Nitrous
Biography
Thrash metal project Nitrous masterminded by drag racing champion Lauri Kuriks effectively combines fast, powerful and deafening machines as subject matter with fast, powerful and deafening music.

Estonia's – and possibly the world's – only drag race thrash metal band Nitrous derives its name from the gas called nitrous oxide, used in car racing in order to increase engine power by injecting it into the intake manifold. Like the gas that creates bursts of considerably more explosive environment, the band Nitrous with its aggressive, Slayeresque music injects the audiences with spontaneous spurts of energy guaranteed to induce displays of breakneck moshing. The monstrous quartet initiated in 2004 by the drag-racing champion Lauri Kuriks (guitar) draws its lyrical themes from the world of high-powered engines only, which titles like "Torque Monster", "Fuel System Alert" and "Pro Mod Action" plainly hint at.

"Torque Monster", the 2006 debut album by Nitrous, while strongly smelling of gasoline and nitrous oxide, delivers wild rhytms, vicious soloing, relentless bass onslaughts, breathtaking drum bombardments and mercilessly raw vocals utilised as an additional rhytm instrument.

Nitous's newest, sophomore album "Outlaw Racer", released November 25th, 2008 by Nailboard Records, presents a new level in the band's development. Produced by Nitrous, recorded and engineered by Kaur Faltis (IrwinArt), mixed by Toomas Paidra (Zorg Studios) and mastered by Colin Davis (Imperial Mastering), "Outlaw Racer" encompasses a whole new level of writing and composition, while maintaining the familiar rugged feel of classic UG thrash.

Take a hit of Nitrous, go outlaw now!
