Nothing Left for Tomorrow: Nightbreed

Death/Thrash Metal
2.5/5.0

Nothing Left for Tomorrow's Nightbreed might be my easiest review in recent months. Go back to the drawing board. Quit will you're ahead. Isn't some other band doing this same thing? Can't you stop my CD player from puking on the floor?

Canada's Nothing Left for Tomorrow wants to be called thrash, even death, metal, but Nightbreed is average stuff, mundane at the very least. As much as I dismiss the death/growl vocals, I do know when they are done well. They're not done well here. Honestly, if Yasmina and NLFT would abandon the cheesy and populist death vocals, Nightbreed would be an entirely different album, and much better. The band has some real skill, and some real talent, for melodic thrash metal as on title cut or Broken. Ultimately, NLFT is either capitulating to current times or simply embellishing their music with modern metal tones for commercial recognition. Doesn't anybody get this? Obviously not.

Give them kudos for effort. Nothing Left for Tomorrow is truly trying to succeed in the modern metal atmosphere. Even though they will probably be picked up by a label, their style merely puts them in the same swirling barrel of modern metal confusion found most everywhere. Certainly, that is not enough for me and, hopefully, not enough for Dangerdog readers.
