Musically, “Nothing to Remember” is quite a diverse album. The only instrumental piece on it: Intro (1) is just a spacey-like intro to the song: No Giving In (2), which sounds as a logical continuation of it. Furthermore the main theme of the album’s opening track appear from time to time on this song as well. Stylistically, precisely half of the songs on “Nothing to Remember” represent Classic Doom-Metal of a proto-progressive character. These are No Giving In, Bomb Bottom, Only Human, Higher Tides, Taken Aside, and Pieces (tracks 3, 4, 10, 12, & 6 respectively), though the latter of them contains also the bits of symphonic music. All of these songs are very impressive and highly original, and it would be absolutely pointless to compare the music of 40 Grit to that of Black Sabbath (or any other band). Indeed, Black Sabbath are the Godfathers of most, if not all, of the true Metal-related sub-genres, etc, which, however, by no means implies that most of the Metal-related bands are obviously influenced by them. Back to the album, apart from the riffs and solos of electric guitars and the parts of rhythm section, the instrumental arrangements on the remaining six songs feature also the parts (passages, solos, and rhythms) of either both of acoustic and semi-acoustic guitar or only those of the latter. The episodes featuring exclusively acoustic textures are present on four of them: Because of You, Nothing to Remember, Serenity Reigns, and A Part of Me (7 to 9, & 11). The music on the first two of them, and also on Pull Out (13), represents a real Progressive Doom-Metal with elements of a guitar-based Art-Rock and the bits of Symphonic Art-Rock. The alternation of heavy and light musical structures is typical for Last Time Around and the album’s title track (5 & 8), both of which are about a unique and very well balanced fusion of Progressive Doom-Metal and a guitar-based Art-Rock. The structural analysis of A Part of Me (11) shows that this song doesn’t contain any heavy elements at all and is about an amazing guitar-based Art-Rock with elements of Symphonic Art-Rock. Finally, the passages of synthesizer are recognizable on most of the tracks on the album, while on Intro, Pieces, Last Time Around, A Part of Me, and Pull Out (1, 5, 6, 11, & 13) they are more than merely evident. Summary. Highly recommended to all those who know to whom I speak to, and not only.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely Trumps “”Heads””,
If 40 Grit’s dÃ©but album “”Heads”” didn’t quite grab you, and seemed all too bland (as it did for me) then i strongly urge to check them out again. “”Nothing to Remember”” exhibits a huge a step forward in every way for the band, as every song will grab you and keep your attention. Also, for newcomers looking to get into the band, they should start with this album to get a better idea of how they sound. And if it’s sound your looking for, you’ve got it. Production is excellent and every instrument is fully audible with some excellent low-end. As for what one could compare this to, this is simply metal. No bulls—, no electronics, no synths, just full-on and in-your-face riffs. If you’re looking for a solid heavy record, then you cannot go wrong with 40 Grit’s “”Nothing to Remember””.
5.0 out of 5 stars Someone want to tell me WHY this wasn’t on the radio?,
If you thought Heads was a good album, you’ll like this one too! 40 Grit took 3 years off between recording Heads and the album Nothing To Remember and it shows. It’s almost like they should have had a transition album. The songs are more catchy, which I think is a good thing in this business. Whenever I can’t seem to find something good to listen to, I pop this cd in and *bam* problem solved. My favorite tracks are Because of You, Bomb Bottom, and No Giving In.

5.0 out of 5 stars 40 Grit version 2.0,
40 Grit’s new album “”Nothing to Remember”” is a huge evolution. There almost should have been an album between this one and their first album “”Heads””. But this is an evolution for the better, unlike some bands(STAIND!). This album adds melody and better song structures without sacrificing the heaviness and brutal low end (ESPECIALLY the low end!!) of “”Heads””. “”Bomb Bottom”” is actually the song that introduced me to 40 Grit, and it’s a great, heavy song. “”Only Human”” is another highlight(and the first single), and it’s a great song with a great melody, but without the Staind-esque loss of heaviness. “”Peices”” is absolutely incredible, so good that it has to be heard to be believed. “”Serenity Reigns”” has a great groove, and “”Higher Tides”” has a great, floating melody over said low end heaviness. When listening to this, you wonder why this band isn’t huge right now, because they should be (but instead, they were recently dropped by their label, Metal Blade Records. If Cannibal Corpse weren’t on that label, I’d boycott them). Do something to right this wrong and buy “”Nothing to Remember””.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD,
Compared to their Metal Blade debut CD “”Heads””, 40 Grit’s new album is a huge step forward in both songwriting and execution. This album has it all – huge riffs, memorable choruses and emotional interludes in abundance. Much credit goes to new drummer Andy Green, who adds quite a bit of much-needed energy to the proceedings.
If you like Machine Head and bands of that ilk, check out “”Nothing to Remember””.”
