Rock Sound Magazine Review USA Nails' New Album 'No Pleasure'

Post-punk supergroup USA Nails are back with an even more brash, bothersome noise than before.

Choosing raw energy and intensity over the more polished ruckus of their other bands (Oceansize, Future Of The Left, Hawk Eyes), the live-recorded tracks on 'No Pleasure' pulsate with fuzzy aggression - snaling vocals meet buzzsaw guitars with an undercurrent of balls-to-the-wall punk keeping everything sweat-drenched and grungry. Industrial noise and progressive time signatures on "Automated Cyst" and "You Sing For Yourself" are intriguing, but mostly it's an assault on your eardrums: polarising, but impossible to ignore.

7/10
