Most of the tracks on Nails’ third album, You Will Never Be One of Us, clock in at less than two minutes, and yet they never really feel that short because they are so physically pulverizing and sonically arduous. The brutal Oxnard hardcore band don’t really play songs so much as they unleash short, intense bursts of throttling tempos and extreme metallic noise underneath guitarist Todd Jones’ guttural vocals. Don’t expect hooks, harmonies or even bridges on such unsparing, unsentimental blasts as “Life Is a Death Sentence” and “Savage Intolerance,” not to mention the hardly chummy title track. Stalwart howler John Brannon has been avoiding the sunny side of the street since 1981, when his Detroit slugfest Negative Approach paved the way for a uniquely bleak and Midwestern variation on early hardcore.
