A Black Star Burning Trails To Nowhere
Released on March 25, 2004
The Nerds deliver another batch of awesomely evil hymns on their second full length. This release is faster, heavier, and certainly won't disappoint. Stylistically, the Nerds come off like Turbonegro would if their primary inspiration was Antiseen instead of W.A.S.P. That said, as much as the Nerds wear their influences on their sleeves, they always wind up sonding like themselves. This music has a decidedly hardcore-tinged scum punk slant to it, but it leans just as heavily on hard rock. The clear and powerful production on "A Black Star Burning Tails To Nowhere" especially accentuates and compliments the metallic elements of this material. The Nerds further help their cause with really good songwriting. Fans of Zeke, Antiseen, Bulemics, Motorhead, Turbonegro, Hookers will love it to death!
