You might know Leon Del Muerte as the former or current guitarist or bassist of bands like Murder Construct, Exhumed, Phobia, Intronaut, Nausea, and Impaled. Now as an addition to Del Muerte's incredible metal resume, he's joined Nails as the band's second guitarist!
Del Muerte has been Nails's second live guitarist since 2016, and has now officially joined the group as a member. The announcement also makes it known that guitarist Andy Saba is officially out of the group, and has been since December 2015.
"Nails would like to welcome the addition of second guitarist, Leon Del Muerte. You may recognize Leon from recent Nails shows since we started touring on 'You Will Never Be One Of Us' or from playing with such bands as Terrorizer L.A., Nausea, Intronaut, Phobia, Murder Construct etc. He's the fucking man and any time you're at a Nails gig, you'll be watching him grind your face off with us.
"On that note, we would like to acknowledge the departure of Andy Saba. He left the band (on his terms) December 2015. Saba's creative contribution to Nails and skill as a guitarist will never be understated. He co-wrote the 'Abandon All Life' LP as well as the '2-song Flexi' and was a great addition to the band during his tenure. Saba left his mark on Nails, on our fans, and his input to the band is immeasurable. Nails would like to extend much peace, love, respect, and appreciation to Andy Saba."
Now we wait for the next Nails album, which is sure to be that much more violent with Del Muerte's input.
