Establishing themselves as one hell of a rockin live act, Nonpoint return with their 3rd release, “]Recoil”]. Already an incredibly powerful live act to say the least, these Florida natives are hell bent on tearing up radio air waves with their brand of heavy laden melodic rock.

“]Recoil”] easily captures the heavier edge sound that Nonpoint has always been know for as a touring act which is a huge bonus. Vocalists Elias Soriano has one potent of a voice and now has proven beyond a doubt that he can stand up to the best of em. “]Recoil”] surprisingly is far more melodic then past efforts from these Ft. Lauderdale natives showing maturity as well as commitment. Leaning further from the nu-metal ties that have kept them thrown into this genera Nonpoint have attempted to make a straight forward rock record and at times works pretty damn well. Tracks like “]The Same”], “]The Truth”], “]Rabia”] and “]Done it Anyway”] stand out as very solid songs that will surly please Nonpoint fans aching for a heavier record. Although like most releases these days there are plenty of filler tracks that take away the momentum that “]Recoil”] builds from the first cuts. Another big downfall is the weak choice of including the classic 80’s Phil Collins hit “]In the Air Tonight”] which seems so meaningless to be included.

With 13 tracks in all, “]Recoil”] tends to drag on a bit with song after song becoming a little redundant but in the end Nonpoint have released an above average album worthy of giving it a good listen.
