Ever since I heard Slayer's 'Hell Awaits' I was hooked. But when I found out that drummer Dave Lombardo left. I was really mad, but at the same time eager to listen to his new project. Grip Inc.'s 'Nemesis' is by far their strongest release of their career. Grip Inc. blends tradition thrash, with modern death and the combination is just suberb. Gus Chamber's vocals have true feeling in them, and you can feel that through out the album. "War Between One" is the best track on the record. The lyrics rock, the vocals are perfect, the guitar and bass just hit hard, and ya' know the drums are getting their use. The seond best song on the album is "Rusty Nail", it kind of reminds me of old school Slayer, but just a little bit harder. Another standout track is "Myth Or Man". It is hard to find a song like that, with so much emotion on most thrash releases. To sum it all up, Grip Inc. is one of the best bands out there. They have yet to release a bad album, so don't waste any time. Pick this one up right away...

This CD just flat out slays, as did Grip Inc.'s first album, "Power of Inner Strength". However, the band does not seem comfortable with cranking out a duplicate album. There is a great deal of progression forward on this album.
There is an increase in the amount of instrumentals used on this album. There are several stretches where the band goes several minutes and just lets their instruments do the talking.
When Gus Chambers does talk, you'd better listen. The vocals on this album are intense, meaningful, and thought provoking.
The guitar work by Waldemar Sorchyta is unmatched. As one could expect, the drumming of Dave Lombardo is second to none.
A couple of stand-out tracks on this album include the blistering "War Between One" and the furious "Myth or Man".
This is not to say the other tracks aren't as good. Every single one is amazing in its own right.
This album flows very well and should be a part of anyone's collection., not just the metalhead. All I can say is "When's the next album coming out?" and "When are they touring next?"

The intro to Liar starts out similar but not like the song Ostracized did on the album Power of Inner Strength, and then it hits you like a bottle upside your head-hard. Rythmic pounding with guitar ripping waves of metal overpower Your senses like a welcomed wall of sound (metal shock is revealed), and there is still the rest of the album. I had a friend tell me to check these guys out, and now I have all three GRIP INC albums to date! IT IS NOT LIKE ANY SLAYER ALBUM, but I did like some of their music. This band has a different style entirely!
Lombardo and his crew are hopefully going to be around for a while, but with all the projects Lombardo has delved himself into.....who knows!

This is Grip's second (and best) album. It showed that Dave Lombardo could keep a steady band after slayer. This album is quite diffrent to Slayer. People always compare Grip to Slayer, but you can't. They diffrent syles of music. Nemesis has some of the most original beats and could easily be copared to bands like Meshuggah. This is probably dave's best drumwork since South of Heaven with Slayer.

I initially picked up the promo for this album just because of the cover art. When I realized that Dave Lombardo (drummer for Slayer) had organized the band, I decided I had buy it. Litte did I realize that I was in for such a great treat. I played the album again and again trying to find, as always, my favorite tracks. No Luck. They were all awesome. I suppose I've now labelled my favorite tracks as # 1 and #s 6-11. Yes, the last five are a beautiful blend of hard core guitars, radically flawless drumning and dissonent keyboards. A must-buy for any true hard-core music lover.

Good nontheless.
Very similar to Slayer actually in some respects, I don't know why anyone would say this is not. Dave Lombardo does a great job on drums (as usual), the guitarist is good too, and the singer's not bad either.
Actually, Gus Chambers sounds a lot like Tom Araya on some tracks.
I was lucky enough to find this CD at a second hand place. I only listened to two of the songs on the album before buying it, I figured Lombardo's drumming alone would make this a great album.
Worth a listen. Fav. song on the album: Pathetic Liar

Ah yes,its time once again for the arrival of another Grip Inc. album.Many viewed the first album as sort of a novelty(at least until they actually heard it) Nemesis proves that this band aint gonna stop.Gus Chambers' awesome vocals can be soothing and also deadly.Waldermar's awesome guitar work and production makes this album sound so smooth.And of course drum-god Dave Lombardo pounds his skins oh so ellagantly.Together this is one lethal combination.Dont listen to this band if ya got heart problems or are pregnant.

Nemesis sees Grip Inc. cranking up the thrash element a bit on this release in comparison to their 1995 debut Power of Inner Strength.

While stylistically, Nemesis doesn't make much of a departure overall from their sound they had already established on the debut.

There is some small advancement of their sound on this release, but nothing to the level that their next 2 releases Solidify & Incorporated would display.

But like I had already mentioned, there is much more of a true thrash element permeating throughout this release in comparison to Power of Inner Strength.

Dave Lombardo still shows that he's the greatest metal drummer to ever walk the earth. The guitar work and vocals are just as great as well.

There might not be quite as much variety on this 2nd effort as on their debut, but overall, this album makes a great companion piece to their debut release.

Fans of smart and well written/performed metal would do wise to pick up their entire catalog.

This is some of the most overlooked metal that has been released up to this point. Unfortunately, Grip Inc constantly got labled as just a Slayer ripoff, but in most respects, Grip Inc is a totally different band and in a lot of areas such as songwriting/arrangements etc. is a stronger band than Slayer anyway.

But to me, comparing Grip Inc to Slayer is like comparing apples to oranges.
