Consider me a new fan of this band. Nails Hide Metal make GREAT music. - Middle Tennessee Music

The fuzzed-out guitar work, the powerful percussion, and those joyous vocals all work in unison to deliver something so positively tender at times. Infinitely catchy the songs linger in the mind courtesy of Nails Hide Metal’s keen ear for melody. Lyrics feel akin to poetry as their abstractions have an emotional quality to them, as they conjure up moods as much as they do mere moments. - Skope Magazine

For having been created by only two musicians, the Breach album from Nails Hide Metal contains a surprisingly large amount of variety in the styles of Rock and Roll that make up the eight tracks on the album. Together, the duo creates more than just your usual guitar-and-drums music that you would usually associate with a two-person band. Their music is so much more than that. – The Rock and Roll Report
