This is going to be easy for me, I can tell you that from the start of this album. Metalcore, at its finest. Condemned By Faith out of Blue Mountain, MS. The album starts with a strong spoken message on top of a well written clean guitar track. Chills from the top.
The album takes off with the track “Limitless”. Nice leads and some solid drumming. The riffage in the track is plentiful with amazing groove that just never seems to get tiresome. I’m not a huge fan of the screaming vocals in this particular track, but the clean vocals in the chorus, the cleans really pull this track together.
Throughout the album, the guitarists keep it hard hitting, solid, and new. I love guitarists in bands with diversity, it’s becoming rare. The drums groove every step of the way. The bassist doesn’t have a ton of front time but it’s just as solid. With every metalcore album you expect breakdowns, some are as I would expect and some caught me off guard. The track “Pale Horse” surprised me the most with a very unique style then adding lead to it.
“Falling” hits just as hard as any other metalcore album you’ll find, if not harder. Throughout the album the screaming vocals are really a “hit or miss” for me, but don’t let that take away from any of these tracks. This album has great replay value and hope I get to catch these guys live very soon.
