That ominous rumbling you heard was not a deception perpetrated by your ears, but rather a warning of a nefarious force emerging from the streets of Birmingham, Alabama. That force is thrash/crossover act Kamikaze Zombie and "Night of the Nuberus" is now upon us.
Released in September 2017, the time has arrive for the rest of the world to heed the warning and prepare for an old school crossover attack that combines black metal melodies, doom/sludge/death metal breakdowns, and in-your-face punk/thrash aggression with lyrical content inspired by horror films. And let's not forget about the serial-killer themed stage shows!

The music of Night of the Nuberus was written by Clint Spain and Steve Cater, the former also penning the lyrics. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Matthew Washburn (Mastodon) at LedBelly Sound Studio. Artwork and layout come courtesy of Shawn Knight.
Vocalist/Guitarist Clint Spain had this to say about the band's macabre creation: "'Night of the Nuberus' is our first major release. We went for a horror movie vibe in writing and recording the album, like a love letter to old slasher movies and horror punk bands. But my love for the New Orleans scene, black metal and the Melvins definitely bleeds through."
