Dangerkids - Collapse Cover

Bleeding-edge relevant, and a nostalgia trip all in one...

Whether in the swagger of Attila, the bounce of Of Mice & Men or the constant homage paid to the likes of Limp Bizkit, nu metal is swinging back into view. Enter Ohio’s DANGERKIDS, who are providing the link(in park) between ’98 and now with this debut, featuring Andy Bane’s Mike Shinoda-jocking rapping and some skyscraping choruses, as on ‘Hostage’ and the titanic ‘Waking Up’. But it’s their use of modern electronica (‘Unmade’) and metalcore crunch (‘Paper Thin’) that asserts this as bleeding-edge relevant, and there’s enough spark here to suggest they could turn into more than a nostalgia trip.
