Nonpoint and P.O.D. round out the year in Greensboro

The iconic duo of P.O.D. and Nonpoint came through Cone Denim, and it was the energetic reset we needed to get through the rest of the year.

A trip down memory lane, with stops at frequently played singles and B-sides we forgot about, was just what Greensboro needed.

Opening for the night was Islander, a local metal band who are more or less livin’ the dream. Signed with Victory Records, Islander have been the poster child of the South Carolina music scene. With two EP’s and two full lengths under their belt, the bands has shared stages with the likes of Linkin Park, Seether, Papa Roach, Slipknot, and now P.O.D. and Nonpoint. It won’t be long before they become an iconic headliner for the local bands.

Southern gents P.O.D. are already known for their energy, while Nonpoint is notorious for freshening up crowd favorites. It’s easy to place P.O.D. in the Christian nu metal genre, like so many do, but they are the kind of band who tends to dabble in any and all genres.

They are unaware of musical boundaries, and yet make each song distinctively P.O.D. They’ve been in the music scene for over twenty years, meaning this boundaryless circle they’ve placed themselves in is thriving, even in 2018. With ten records on their resume, the band has recorded ups, downs, triumphs, and heartbreak. As a result, fans have shared many a time with P.O.D., Greensboro being no different.

Nonpoint could be categorized in the same way, with no sense of musical boundaries, but they are in a league of their own. Florida rockers Nonpoint are on the brink of a hiatus, planning to return in 2019 to packed venues.

They plan to finish this tour along with another handful of shows with Puddle Of Mudd. Their latest, The Poison Red, peaked at number two on several charts, including Hard Rock and Independent Albums. Songs from this album, along with other crowd favorites, were serenaded to the crowd in the only way Nonpoint knows how.
