"CONDEMNED TO ROT"
PUNISHMENT 18 RECORDS
NUCLEAR AGGRESSOR hails from Italy and was formed from the ashes of VIOLENT
ASSAULT back in 2010. The band plays a hellish and aggressive style of Thrash Metal
music. The music takes me back to the early '90's when I was doing a lot of demo tape
trading with bands all over the world. These guys have a very raw and brutal as hell sound.
The Thrash Metal reminds me of a lot of the stuff I was hearing come out of Europe back
in the day. They have a good chunk of German Thrash Metal in their sound, especially in
the guitars. They then add in some heavier and more aggressive drums and guitars to give
them almost a Thrash / Death crossover sound. This was a sound that was starting in the
early '90's when the two genres were merging together. The darker more grittier and cold
elements make it feel like the music is injected with Black Metal influences in certain
places. The vocals are done in a more straight forward mid ranged Thrash Metal sound with
a grittier harsher style. If you were to take early KREATOR, mix in a lot of NUCLEAR
ASSAULT and then sprinkle on some early MEGADETH & SLAYER, then inject a little
NUNSLAUGHTER & ATOMIZER you would end up with NUCLEAR AGGRESSOR
in the end. This is a killer combination of influences in my opinion, so I suggest all Thrash
fiends pick this one up!
