NODES OF RANVIER
THE YEARS TO COME
Sioux Falls, South Dakota quintet Nodes of Ranvier return with a 12-track release that falls in line with much of the contemporary metalcore on the scene today. Packing a wallop laden with melody and bruising rhythms alike, “The Dawning Age” is a track that old school thrashers and new fans can equally enjoy, while the title track is armed with a demonic vocal style that sounds like the merger of E-Town Concrete and older Avenged Sevenfold and rocks out with unabashed intensity. Leaning towards the more commercial side of heavy music, THE YEARS TO COME is a great addition to those who are digging their older brother’s thrash albums in addition to the current crop of heavy bands fortified with melodic musings and anthemic choruses.
