With their debut album NC’s Day of Suffering deliver a crushing dose of metallic hardcore, ranging from hardcore-driven mosh parts to death metal breakdowns. A seamless union of both genres which gives way to an aural journey amidst dark passages, brooding arrangements and strategically placed blast beats, this record is nothing short of punishing, and it has the lyrical imagery to substantiate it. Suffering is not a term lightly used by this band, for they have managed to craft a sound which matches the rage of their denouncements in one nightmarish offering: a call to release innocents from the talons of greed.
