In a genre full of bands that can all seemingly follow the same standard song writing formulas, Nodes Of Ranvier have risen up creating their own niche in the metal/hardcore scene. Unique and original song arrangements that vary from breakdowns of epic proportions overlaid with harsh, deep vocals to hand clapping choruses with catchy melodies have caused the press to praise their "Self-Titled" album (2003) saying it was "one of the top ten albums of the year, if not of all time". Based out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Nodes Of Ranvier come from a place with a struggling local scene which has only heightened their own creativity and caused them to hit the road and work hard for every ounce of their success. Their two full-length albums on Facedown Records "Lost Senses, More Innocence" and "Nodes Of Ranvier" have sold like crazy and continue to climb as they play with bands such as Bleeding Through, Everytime I Die, Bury Your Dead, Caliban, Comeback Kid, Norma Jean, Misery Signals, Extol and more across the US! Nodes Of Ranvier's new album "The Year's To Come" was released September 13th 2005 and promises to deliver one of the best albums that will come out this year. Catch them on the road all year long!
