Staff review by
Destruktor go about their extreme metal the old school way. Black and Death mixed in equal doses, a couple of goats and skulls on the album cover and an unusually good production and that's it! Nailed has everything the goat & Satan worshipping extreme metaller could ask for.

Come to think of it, the description I just gave might make you think this band is something like Zyklon. Fear not, for they are much better than the lifeless, soulless and utterly bland Zyklon. Destruktor actually know how to write catchy riffs with hints of darkness and obscurity and have just the right amount of sloppiness to them. Although not every riff is as strong as the next and some riffs are repeated a few too many times, the songs are all enjoyable. Australia really seems to have patent on this style of extreme, no balls no glory, ravishing metal. Thanks to the production the pummelling drums, the riffs and the guttural growls all come to their own right while retaining an old school, raw and mysterious vibe. For some reason, but this is of course a problem common in the entire extreme metal scene, the bass is hardly discernible from the guitars. Why do bands keep doing this?
