The Nerve Agents were a hardcore punk band formed by Andy Outbreak and Eric Ozenne (ex-Redemption 87). Their angry brand of music juxtaposed yelled, sometimes ranting vocals with distorted and often chorus laden chords, complex bass lines and fast-paced drumming. Some singing is present in their music, though it mostly takes the form of drawn-out yells with little or no consideration of pitch. Their style is reminiscent of bands like T.S.O.L. or The Dead Kennedys.
