Nodes of Ranvier: The Years to ComeThe Years to Come (2005)

Amongst the influx of newly bred “American metal” (okay, metalcore) acts, Nodes of Ranvier fall in line with the pack with an album that gives little in terms of excitement or surprises. The Years to Come certainly isn’t the worst to come from the seemingly overcrowded genre, but it falls forgettably by the wayside. The influences are fairly easy to pick out, and the standard mixing of melody into the throaty screams is fulfilled, but neither part seems terribly memorable or refreshing. Unfortunately, Nick Murphy’s screams are far too reminiscent of those from Atreyu, which can never be good; and although his sung vocals are decent enough, the melodies are far too generic.
