Nemesis – 7” – Mini Review

By James Terry  //  Music Reviews  //  No Comments

Nemesis debut EP out on Head 2 Wall records is some negative hardcore without the formulaic breakdowns. I’ll be honest given Vice-Get Down Stay Down was released on Head 2 Wall I thought it would be a similar style, was pleasantly surprised when I let the needle drop on this EP. I got to say Perfection’s opening reminded me a bit of The Red Chord’s-Blue Line Cretin, really irrelevant point I felt the need to make. The record really has a huge metal feel which just came across as something really different with the way all the elements come together. It is somewhat difficult to describe. My two favorite tracks on this release are Perfection and No Cure. I was trying to avoid the Triceratops reference but if you knew how they sounded it acts as a transition to Nemesis, if not here’s my best attempt to describe it: a mix of metal riffs and punk drumming that resembled like an early Comeback Kid with some gritty vocals is kind of what Nemesis sounds like at times. Overall I enjoyed the release misanthropic lyrics without the run of the mill hardcore style. Worth checking out either at their bandcamp or if you are ever so inclined to buy the record you can do so here. [James Terry]
