Nux Vomica are without a doubt my FAVORITE neocrust band. The thing I wouldn't really call them neocrust. They have a lot of sludgey overtone but yet they don't at the same time. If you're familiar with the band Wake Up On Fire, the remaining members of that band went on to form Nux Vomica so you know there is some serious shit going down. This album is by far their must melodic than all their other ones. They have a few more albums that are a lot more noticed but this one is straight to their melodic neocrust roots. There's just something about Nux Vomica that makes them my favorite. Is it the fact that they're my first melodic crust experience or the fact that they're just fucking awesome? In any case, do yourself a favor and pick this up today. Oh and this youtube video isn't an exact representation of their album seeing as how I couldn't find from Asleep In The Ashes but this will suffice. Enjoy!
