Nailpoint

Recommended Posts

Haha... I had an opportunity to hear this thing the other day and I passed because I figured I knew exactly what they'd sound like (average dime-a-dozen nu-metal). And guess what... they sound exactly like how I pictured they would! :lol:

 

Big pass for me.

Mate, Nickelback haven't made a nu-metal sounding album since that 'The state' atrocity. Since then there's been nothing slow-paced (except the ballads) and nu-metal about their albums at all. They're just a hard rock band - like them or not. And yes, I like hard rock bands.

 

These guys sound nothing like Nickelback, in my opinion. Slow, dreary nu-metal/rock.

 

If you can honestly tell me you'd bat an eyelid over a band like this if they weren't Christian I'll email you my balls to hang on your Christmas tree. :)

Nickelback, Hinder, TOAD, Rev Theory, are all pretty much the same :).... even the best song on Faber Drive sounds like Nickelback.

 

I wrote this post whilst listening to the first song on their myspace... which was pretty damn cool. The second song i listened to sucked!

The 3rd was pretty decent....

 

So would i buy this? Only if i saw it cheap at this point... but there are people here whod be interested in it... hence the post...

I agree all those bands you mentioned are similar in style - and all are modern melodic rock/hard rock bands. I definitely wouldn't put these Nailpoint guys anywhere near that category. Even in that list, Rev Theory borders very close to nu-metal at times. Aside from the killer first track.

 

No issue with you posting this at all, mate. Just giving my opinion which is sadly something I do often. ;)

 

FYI, if you really do dig these guys try stuff like:

 

Trustgame

Evans Blue

Crossfade

Nonpoint

Everything At Once

 

... and literally 99% of the bands at that blog link I think I gave you once - Rest In Peace I think it's called.

I'll have to pass. I like my Christmas tree ornaments to be big enough for people to actually see them.

... instead of so big they block all doorways and don't allow anyone to enter the room? I see your logic, mate. No worries. Balls are staying attached anyway... 'cause no one really likes Nailpoint. :D

Well, Geoff, consider yourself wrong (something you should be used to by now), because I finally got around to listening to the songs on Nailpoint's MySpace page and I really liked 'em. Not just kind of liked them--really liked them. Liked them a lot. And them being Christian has nothing to do with it (though in my case, it's a plus, obviously). So, do you need my address to mail your balls to? I figure once I have them, I'll sell them on eBay as a rarity--The World's Smallest Testicles!--and use the money to buy a copy of Nailpoint's CD.

I honestly don't believe you for a second, mate. A man of your sometimes good taste would not sink this low, even for the sake of a few references to God. ;)

Honestly, buddy, all jokes aside, I really do like what I'm hearing with this band. Reminds me quite a bit of Decyfer Down, which, if you recall, I ranted & raved about when it came out. So, you can keep your testicles (they're all covered with pug-spit anyway) but I will still be buying a copy of Nailpoint's album.

Yeah, you do like some of that kind of stuff, hey (poor bastard ;) )? Still, I forecast it will appear in one of your sale lists for $2 at the start of next year. :lol:

 

Seriously, though, mate, if you honestly like these guys go through that list I think I typed up here (I think). There are a ridiculous amount of bands that sound just like these clowns. I mean guys.

Where can I buy the Nailpoint CD? I have had trouble locating it tonight, except for mp3s.

I recently got my copy off eBay, but if you go to www.nailpointmusic.com and make your way to the merchandise section, you can buy it for $10. Hope that helps.

While I prefer Static Cycle, this sounds promising.

The title cut is excellent. Not a whole lot more impressed me, however. I prefer Decyfer Down's latest over this one.

Sadly I must agree with Geoff. Total sludge rock to these ears. Just kinda droning on and on. Not a single track on their myspace impressed me at all.

Several months later, and my thoughts have not changed. One excellent song and not much else to speak of.

    • Pulling out is like like signing a genocide order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • It's a blatant ripoff of Roger Dean and his work for Yes and Asia like "Union" and "The Ladder". 
    • Such a random album cover and band logo... looks more like Saga... or something like that..
    • I did see these when I was googling (and in turn ogling) her the other night. Very delicious. 
    • I was actually spinning it on Thursday/Friday too and stand by my comments. Solid album, but easily the weakest of their last three. Really missing some knock-out blows. But solid. 
    • Got my advance digital copy of the Donnie album and it is defo not an EZN album by any means, with that above song being the only one that really captures that classic sound. Much like most of his releases, this is a more laid back affair for the most part but does have some great songs on it. As expected, a much better album than the EZN one, but would certainly not appeal to everyone. Unsurprisingly the Beatles and Cheap Trick influences are on show here as well.   If you are familiar with the rest of his solo career, then that is pretty much what is on offer here as well.
    • also pulling out of Paris agreement is grossly negligent imo and those tax cuts are gonna hurt the US in the long run....driving up debt will only lead to austerity measures in years to come. Trump won't mind tho cos he's saving millions as a result of his tax cuts lol. 
    • it's not booming in the rest of the world....mainly affected by his ludicrous trade war.
