After the raging assault of the first record I actually wondered if Nails might have calmed down a bit this time out, especially with the addition of another guitarist. NO is the answer, not one bit, in fact in some places they seem even more crushing. Crushing is probably the one word needed to describe Nails as they smack the shit out of you in the 14 minutes or so it takes them to blast through this LP.
After being a tad disappointed I'd only scored a black version of the first record, the fact that black was the only pressing of this record means I'm actually fine with it. I can imagine and understand the disappointment though not to get a cool colour pressing of the record despite the bands intentions on not creating a more sought after and expensive edition. Awesome heavyweight packaging as usual from Southern Lord
