Nashgul

Nashgul was born in A Coruna (Spain) in late 2001, but it was not until 2003, with the current line-up, when the band started to play what they really wanted to: Straight to the point fucking grindcore influenced by bands like Brutal Truth, Napalm Death, Assück, Terrorizer and Repulsion, with social/political lyrics but avoiding dogmatism and stupid PC attitudes.

Nausea

Not to be confused with the crust/hardcore punk band from NYC.

Born from the ashes of Majesty, they are not a side project of Terrorizer (as many think incorrectly), but a definite band.  They split up in 1994 and reunited in 2006.

They blend thrash metal, death metal, and grindcore (sometimes with nursery rhymes and folk melodies) to form their own unique style dubbed murder metal.
