Nux Vomica are calling it quits.


After three full-lengths, three EPs, and three splits, Nux Vomica, one of the raddest crusty death metal bands to ever rampage across the US, is calling it quits.

At right around noon today (Thursday, 5/18), the band posted the image above to Facebook with the following caption:

Well folks, it’s been real. Our last attempt at resurrecting the old fux dramica didn’t go so well, and we’ve decided to call it a day once and for all. Thank you SO FUCKING MUCH to everyone who has supported us over the years. We can’t express how much this project meant to us, and how rewarding it was to know that so many people appreciated it. Thank you.

We are offloading all of our remaining merch, which is quite a bit. 50% or more of the profits are going to be donated to Planned Parenthood, an organization that is under threat from the current establishment, that we feel is vital to our communities. We are also releasing the remaining copies of our self titled LP that has been sold out until now. Have at it.

Seriously, we fucking love you all.

Yikes, sounds like there was some bad blood in the Nux Vomica camp. I hope calling it quits helps all parties involved find some peace and relief, but it will be a shame to see them go. Their last record, the self-titled Nux Vomica was a hell of a barn-burner, one that blended a slipshod punk ferocity with killer melodeath riffs to forge an irresistible three-track banger. So impressed was I with this record that I even praised Danny, Tim, and Just Dave’s vocals on “Choked at the Roots” when I wrote a defense of vocals in metal in the early days of the blog. Nux Vomica rips, y’all.

If you want to pay a fond farewell to the band and/or support their charity of choice, make sure you swing by Bandcamp. They still have quite a bit of merch to offload.

Adios, Nux Vomica.

    This is a bummer. I got the email last night saying they had a bunch of merch up on BC and I thought maybe they were clearing out for a new album cycle.

      Same here. Their self-titled album is the shit right there. Was actually hoping to read about new music by them when I saw the bc email, damn.

        I’m sorry to be a downer.

          Thank you for sharing anyway. I’m not on the Facebooks, so I wouldn’t have heard about this sad news today without you.

    First heard these guys on a Relapse sampler put out a few years ago, around the time their self-titled was released. Killer stuff. Shame.

    Man, outside of the TDT post, a lot of bummer news today.

  • Waynecro

    This sux.

  • NDG

    First time I’ve heard these guys. Shitty news they are splitting.

  • xengineofdeathx

    Ahh man that sucks. Good band, a friend of mine used to date the singer.

    Hey guys, just to clear up something, there was definitely NO bad blood whatsoever. Just our attempts to practice on any sort of regular schedule were pretty much laughably impossible. We all get along great and are all friends.
    The response to us breaking up has been overwhelming, thanks everyone!!
    And most of us are still playing music btw…
