NERVOUS TREND: Self-titled: 7”

Excellent, excellent single! Nervous Trend plays music that falls into the realm of goth/death rock, similar to Catholic Spit, Christian Death, and Part 1. Instead of focusing on death and decay, they’re tackling gender issues with these two tracks. “Shattered” is nothing short of great. The music builds in tempo at the beginning and hits its stride with the bass and percussion propelling everything forward in a very direct manner. The vocals are just short of being high pitched and switch to something more sober when the mood calls for it. “Decency” is just a bit more urgent and quicker, but doesn’t have that dark, cold, and layered sound of the A side; however, it’s just as strong. I’m looking forward to hearing more from this outfit. Pacing the floor in anticipation.
