Guest review by

I still remember the day when I first saw Nervecell's video "Human Chaos" on TV, six years ago, they really pissed me off! I couldn't stand their music, it was too noisy for me, and I hated the fact that they were Arabs doing metal, I just couldn't accept that, why!? Mmmmm because I was too stupid, thinking like that.

Staff pick by

03.04.2011 Arabian death metallers Nervecell have returned to attack our senses with this, their second full length album entitled 'Psychogenocide'.

Brutal, thrashy & progressive yet refined, this album is a natural progression from 2008's 'Preaching Venom' and stands out as one of the best death metal releases of 2011 so far.

Featuring traditional arabic instruments such as the 'Oud', arabic & english lyrics (a rarity in extreme metal), fantastic guitar work and a guest appearance by none other than Karl Sanders from Nile, this is an album that all death metal fans should check out and is a nice example of what talent there is to be found in the Arabian metal scene.

Rating: 10 This album is awesome. Now, I'm overly pleased that Arabs put out such good shit.
However, I was wondering..
Really, what do the lyrics of "Shunq" mean? I'm Arabian, and I don't understand the overall concept yet.
It's all mostly formed of religious-like heretic insults + other random stuff. Anyone know? o_O

This grew a lot for me specially the songs from "Amok Doctrine", to the "The Taste Of Betrayal". BTW do you have any clue about the "Shunq" lyrics?

My favorite song in this album until now is still Psychogenocide but I like all of the other ones . And about Shunq's lyrics , I haven't still figured it out
