Review: Nations Afire – The Ghosts We Will Become

Rated:

3/5

Nations Afire are a band composed of former veterans of Rise Against and Death by Stereo, as well as current members of Ignite; this, their debut, sees the band trying to take their hardcore roots and translate them into the modern-rock arena—a tricky proposition that Rise Against pulled off. Nations Afire sound best when they play to their strengths on driving post-hardcore anthems like “I Am An Army” as opposed to the forced feel of radio-ready rockers like “The Concussionist.” Still, there’s a lot of potential here as long as the group doesn’t let their goals get in the way of the music.
