NOMVDIC – “Euphoria”
CD | DIGITAL | LP
Progressive Metal from US
Nomadic is exactly the type of band you’d expect to emerge from the rich musical heritage of Tampa, Florida—a sonic breeding ground whose iconic contributions to heavy metal, such as Death and Obituary, are heard far and wide.
Since 2016, the band has paired the ambience and gloom of today’s premier black/death metal with catchy metalcore essentials to create a signature style that can’t be tied down to genres. It’s no surprise that Nomadic’s recent string of singles have earned acclaim from Spotify’s New Metal Tracks and New Blood playlists and Metal Hammer Magazine, among other tastemakers who have been quick to recognize the young band’s limitless potential.
On the heels of an ambitious touring cycle with popular metal mainstays like The Faceless and Drowning Pool, Nomadic’s new album “Euphoria” is an LP that showcases their dynamic, emotional transition from NWOAHM-style riffage to a more nuanced, thematically-developed sound. If this growth is any indication of the band’s trajectory, Nomadic’s ominous aura is offset only by their bright, promising future in modern metal.
“Euphoria” engages the listener with a dissection of the human psyche. A concept album, it hits hard before lulling the listener into an ethereal dreamscape, leading up to an emphatic climax. With several massively-memorable moments, it marries the beautiful chaos of Deafheaven with the devastation and relentlessness of Despised Icon. A rewarding experience from front-to-back, the first-week Billboard numbers for “Euphoria” were impressive, hitting #15 for Top New Artist and #12 for Hard Music, and only 3 spots off of Billboard’s prestigious Top 100. Nomadic’s “Euphoria” is available wherever you stream as of July 10th.
