It is a fine line to combine brutality, technical requirements and harsh accessibility in such a way, that the result leads to extreme songs, which listeners like to hear and which they can remember.
Nervecell master that impressively. The addition of Middle-Eastern folklore accents contributes a decisive part to this. The Dubai-based band is, above all, an uncompromising Death Metal band, but the charm of the “special ingredients” always resonates. And this is how Nervecell find to musical differentiation. “Past, Present…Torture” marks the group’s third full-length and is the successor of “Psychogenocide” from 2011.
“Past, Present…Torture” was mixed & mastered by Wojtek and Slawek Wiesawski at Hertz Studios (BEHEMOTH, DECAPITATED, VADER) in Poland, the cover artwork was created by Colin Marks of Rain Song Design (ORIGIN, EXODUS, WHITECHAPEL). The album consists of 13 tracks and is the most extreme and versatile NERVECELL record to date. The title speaks for itself, focusing on the state of the world and where we are all headed as a civilization. “Past, Present…Torture” serves as a concise summary for both, the lyrical message and the musical direction. Offering unpleasant truths and a rigorous death metal sound. Just as you know and expect from the beast from the Middle East...NERVECELL!

We can’t wait for you all to have a taste of what’s in store, don’t say we didn’t warn you…"
Progressive metal band from Dubai are going to blow people's minds with their contemporary and energetic music. 'Terraform' is Kaihon's debut release and it's a multi-layered yet catchy affair spanning four songs. It's impressive to see a Dubai-based band collaborating with musicians from India - the album has guest appearances from SKYHARBOR's Keshav Dhar, who has also produced the album, and even Shashank Bhatnagar of UNDYING INC. It's as good as it gets, topped off with amazing artwork from Visual Amnesia (DEMONIC RESURRECTION, CHAOS). Meticulously concocted and executed, this is a contemporary gem in the style, and taking into account that such music is being crafted from this part of the world, it's no mean feat. Fans of forward-thinking, progressive, even atmospheric metal must check this out.
ROLLING STONE (India) is streaming the album in full over HERE.
