Dayshell - Nexus

You're in for a pretty rocking time if you like bands like TesseracT, my friend.Falling into the vein of great progressive groove machines like TesseracT is the compelling sound of Dayshell. This Southern California trio does an admirable job of crafting heavy but lyrical rhythms that are melodic but also shake the floor of the house, and I am loving it.

I have to mention my boy Jordan Wooley, whose bass work is fantastic. It's not Billy Sheehan pyrotechnics, it's just motherfucking bedrock, man. Like it's the meat in this delicious metal sandwich and I can't get enough of the tasty tone he posseses. Seriously, it's a great part of the overall mix. Which doesn't mean to say the rest of the trio are slouchers. Lead vocalist and guitarist Shayley “Dayshell” Bourget is part of the reason for the obvious comparison to TesseracT vis-à-vis singer Ashe O'Hara

The Bottom Line: In Dayshell you have sort of a cross between the melody and power of Tesseract with the thrilling aggressiveness of Sevendust. Do not fear this power. Take it in. They will requite your love.

- Genghis wonders if he should have ended this review like he did with a Hamlet quote...
