Chicago is a violent place – violence that is both immediate and implied – and Blystex are products of that violence. Nasty Licks is not a cute recording; it’s not playful or fun. Nasty Licks is six stompers of primal proto-hardcore beats behind guitars that sound like a bite to the windpipe. The lyrics paint Chicago as a jungle and cast scenes about predators and prey.

To be young in Chicago is be watched and scrutinized, but to be young, a woman, and an immigrant is to be more than watched, it’s to be hunted – to be stalked by beasts hiding at the end of the block. These are not revolution songs; these are songs of affirmation and declarations of resilience while fighting through the brush because while Blystex declare "I am not an animal!” they are hunted just the same.
