Nagged To Death FYSISK FOR­MAT Sta­vanger hard­core punks keep the Stock­holm fur­nace stocked

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Albums. Lives. Merch. - STEPHEN HILL

The rise of the En­tombed-style rum­ble in the hard­core world over the last decade has risen to the point where it’s ba­si­cally an es­tab­lished genre of its own. And, frankly, what’s not to love about the speed and pum­mel of punk rock mixed with that glo­ri­ously rat­tling buzz of Swedish death metal? Nag have thrown a lit­tle bit of Venom into the mix as well, and their sec­ond al­bum will ob­vi­ously be lapped up by those who just get a giddy thrill out of this type of crusty hard­core. It’s hard to be too neg­a­tive about Nagged To Death – this mu­sic just feels fucking great all the time. But, as fun as it is, the very best of this scene never for­gets how good a group of song­writ­ers the Swedish pioneers were, which is where Nag fall down slightly.
