In A Nutshell are a band from France that plays a mixture of grunge and alternative metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Quandary".
A very dark and distorted sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound and after awhile the music starts getting more heavy and the songs are very heavily rooted in the 90's era and also brings in a great amount of melody along with a more metal approach to alternative and grunge.
Vocals when they are added the music enhance the grunge elements of the bands musical style and at times clean playing and acoustic guitars can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a power ballad towards the end and when leads are added into the music they are very melodic sounding guitar solos and all of the tracks sound like they could of easily been recorded and released during the 90's while one of the later tracks brings in a touch of 70's psychedelic rock.
In A Nutshell plays a very retro sounding mixture of grunge and alternative metal on this recording and they have a vintage 90's sound to them, the production sound s very old school yet professional at the same time while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion In A Nutshell are a very great sounding mixture of grunge and alternative metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Again & Again" "Can't Wait" "I Don't Care" and "Today". 8 out of 10.
