ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With an average age of just 18 the exciting young five-piece are ruffling feathers not just on the local scene but at dozens of gig venues across the UK, steadily building a fan-base of thousands and landing a record deal along the way.

With the release of debut mini album Signals, the Watford-based metal outfit are riding the crest of a wave - a wave that shows little sign of coming to an end anytime soon. An incendiary mix of old-school metal and modern, technical heavy rock, the visceral yet thoughtful, often technical sound produced by the guys – apart from being very loud – is enough not only to wake the dead but a bring a grin to even the most unlikely of faces.

“We played in front of more than 3,000 people last week,” explains Jake, the heavily tattooed, immediately likable vocalist.

“It wasn’t a metal thing at all it was more of a community event. We auditioned, somehow got on the bill and the crowd loved us. None of them were really metal fans but we got one of the best reactions of the day.”

Nonetheless, here is FAF’s problem; they are and always will be a niche act, appealing to a necessarily smaller market than many less talented but more successful acts. Mind you, that’s not to say they aren’t bloody good (they are) and doesn’t mean they won’t fulfil they’re evidently hefty potential, because they could well do so.

After all, the Gallows – Watford’s other notable niche export – haven’t done so badly for themselves, have they?

Comparisons between the two are probably as boring as they are unnecessary, save only to mirror a very obvious talent with a boundless enthusiasm and near Stalinist work ethic.

Here is a bunch of guys (Jake, vocals; Tom, lead; George, rhythm, Lewis, bass; and Elliot, drums) formed for just one year with up to 50 gigs under their belts; a bunch of lads touring the country in a convey of knackered, cramped cars and practicing nearly every day – not for money or immediate fame but to improve as a band; to perform to anyone who’ll listen and ensure by force of will that they squeeze everything they can out of what they have .

“I’ve actually lost count of how many gigs we’ve done,” adds whippet-thin drummer Elliott “It’s between 30 and 50 which shows how busy we’ve been.

“We’ve played in London, Manchester, Birmingham – all over the place which has been great experience. It’s a bit unusual for a band of our age but everyone is totally committed to the band.

“None of us are working full-time at the moment because this is what we want to do. We’re not going to university so we’re going to give this everything we have and see where it takes us.”

Quite where that will be is hard, as yet, to tell, put it safe to say FAF, named after a moment of inspiration by a friend’s girlfriend, are on the right track.

“Obviously our dream,” adds Tom, “is to appear in Kerrang and be the biggest band in the world. Obviously the second bit probably won’t happen but we’ve at least made three words in Kerrang in the listings page.”

It’s hard not to like and admire FAF as people. More importantly, it’s hard even (speaking firmly as a 90s indie boy) not enjoy their music. They have the world at their feet and I for one wish them all the best.

Impressive
This is real impressive first release from Fall Against Fate. The intro to the CD is very creative along with the soaring "Safety Means Nothing" which displays some impressive guitar skills. If I were king brings out the more aggressive side of the band it includes one hell of a beatdown and is a very strong track on the CD. It All Looks so grand demonstrates the bands ability to write and perform a killer more melow and emotional song, it includes a really nice vocal part along with the usual epic chorus. Sirens is the first song i heard from this release when it was bought out as a single earlier on in the year, this song is a really powerfull song with an immense riff that brings the song to a stop with an impressive piano piece to slowly fade into the final song. "The Beast" is a very aggresive song with, interesting lyrics, vocals tend to lack in this song but it is still a killer. The extra tracks just prooves why this band deserve a place at the top, "Waters of Asteria" displays some amazing guitar riffs and rad drumming, this song is the most technical song on the CD and really has set the pace for this band. Overall it is a very impressive album, i cannot wait to hear what they come back with when they return. I can see these guys hitting our shores in no time at all.

This CD is ok. Some of the riffs are good but the vocals lack in places. The single is very good.

YUM
