Metal Hammer (UK) - - The Gospel - Ever-evolv­ing melodic hard­core five-piece keep the faith NIK YOUNG

This Minneapoli­s melodic hard­core band have cham­pi­oned a DIY ethic and strong de­vo­tion to God ever since their for­ma­tion in 2011. No Fu­ture serves as a ma­ture and wor­thy third ful­l­length fol­low-up to their de­but, Worn Out, and sopho­more re­lease, When Given Time To Grow. De­spite some line-up changes, in­clud­ing the most re­cent shuf­fle, which saw John Gaskill and Jake Smith join­ing on drums and bass, Con­veyer’s sound stays true to the orig­i­nal path. Just the right amounts of rugged, thought­ful and driven, this spirit-filled band blends fiery pas­sion with an up­beat pace, and per­sis­tent, emo­tional fret­work. Con­veyer’s solidly melodic hard­core back­bone does mean that, while the al­bum is en­gag­ing and co­he­sive, some songs are less mem­o­rable than oth­ers and could do with a bit more va­ri­ety. That said, Daniel Adams’s fiercely con­fi­dent, raw vo­cals play won­der­fully against the more del­i­cate guitar sec­tions, and the ti­tle track, Car­rier and The Whet­stone give the ex­cit­ing im­pres­sion that many of these new tracks are just aching to be played live.
