Nonpoint is an American Heavy Metal band formed in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1997. Known for their very modern, melodic sound, the band has frequently had run-ins with the 'sellout' label, although they are not a very well-known band. Despite this, the band has received critical acclaim for their work, and remains one of their genre's underrated talents. The band's sound has been compared to the likes of early Linkin Park, Machine Head, Soil, and even P.O.D. among others. The band's debut album, Statement, didn't receive much attention from the metal community, but due to the success of their sophomore release Development, they gained a bit of recognition. Both albums were very well-received.Discography:
- Statement (2000)
- Development (2002)
- Recoil (2004)
- To the Pain (2005)
- Vengeance (2007)

- Loudness War: The Return is much louder than all of their other albums.
