The Dirty Nil – Higher Power [Review]

The wait is over for the long awaited debut album by Hamilton’s The Dirty Nil.
Releasing some handful of 7” singles, mixtapes, EPs, and limited edition lathe cut records.
It is finally time they should conquer the rest of Canada and beyond.
While I am a little bummed out that Cinnamon didn’t make it on the album.
At least Wrestle Yü To Hüsker Dü which was from their EP Smite gets the album treatment.
Higher Power is jam pack of high voltage rock & roll, grunge alternative music!
Very intense and energizing album that it will make you love rock music all over again!
Best tracks:

  • No Weaknesses
  • Zombie Eyed
  • Wrestle Yü To Hüsker Dü
  • Friends in the Sky
  • Bury Me At The Rodeo

I’d give Higher Power:
/10 Camera flashes.

    Higher Power is mentioned in the official video for No Weaknesses.

    I am super pumped for this album! It has been getting great reviews, and the music videos are great thus far. I’m so glad they are bringing Zombie Eyed back.

    Higher Power is mentioned in the official video for No Weaknesses.

    Love these guys and still feel super lucky to have seen them in smaller venues like Pressed. I think those days will soon be over as their momentum keeps growing.

    No Weaknesses makes reference to a Higher Power!

    I love that Zombie Eyed is on the album too, after hearing it on a split they did a few years ago with Northern Primitive (who has Attack In Black’s drummer!).
