Nag is a new punk/metal band from the Norwegian west coast. Although heavily influenced by the old-school of crust punk, hardcore and metal, they don't simply recycle the sounds and themes of the past. Instead, they have overhauled and upgraded them. Dark, hard, primitive, aggressive and a bit strange, their eponymous debut album, recorded and produced by the band and mixed by Haust's Ruben Willem, finds Nag evolving into a behemoth of aggression and weirdness. From the first track to the last, this debut is a real brute and marks the emergence of a new era of heavy music from a scene with a lot of history and great bands.
