All Else Fails/Fucktropolis/Suicidal Bride Records/2013 EP Review


  All  Else  Fails  are  a  band  from  Edmonton,  Alberta,  Canada  that h as  been  featured  before  in  this zine  with  a  musical  style  that  mixes  melodic  death  metal  with  hardcore  and  experimental  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  ep  "Fucktropolis"  which  was  released  by  Suicidal  Bride  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  synths  and  programming  bring  a  very  dark  and  atmospheric  sound  to  the  music  bringing  in  elements  of  avant  garde,  classical  and  experimental,  as  for  the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  melodic  death  metal  with  hardcore  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  while  also  adding  in  experimental  parts,  while t he  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  sounding  extreme  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals  range  from  hardcore  style  shouts,  deep  death  metal  growls,  clean  singing  and  spoken  word  parts,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  professional  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  band,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Better  Left  Undead"  and  "Obedience  At  The  Altar  Of  Sacrifice".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
