With a name like Nuse and an album title like HUNGWELL, you can only fathom what kind of sound is going to come from this veteran New Jersey trio. What is unsurprisingly dispersed is a bevy of punk-tinged metal with some crossover appeal a la SOD and DRI, as songs like “Death of Flesh” meshes the wares of Propain, Leeway, and Prong while “Wrong” gets in touch with the band’s inner shredder. Providing both furious firepower and whimsical overtones (especially lyrically), Nuse understands how to have fun without forfeiting heaviness, a trait that much of today’s heavy music misses the boat with. For a thrashing good time, check out Nuse’s most recent 12-track endeavor.
