Oxnard sounds like a great place to have in your rearview mirror, so let us thank the southern California city for giving us grindcore and powerviolence trio Nails. Their releases have come on a steady three-year schedule; their newest, You Will Never Be One of Us, is their first on Nuclear Blast—a label that recognizes a good band as one that goes hard and fast and doesn’t fuck around. Produced by Kurt Ballou of Converge, the record is a staggering, lurching, roaring monster of ugly grindcore and metal noises with tracks that slam, chug, and are on to the next before you’ve absorbed the damage. Then, just to prove they can, they settle in for the eight-minute-plus “They Come Crawling Back,” which is about a third of the total length of the whole record. The listener certainly isn’t cheated in density of experience, regardless of length.
