Exclusive Album Premiere: NK — Nothing To Be Gained Here
Today, RevolverMag.com presents the exclusive premiere of Nothing To Be Gained Here, the debut album by NK, a new featuring members of Envy On The Coast and The Dillinger Escape Plan. The album will be released May 21 by Triple Crown Records.
Nothing To Be Gained Here's peaks and valleys are strung together by monstrous rhythm section comprised of Michael Sadis on bass and Billy Rymer on drums (Dillinger Escape Plan), plus Ryan Hunter's (Envy on the Coast) visceral and uninhibited lyrics and vocal style.
On "Confessional," "Shoulder Gorilla," "Kings" and "Set a Fire," the band show their affinity for heavy music, with Rymer adding his signature drumming style. Abrasive guitars and fuzzed-out bass tones match Rymer's style of playing, while Hunter's vocals are a fusion of rhythmic aggression and melody. On "Vacation Days" and "Memo," the band turn down the gain and embraces a warmer, down-tempo, soulful side. With Mike Sapone (Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, O'Brother) and Hunter taking on production duties, NTBGH is a rhythmic, lyrically dense and dynamic debut album.
