Rise And Fall's "Faith" receives 8 OUT OF 10

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Belgium’s Rise And Fall are set to release their newest album Faith on Deathwish Inc. This is the bands’ fourth full length in their ten years as a band. “A Hammer And Nails” begins the album quickly and fiercely before slowing the tempo down at the end of the track leading into a sludgy intro on “Deceiver”. The guitarists may stay in the distorted chugging guitar range for the most part, but when they go undistorted they are highly impressive and actually talented. One of the standout tracks is when the tempo is slowed down on “Things Are Different Now” read more

Possessed with an earth shaking heaviness and alarming "no frills" punk urgency, Belgium's Rise And Fall are the next chapter of true hardcore/punk greatness.

Rise And Fall sharpened their teeth with their debut album, "Hellmouth" in 2004 (SA Mob/JTTP). "Hellmouth" showed a raw ferocity that few bands hold. Capturing the attention of many, Rise And Fall soon after found themselves on tour with Converge, The Great Deceiver, and others in Europe. After that landmark tour, Rise And Fall shed members only to evolve into a revamped, recharged musical monster. After months of grueling work with the new lineup, Rise And Fall released their "Into Oblivion" album in 2005 (Deathwish/Reflections). Recorded at CCR Studios and later mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge) at Godcity Studios, "Into Oblivion" captured the kind of emotional darkness and white knuckle violence that few bands ever artistically achieve. "Into Oblivion" was praised by aggressive music connoisseurs worldwide, propelling Rise And Fall to the forefront of the hardcore community. The band followed the release with their "Clawing" 7"EP in 2007, a release also held in high regard by the fledging hardcore masses.

In the last few years, Rise And Fall have been tirelessly touring the world over. Sharing stages worldwide with Converge, Integrity, Coliseum, THe Hope Conspiracy, Ceremony, Have Heart, Shipwreck a.d., and many more of hardcore's elite artists. Even performing at most major hardcore and metal festivals worldwide.

Four years since the release of "Into Oblivion", Rise And Fall have now completed their circle. On October 27th, Rise And Fall will release their highly anticipated new album "Our Circle Is Vicious" on Deathwish.

Recorded at God City studios by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Disfear), "Our Circle Is Vicious" is Rise And Fall's rightful return to the throne as the kings of dark, ominous hardcore. From the opening barrage of "Soul Slayer" and "Built On Graves" the evolution of Rise And Fall is absolutely stunning. Heavier and harder than ever, it quickly becomes apparent that every aspect of their musicianship has grown leaps and bounds in recent years. Guitarist Cedric Goetgebuer balances bone shattering heaviness and unorthodox melodies unlike any other musician today. Bringing each song to post-apocalyptic life with an electrifying intensity. All of this is complimented by Bjorn Dossche's emotional vocal outpouring as it spills across the album with unforgettable realness. Rise And Fall continue this musical battery throughout, however it is when they unleash the dynamic "In Circles" and the epic closer "Knowing" that the true scope of their creative vision sinks its teeth in. Both songs utterly haunting, moving, and unpredictable in their unique twists and turns. Blurring the divisions and dismissing the limitations that exist within much of contemporary heavy music.

All in all, Rise And Fall's "Our Circle Is Vicious" is a stunning artistic achievement. One that will surely cast a shadow over the aggressive music world for many years to come.
