Origin: England
Genres: Stoner Rock


Ten Days Before Summer, the middle of three albums released by the British band Hangnail, shows classic stoner metal influences such as Fu Manchu and Kyuss, along with fine Chris Cornell-styled vocals from Harry Armstrong. The album was a perfect match for Rise Above Records, and was an enjoyable stoner metal release. The band released a followup album two years later, in 2001, but were never heard from again and are presumably no more. Armstrong later formed End Of Level Boss.
