Album Review: Nofuck – Walls of Flesh (MurdHer Records)

Walls of Flesh is the second album from Italian Death Metal band Nofuck & it was released on April 5th 2017 via MurdHer Records.

Nofuck 1

Opening with the title track, Walls of Flesh this is an aggressive start that doesn’t hang about. Heavy vocals with some really eye-opening guitar rhythm. A sudden drops into a second or two of melody before it hits as hard as before sounds amazing. Throw in some crushing drum beats & a solid solo at the end & what you have is a stunning song that builds anticipation for the rest of the album.

Unfortunately nothing hits that high but it’s still a slamming piece of death metal goodness. The short but very sweet, Empire, the chugging guitar in Panther (although the metalcore style vocal change is disappointing) & the groove laden hooks of 99. Its song after song of really enjoyable, modern sounding metal.

Things get even better with Soul to Forge, the solid as hell, Disseminate & the fantastic rhythm of Zombie Love. Nofuck know how to play & they take absolutely no prisoners except during the oddly placed & bland metalcore moments such Time to Close. The penultimate song, it’s the worst of the ten tracks but thankfully Hot Hell California ensures things end on a high.

Gorgeous rhythm & hooks that get right under the skin, it’s a great finish to an album that hits plenty of high notes. The odd misstep with the more metalcore sounding tracks can be forgiven when everything else is so solid!
