If you’re in the mood for some carefully curated chaos and brutality*, then Chicago’s Nucleus has the perfect sound for you. The band plays a crushing style rooted in the weird and unpredictable legacy of bands like Demilich, Gorguts and Adramelech.
The band certainly knows how to write a catchy riff. But at the same time, they know how to keep you on your toes by suddenly snatching the riffs away and changing direction. This makes songs like “Entity,” the title track to their upcoming album, all the more rewarding on every listen. The album comes out on June 14 via Unspeakable Axe Records, and includes some spectacular artwork from Adam Burke.
Check out the title track below and get ready to perish into the final frontier.
*And you like space.
