Highly recommended. Many thanks to Dead Air At The Pulpit for pointing this out.
