Canada's NOMAD Shares Drum & Vocal Playthrough "Rise in the Fall"

Unleashing their debut album "The Mountain" this past March, Canada’s Nomad, hailing from the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, offer up a dynamic, progressive death metal. Having three vocalists creates a unique sound that is powerful, complex, and full-bodied. They have solidified their name in the local scene with festival appearances and supporting big-name acts and their debut album “The Mountain” has been ear worming its way to metal fans around the world.

Today, drummer Bretton Melanson shares his drum and vocal playthrough for the track "Rise in the Fall" which can be seen above.

"The title for this track came first, and I thought “Gee, that sounds like the Russian revolution”, one regime rising while the previous one falls, and it happens in the fall… not that deep of a double meaning, but it is one nonetheless. Wish I had written this in high school, would have upped my mark in history class, and I probably would have got top marks in the school (darn second place). Yes I am a huge nerd." adds Melanson.

“The Mountain” is a nine-track album mixed by Bretton Melanson, mastered by Christian Donaldson, and the album artwork was done by Angela Grimmuza.

Throughout the album, Nomad confronts personal and societal issues, explores sci-fi worlds, and questions authority. They seamlessly go from soft, clean ballad parts to raging, full-throttle death metal chaos. Drum and guitar solos abound, and the diversity in the vocal styles makes “The Mountain” an exciting and dynamic musical adventure.

A melting pot of different styles and eras, Nomad is recommended for fans of Devildriver, Gojira, and Lamb of God.

“The Mountain” was released on March 3, 2023, and is available on (CD, Digital), Spotify​.
