Nothing Left for Tomorrow
Released: 2010, Self Released
Reviewer: Aaron Yurkiewicz
Nothing Left for Tomorrow is a female fronted Canadian 5-piece that’s been around since 2002. Though the band released an EP a few years back, NIGHTBREED is the band’s first full length offering, and is 40-minutes of thrash inspired goodness.
Don’t let the female vocalist thing throw you, Nightwish this ain’t. Though it probably helps attract attention to the band, vocalist Yasmina can certainly hold her own in the growls and bark department. She mixes up her performance with a welcomed blend of death scowls and atonal clean harmonies. It’s a pretty unique delivery and works well in the context of the music.
The tunes themselves are strong, filled with plenty of riffs and runs that after a few listens will stick in your head. Musically, the band keeps the performances relatively straight forward and no-frills, but there’s enough going on to keep you engaged throughout the disc. The production and mix are impressive, and the CD packaging is slick and professional.
You get a sense that Nothing Left for Tomorrow really believe in their craft, and that conviction comes through in the songs. While the songs bear a familiar formula, they’re fresh enough to stand out and have their own identity. NIGHTBREED is a promising effort from a band that’s been around the block. Check out Nothing Left for Tomorrow’s website for more information on NIGHTBREED.
