END OF TRUST
Cleveland's NDE are no strangers to the scene, being around since the mid '90s, yet this is the band's national debut. The blend of electronic metal a la Prong mixes well with NDE's potent hardcore attack, evoking at times reminders of Kilgore and Earth Crisis, both bands that blurred the edges between hardcore and metal well. In fact, the 12 tracks that comprise END OF TRUST chug like Machine Head meets Biohazard, complete with crunchy guitars and bombastic drums. Spirited and heavy as hell, NDE shows that its brand of metal is ready for the major leagues, tapping into the angst that so many before them have displayed.
