Don't forget to suck out all the venom

We all contain various cells streaming peacefully throughout our bodies but there are a handful of humans that suffer from panic or anxiety attacks that tend to affect the nerve cells rattling them like a can of paint. But this spray can of paint plans to not only rattle our bones and bodies and brains but spell out the pure intensity that is Preaching Venom, Nervecell's sensational debut. This ten track delight of entertainment shall, as I mentioned beforehand, rattle you more than once as each of these tunes plays fully through from beginning to end. Opener As They Reign & Slither, slowly slithers its way through as the soft mellow essence, drawing you in just as a snake slithers up to its prey.

This mellow runner soon fades away and turns into the more intense and aggressive side with Vicious Circle Of Bloodshed, a drum beating that will make you remember the name Nervecell. The fast pacing drums go non-stop as they beat right along with the guitar riffs which create this fast but mellow rhythm letting the vocals make their way through to growl and shout giving it all they got. This is just the start of what awaits for the middle and ending - only time will tell. Preaching Venom features a special appearance by Psycroptic's David Haley who shreds his talents in every way possible.

Breaking back into the music bit that is Nervecell, we get tossed with Beyond Our Sins, a more softer side of the deathcore/death metal act but it still delivers that powerful intensity that shoves the music directly down your throat, letting your stomach acid burn it up instantly. The guitars are fast and upbeat, never missing a note and showing the styling's of Cannibal Corpse on the vocal side with the fast roaring riffs of Kataklysm. Let whoever listens in on Nervecell be warned but this music is not for the faint of heart.
