All Else Fails are a band from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada that has 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 the 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.
