Nekra - Royal Disruptor - 7

Labels: La Vida Es Un Mus
Review by: Alex Deller

London’s Nekra have achieved something weird but very cool with their vinyl debut: they’ve tapped into a sound that’s individual and distinct, and yet somehow archetypal. Packed with pushy, muscular riffs and seething bellicosity, each track stands clear and distinct but clicks perfectly into place with its fellows. Depending on the moment protean NYHC stomp or uncouth Boston bludgeon might spring to mind, but ultimately all this raw, urgent, gut-churning power is nothing but pure, unadulterated Nekra.
