“Naildriver then followed with their scathing brand of unrelenting power metal, mixing songs from their "White Devil Chronicles, Vol. I" EP, newer originals and select metal covers. Furiously backed by guitarists Scott Botteicher and Todd Dale, bassist Scott Bush and drummer Kevin Siegel; frontman Matt Watson unleashed his Doberman snarl on the set opener “Enemy,” “Hypocrite’s Anthem,” “Executioner,” “Phoenix” and “Seal the Exits” off the EP, plus new numbers such as the group’s title “Naildriver,” “Ghost of Me” and more. Naildriver also incorporated their ferocious edge into such numbers as Clutch’s “50,000 Unstoppable Watts” into Anthrax’s “Only,” Metallica’s “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and “Wasting My Hate,” Black Label Society’s “Suicide Messiah,” Iron Maiden’s “The Trooper” and more. If you missed this blistering metal double-bill, both bands return to McGarvey’s on September 6th.”
"Pummeling uber metal at its most percussive still a better listen than ANY rap song posted here! I sense Muppet vocals and am not disappointed although is more Pantera than Sweetums. The snarling singer stays atop a protean set of rapid riffing and thunderous drumming. Profanity and screams are part of the accusatory tone of craziness here. In what could be called a Bridge, the drumming really gets your blood pressure to dangerous levels. This song actually hits on all cylinders what it sets out to do so high praise is DUE." - Anonymous Crowd Review of the Naildriver song "Hypocrite's Anthem"
“NAILDRIVER – THE WHITE DEVIL CHRONICLES VOLUME 1 (no label) "Altoona’s Naildriver doesn’t mince words or riffs on their first official EP offering, "The White Devil Chronicles Volume 1", as they loudly and proudly put pedal to the metal. Naildriver brings brute-force, modern thrash metal over the disc’s five tracks; paced by Kevin Siegel’s precision rapid fire drum thunder and Scott Bush’s quaking low-end bass rumble, both laying the foundation for the snarling twin-edged guitar attack of lead axe Scott Botteicher and rhythm guitarist Todd Dale. These backdrops serve as the launching pad for the Phil Anselmo-informed Doberman snarl of lead throat man Matt Watson.... Naildriver’s agitated performances attack from start to end. The guitars snarl, and Botteicher’s scorching guitar leads slice with surgical precision. Watson rages with savage abandon; his rapid fire bark shows no mercy...The "White Devil Chronicles Volume 1" offers power metal that connects with the ja”
"I enjoyed listening to the song with a beat so incredible. As soon as the song started I realize that this is a song that I can jam out to. The temple was just my pace for the moment.and the lyrics was so realistic and relatable. A song like this would most definitely go on my favorites playlist and stay on my favorites playlist." - Anonymous Crowd Review of the Naildriver song "Seal The Exits"
"A nice dramatic intro with some nicely paced piano.The lead vocalist sings with a a pleasant tone.The song appears to have an almost jazz tune.Then the track becomes a surprise! It turns into a hard hitting rock and roll song with everything going into high speed rapid guitar and drum beats! The singer takes the spotlight and has a powerful growl tone to his voice.This track is interesting to listen to because of it's suprise vibe.I think people will like it!" - Anonymous review of the Naildriver song "Phoenix"
"Naildriver then capped the night with a blistering set of power metal, as they showcased tracks from their newly-released EP plus select covers. Singer Matt Watson, guitarists Scott Botteicher and Todd Dale, bassist Scott Bush and drummer Kevin Siegel threw caution to the wind as they hammered forth such original assaults as “Enemy,” “Hypocrite Anthem,” “Phoenix,” “We the People” and more. They also fired off explosive renditions of several Pantera numbers, Black Label Society’s “Suicide Messiah” and Iron Maiden’s “The Trooper.” This show was well attended, hopefully boding well for RockSpot 814 as they strive to regenerate enthusiasm for this area’s live band scene."
