This one is a nice underground gem! I am talking about "Human Chaos" which is the debut MCD by Dubai (United Arab Emirates) based Death Metal squadron NERVECELL. The band rose out of the sands of this wealthy emirate in 1999 and has released also a two track demo in 2004 (both songs can be found again on the "Human Chaos" EP). This year these warriors had even the chance to open for the (annual) Dubai Rock Festival in 2005 where they supported well known acts like SEPULTURA, SAXON or MACHINE HEAD on stage. If you expect just crap here just because of the origination of the band then you are totally wrong! The five tracks of their debut MCD features excellent mid paced Death Metal with a slight Thrash Metal influence. NERVECELL are more into the old school vein as all of their songs have crushing double bass parts, precise and aggressive riffing. Lead guitarist Rami delivers also some excellent and brillant solos and leads where he also incorporates oriental melodies. The vocals are rough and deep, reminding me on some old school acts like SINISTER, DEICIDE or MASSACRE (just to give you a rough description). The band varies within their tracks between mid paced and slower parts only in the title track 'Human Chaos' they have some faster sections. If they add some more faster speed eruptions on their next output then their material will even shred more. The production suprisingly good and can compete without any doubt with international standards. So all in all I recommend fans of early 90s Death Metal to check this EP out. Support the real underground! Don't hesitate to get in touch with the band at www.nervecell.tk. Thrash Till Death!
