It`s strange but Denmark has not so many extreme bands, especially grindcore or crust-punk. However, some people still gather together and make new bands. Nervegas is a young name from Copenhagen (the heart of this beautiful country). I was lucky to get a debut tape of this band. Guys are playing traditional crust with all old postulates, sound, songwriting, and so on. The visual part of this release is obliviously made in a traditional way. But, I must admit that the nuclear war theme is damn actual right now, unfortunately…
This small tape brings me so much joy. Awesome straight crust, without any black metal influences, or blast beats, or deep depressive melodies… we have a deal with a fucking old-school stuff! Great riffing, simple but catchy tunes. The general sound is a bit raw, but actually, I really love it. This music has live energy. This also shows you that this stuff wasn`t recorded in a super pro studio with a mega sound engineer. This recording has a strong punk spirit and I appreciate it. Yes, guys have some homework to do, but I am really pleased with this debut tape.
So if crust punk and DIY are not just words to you. Try this small cassette release and you won’t regret it!
