NDE - _Falling_
by: Adam Wasylyk (3 out of 5)
Ohio's NDE (which stands for Near Death Experience) on their self-produced CD play heavily Pantera-influenced metal with heavy riffs and the occasional thrash beat. Their guitar sound very much reminded me of Righteous Pigs' in terms of their production sound, while the actual riffing reminded me of Pantera (the opening riff of "Angry Song" reeks of them!). The vocals by Bob Reinard sound like a harsher Phil Anselmo which are accompanied by the very rare death growl. The songs "Stench" and "No Tomorrow" were my favorites while most of the other tracks sounded too much like someone else other than NDE. The CD layout is very professional, done as well as any indie label could do. Having played with bands like Crisis, Incantation, Stuck Mojo and Cannibal Corpse, it shows that the band have worked on getting their name out to metal fans in their area. Now it's time that NDE work on writing more original material, as what is evidenced on _Falling_ sounds too close to a thrash metal version of Pantera.
