The Skinny: Detroit, MI metal trio Nurse Ratched is a small band with a monster sound. Citing a wide range of influences from Pig Destroyer, Nasum and High On Fire to Mastodon, Cattle Decapitation and Napalm Death, this is one group that is not messing around. Sonically they take elements of grind, thrash, doom and death metal and layer on top their own experimentation to create a maddening cacophony of awesome.

The band is currently signed to Saw Her Ghost Records and as they put it: “there is no rhyme or reason to the methods of the Nurse. The music just happens.” Listen to the infectious tunes if you dare, and start with this free, exclusive copy of the song “Nausome.”
