Nain Rouge, The - Whatever Helps You Sleep at Night (CD EP)
Catalog number: SHG07
Resurrecting and perfecting a sound that came and went with bands like Botch, Coalesce, and Deadguy, combined with the technicality and heaviness of early Mastodon, the atmospherics of Isis, and the grittiness that comes from living and playing in Detroit, the Nain Rouge are the very definition of heavy music. Drop-B tuning adds a layer of heaviness that most bands can’t match, added to a surprising ability to bring melody to their brand of mathematical chaos. Explosive off-time rhythms, dynamic syncopation, and the most guttural dual vocals you’ll ever encounter put the Nain Rouge in a class of heaviness all their own.
