The Portland Mercury says “Nasalrod’s live performances exceed expectations, with vocalist Chairman embodying an unhinged hybrid of David Yow, Keith Morris, and Mike Patton, rarely standing still and typically hovering about four feet off the ground. The dynamic, rhythmic interplay between bassist Mandy Morgan, drummer Spit Stix (of LA punk legends FEAR), and guitarist Mustin Douch is easily one of the most formidable aural attacks in the city.”
New Noise Magazine says “Nasalrod play a spastic take on prog metal that would appeal to fans of Mr Bungle, Brainiac, Jesus Lizard, Primus, or Minutemen.”
Named after the bone in Screamin’ Jay’s nose, Nasalrod has found that originality and insanity can go hand in hand. Lead singer Chairman’s sneering, kooky yet soulful vocals soar over a sound that is simultaneously melodic, violent and convulsive. Spit Stix (a founding member of the seminal L.A. punk band FEAR), guitarist Mustin Douch, and bassist Mandy Morgan (formerly of Recess Records band Berzerk) provide a sonic backdrop that is the twisted and theatrical heart of Nasalrod.
The Portland band’s “Building Machines” LP was released on Nadine Records in the fall of 2017, and armed with their notoriously frantic live show, Nasalrod has shared stages with Mike Watt, Toys That Kill, Torche, and Melt-Banana.
