Deathface Fall of Man

Deathface Fall of Man
Johnny Love might be onto something with his aggressive mix of dubstep, house and metal. The man behind Deathface is back with his second EP, Fall of Man, after the release of The Horror last spring. Love emerged on the party scene in Chicago before heading to Los Angeles to form the now-defunct Guns N' Bombs, eventually ending up in Charlotte, NC, where Deathface took shape and finally emerged. The six-track EP is a frenzied combination of solid dubstep beats that morph into ravenous, frantic drum assaults. "Blood Rave" is the tamest of the tracks, sticking to more traditional dubstep patterns. "Gift of Fury" employs choppy breaks and heavy double kick, while "Sick of It" moves more towards the metal end of the spectrum, with chaotic vocals courtesy of Adri Law, a near match for the howls of Crystal Castles' Alice Glass.
