NODES OF RANVIER
DEFINED BY STRUGGLE
VICTORY

The musical pride of South Dakota Nodes of Ranvier have streamlined their aggression on the 11-track DEFINED BY STRUGGLE to a point where they no longer shine as bright as once before. While the outfit's overall heaviness factor sees a sharp rise, with tracks like "Seargant Sorrow" and "Endless Faith" punching holes in your speakers without remorse, the monotony of the samey yet utterly face-ripping metalcore on tracks like "Infidelity" and the title cut gives off the dreaded been-there, done-that vibe currently plaguing a good number of bands in the genre, making this listening experience rather pedestrian for those solely not obsessed with pit dance moves.
