Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with some blast beats, while the violins bring an orchestra, classical and atmospheric feel to the music in addition there is a small amount of piano being used on the recording, as for the bass playing it has a powerful tonwe with some heavy riffing.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast riffs that mixes metal core with death metal with a great amount of melody being thrown in, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding leads and solos, as for the accoustic guitars they bring a modern rock feel to the music.
Vocals range from metal core growls that have some death and black metal influences as well as a good amount of clean singing and some ocassional spoken word passages, while the lyrics cover how corrupt the world is, as for the production it has a very powerful, professional and heavy sound to it.
In my opinion All Else Fails is a very good and original sounding band that has a style of their own, and if you are looking for a death metal influenced metal core band that has their own sound, you should check out this album.
