Interview with TG of Nihil Verum Nisi Mors (NVNM)

One of my favorite parts of the metal scene is how the passion of genuine diehards has led to various splintered microlabels across the world (according to the venerable metal-archives, there are tens of thousands of the things).

A lot of those labels put out a single release or two and crumple under the responsibility or financial commitment, but sometimes a collective survives to destroy the world under the weight of the riffs that they put out.

NVNM belongs to a special category of label which serves solely to exist as a way for co-founders and masterminds TG and Joe Aversario to unleash their morbid creations upon the world; they don’t take submissions (as I found out when I tried to get them to put out material from one of my bands some months ago), don’t search for new bands to release on the label, self-record their music, self-produce their music, and dub most of their releases themselves- essentially, NVNM is the pure, concentrated essence of DIY; given that prior to forming the collective TG and Joe played together in a deathgrind band, this is somewhat unsurprising.
