Israel may never be a true metal hotbed, but it is no longer a
complete wasteland for metal either, with bands such as
making some noise on a worldwide scale.
Nail Within is another young Israeli band, having formed in 2001
and with a self-titled debut album released a year later.
is a melodic death metal album, very much sounding
like Swedish bands of this style, and while the album doesn't
overwhelm with originality, it's not really a faceless clone
either, and a couple of guest appearances by well-known names
such as Mille Petrozza
and Tomas Lindberg
(At The Gates
a good reference point for Nail Within's musical style)
certainly doesn't hurt.
A revamped lineup was announced after the album was released, followed
by a period of inactiviy while some members appeared in
but apparently the band, possibly with the original lineup, is back
in action as of late 2007.
