From Pitchfork Review by Brandon Stosuy:
Nails are making some of the most thrillingly extreme music right now but the California quartet is difficult to recommend casually.

They cram their brief, constantly shifting tracks with a chaotic blend of hardcore, D-Beat, grindcore, powerviolence, and death metal. It’s complex music that plows ahead while moving internally in dozens of directions.

But technical descriptions don’t capture what they do so well. When Southern Lord picked up and re-released their 2010 debut LP Unsilent Death after its smaller first pressing sold out, they offered a comparison of 90s AmRep bands and early Cro-Mags going faster than either. That sort of works. So does Eyehategod’s songbook played by 2013 Converge. This music pulls largely from hardcore and comes with plenty of raw emotion attached to it.

Iron Lung are a two piece powerviolence act from Seattle, Washington heavily influenced by hardcore punk and grindcore.

    I would love to win this, I haven’t been to a concert in over a year. It’s been far too long. I’ve never heard these bands, but I like metal and punk and I really like to be introduced to new music.

    This is a must (although… next year they should feature Hammered Grunts as well!)

    Love Iron Lung. Good band with good taste in bands. Heavy launch to summer 2014’s touring band march on Portland!
