High-octave vocalizing that sways aloft, melting into the perfectly synchronized thrumming of metal is Nexus. Dayshell has the uncanny skill of capturing tension in music by inciting adrenaline and urging the mind into action.
Each track stimulates nerve-endings within the body, igniting the need to move, and creating a restlessness only sated by physical exertion. Dayshell’s album has annihilated the ability to remain stagnant. Whether the release is done by banging your head, clenching your fists, or screaming with burning lungs, tracks like “A New Man” destroy dormancy.
Nexus incites the mental riot of passion and angst. It simmers on anxiousness and boils a craving for live music. Even the softly controlled tracks, such as “Rush Hour,” deliver energy vibrating falsettos and the signature “Shay-shout” that twists a word into a dynamic scream to fall creamily among the technical instrumentals.
Dayshell has delivered raw inventiveness and displayed it in a plethora of blazing tracks. “The Weapon” has shredded their boundaries of their musical range and “Low Light” overturned the expected dynamics with a drumming lead and distinctive melody.
Nexus provokes a metaphysical reaction to the parts we bury; expect to be exposed.
