Biography

Nervecell emerged early in the year 2000 in the commercial city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Surrounded by a music scene that is dominated completely by the mainstream musical hype, Nervecell independently worked their way up and have undoubtedly proven to be the most potential metal outfit in the Middle East to date, delivering a powerful unique mixture of death metal & thrash metal.

After a series of lineup changes within the band it was only until 2003 that Nervecell decided to record the first demo entitled “Vastlands of Abomination”. Following the success of the demo the band hit the studio to record their debut EP “Human Chaos” in the summer of 2004. This release grabbed a lot of attention from both the underground local scene and around the globe. Being aired on local station Dubai Radio One’s weekly metal show Heavy Metal Thunder and various international radio stations as UK’s Total Rock and Germany’s The Metal Observer Radio, ranking their Top 20 charts. “Human Chaos” also received many positive reviews from various webzines & magazines in Germany, Netherlands, Greece, Italy, Morocco, USA, Canada and Britain’s metal bible Metal Hammer. The success of “Human Chaos” led Nervecell the opportunity to perform at the annual Dubai Desert Rock Festival in 2005 opening for legendary SEPULTURA and the mighty MACHINE HEAD. In 2006, London based drummer Gavin Ward (ex-POWER QUEST) joined Nervecell and toured with the band for a good year and a half.

    Pretty damn solid Death Metal! Thrashy parts nicely woven into it. Need to see them live!

    Psychogenocide is pretty fucking brilliant. These guys really mix technicality, brutality and energetic thrash influence really well. Karl's guest vocals on "Shunq" are also fantastic.
