Grind core band Nausea from Los Angeles will play the main room of Sonar at the 2012 Maryland Deathfest on Sunday evening, May 27. Although Nausea self-describes as grind core, to me they sound more like a hardcore punk band. Their vibe is definitely an old school, fun, circle-pit inducing kind of thing. Earlier recordings exhibit more of a death metal influenced.
Nausea is comprised of founding members Oscar Garcia on guitars and vocals and Eric Castro on drums, and two new members, Leon del Muerte on guitar (Exhumed/Murder Construct) and Alejandro Corredor on bass (Dia de los Muertos). Nausea were kind enough to reply to a few questions that I sent them. Here’s what they had to say.
What will be on the set list?
The setlist includes music from pretty much every release, from “World Downfall” to “Images of Abuse” tracks. We have new songs, but we’ll wait to play them until they are ready and released.
What other shows to you have scheduled either before or after MDF?
Right after MDF, on Wednesday, May 30, we have a show in LA’s Black Castle with the mighty Nasum, Landmine Marathon and Early Graves. On October 27, we go to Mexico City to do a show with our friends in Anarchus. Hopefully next year we can play some summer shows in Europe and a couple East Coast dates.
Will you have any special items for sale at the deathfest?
We have some new cool shirt designs for MDF.
Do you have a special message for your fans?
Thanks for sticking around all this time, GRIND ON!
Check out these Nausea songs! I particularly like the one from the older demo.
