Nayru is a screamo band from San Diego... and if you have not heard them you are missing out. Rising from the ashes of their last band Malon, Nayru hits you like a fist of anger and sadness. The screams are shrill and high pitched, the riffs are driving, and the emotion is raw. Recollections starts off right away with "Memories" which comes at you harshly before a nice melodic lull that gives you just enough time to breath before shoving you back in. It continues on switching between some emo-violence-y songs along side some more twinkly ones. One stand out track would be "Ghost Dance" with a haunting riff that slowly unfolds into a explosive climax before returning to that haunting riff you have come to love at that point. Recollections comes to a close with a treat for anyone who has been following the members through their musical history ;) Recollections by Nayru is a amazing album start to finish, So go listen to it.
