Nuclear Altar "Blessed Ruins" - 2013

Nuclear Attack are playing a quite cool Hardcore/Punk combined with D-Beat. Loud and powerful driving mid-paced songs filled with energy combined with deep slower part in the beginning of some songs and incisive guitar lines. Somber, strong and vigorous sung vocals in perfect harmony with the music. In the vein of bands such Discharge, Anti-Cimex, etc.. A quite damn good piece of D-Beat!

"Nuclear Altar are a band from Croatia that plays a mixture of crust, d beat and grindcore and this is a review of their self released 2013 ep "Blessed Ruins".

The ep starts out with a slow, dark and heavy sound and a minute later crust style growls make their way into the music and on the following track the music goes into a more fast crustcore direction.

As the ep progresses the band start bringing in a mixture of slow and fast parts along with some death metal influences and d beats and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and on one of the tracks they bring in a small amount of guitar leads.

Nuclear Alter stick to more of an old school mixture of crust, d beat and grind throughout this recording having a sound that is closer to the mid 80's and they also bring in Discharge and Anti Cimex covers.

Song lyrics cover dark and political themes, while the production has a very dark, powerful, heavy and old school sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this ep.

In my opinion Nuclear Altar are a very great sounding mixture of crust, d beat and grind and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dismal Worship Begins" "Seeing Demons Everywhere" "Gates Forever Closed" and "Blessed Ruins". 8 out of 10."

"Debut album by Nuclear Altar. The group sent us its work, where they feature two cover songs, an intro and 6 songs of their own. Highly energetic D-Beat/hardcore with darkened/crusty atmosphere. Old school attitude, full of aggression with dark and disillusioned lyrics."
