Bless The Fallen - The Eclectic Sounds Of A City Painted Black and White
By Dave SynyardWell, I have good news and bad news. Let’s get the bad news out of the way first: the recording quality is terrible and takes away from the debut album from this New York five-piece. It’s not polished; it’s not clear; and it’s not helping this album strive to reach the heights it deserves. Now, on to the good news: The Eclectic Sounds Of A City Painted Black and White is an album that could have been made six years ago in Burlington, ON when Grade’s Headfirst Straight To Hell first poked its head out of the sand. These boys rely on their menacing guitar work, which exploits metal in a post-hardcore atmosphere. With an album that constantly combines wicked metal guitar licks and hyper-eclectic drumming with no end in sight, Bless The Fallen have a sound that’s a fun, nostalgic metal fight. Drummer Phil should be proud of his work, as it’s an enjoyable contribution that adds to the overall impeccable impression that has been made here.
