Nashgul are a band from Spain that plays a very brutal mixture of crust and grindcore and this is a review of their 2016 album "Carcava" which was released by Selfmadegod Records.
Spoken word samples start off the album before going into more of a heavy and brutal grindcore direction along with some death metal growls and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and there is also a great amount of high pitched screams and the music also brings in a great amount of mid 80's to early 90's influences.
Most of the tracks are very short in length and when guitar leads are utilized they bring in a touch of old school gore/grind and the vocals also mix in crust style growls and you can also hear a great amount of d beat elements throughout the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and movie samples also return in certain sections of the recording.
Nashgul plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in old school gore/grind while the crust and d beats elements makes the songs stand out a bit more, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and Spanish and cover dark themes.
In my opinion Nahgul are a very great sounding mixture of crust and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bethlem Royal" "Satan Freaks" "Cyberpunk Scum" and "Carcava". 8 out of 10.
