review by Cale Ward

Disconnected is the new full-length album from Nothing Left, a band signed with Facedown Records. Nothing Left is a supergroup comprised of Danon Saylor on lead vocals, Ryan and Brandon Leitru on guitars, Alex Camarena on drums, and Devin Henderson on bass. All of these members come from other bands, and this fact really shines through in their style. With the vast experience of all the different members coming together from different bands, they have made Disconnected really something special.

The album has a very grounded sound through the whole thing — the kind of sound that makes you think of having a great time in the pit. Due to the already-vetted musical knowledge of each individual member, they know exactly the rhythm of what a good a hardcore song needs: something easily digestible by a crowd and great to jump around and scream at the top of your lungs to. There is something so simple to the sound of Disconnected that really just puts a smile on your face and gets your head banging.

With delightfully in-your-face vocals and not too terribly complex riffs or solos, Disconnected is unapologetically familiar and a joy to crank to eleven. Disconnected is an album that will take you back to the day when you were just an angsty teen against the world, and I love it for that. Having only nine tracks and a runtime of about 26 minutes, it makes a perfect album to get you pumped for your workday during your commute or perhaps on your way to the in-laws. With this album, I am sure Nothing Left is now on many people’s radars; they are certainly on mine.
