Nail This One Down

Nail This One Down

Who: Naiad
Where: Hunter on Hunter
When: Friday August 13, 1999

ONE gig on Friday night not to be missed will be Sydney band NAIAD with awesome live Newcastle bands DAVOLA and uni band comp winner COMPOST at the Hunter on Hunter.

Naiad's devastating demo CD of crushing guitars, brooding female vocals and dark metal dirge is a must for lovers of bands such as KYUSS, who the group cites as a touchstone.

Lead singer Judi's gut-wrenching vocals and irony filled lyrics - 'here's another nail in your confidence' - add another dimension to Naiad's scary sound.

Meanwhile COMPOST showed fine form at the uni band comp, selected by the majority of 10 judges a fortnight ago as strongest competitor with a monstrous live sound, tight performance and recording viability. DAVOLA has performed strongly in the XPOZAY band competition, progressing through to the semi-finals with a highly original sound, contained on an independently released CD FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY. Davola is one of 10 groups on the next BOTTLETOP RECORDS compilation SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHERIFF, featuring a track SKIN from its debut CD.

The group splices heavy metal with electronic influences.
