Riff Police! Pull Over! #125: Nicolas Cage Fighter Vs Deez Nuts!

When it comes to Deez Nuts it seems that JJ Peters had a real fire for Hardcore coming from being the drummer in I Killed The Prom Queen but the key was keeping it heavy. He used more abrasive guitar tones and a more confrontational approach to his lyrics to get things off his chest and that’s what made the first few albums the band created stand out above the pack. Part party hardcore, part spleen vent, all good fun. Their debut album was recorded by Roman Koester of The Red Shore at Complex Studios in August 2008 with JJ Peters performing drums, guitars bass and lead vocals with Louie Knuxx, Ahren Stringer and Joel Birch of The Amity Affliction and Jamie Hope of The Red Shore each laying down some guest vocal parts. The big single was “I Hustle Everyday” which really put the band on the map, especially in Germany…

…fast forward five years and in 2013 Nicolas Cage Fighter recorded their EP “3350” at the very same Complex Studios, also with Roman Koester  (The Red Shore, Thy Art Is Murder, Boris The Blade). Formed two years earlier in 2011 in Ballarat, Australia and touring heavily, they shared stages with everyone from Aversions Crown to Thy Art Is Murder before going on hiatus; they’re set to return with “Cast You Out” in the final quarter of 2020 having released single “Black Jackal” in September. It is however “Ghostfist” from that 2013 EP that raises an eyebrow as well as a shotglass; it shares a riff with “Your Mother Should Have Swallowed You” from the aforementioned “Stay True“…
