Damn, DEADFALL — You Pretty!

Jaded on the djent movement, yeah? I hear about the explosion, but honestly listen to little of it. And folks, we get sent dozens of bands every month. I’m not sure if that speaks more to the genre’s (un)popularity or the breadth of other heavy music available, but apart from the TesseracT album earlier this year, the upcoming Animals as Leaders, and the imminent crush-all from Meshuggah, I’m not expecting much. Quantity-wise, that is.

Deadfall is the brainchild of Berkelee smartypants Eddie Kim, who wrote, produced, recorded, performed guitar, programmed drums, engineered, mastered, and — I dunno — catered? Man, good of him to get bassist Sean Dusoe in there for balance. Control much? I know the feeling….

On another note, earlier today, I said this line:  “I’m not so much into genres as I am certain bands.”  I guess that makes sense here, because something about New Light really hits a sweet spot. Maybe it’s the waning dawn (shit, have I been up all night again?) or maybe it’s cuz I grew up 77 miles north of their hometown Woosta, but I think you’ll agree that, when it comes to weaving delicacies around the dirges, Deadfall did their homework. Just wait until the crescendo in “Utopia” — consider paradise found. And don’t skip to the end, cheaters, you’ll miss the point.

Here’s the kinda cheap-looking diaphonous album art (also by Kim), track listing, and FREE download at their Bandcamp! It’s also available on got-djent.com.

  2. May I simply say what a comfort to find somebody who genuinely understands what they’re talking about on the
    internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    A lot more people must read this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you’re not more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.

  3. They’re all stressed, then usually something changes – and they snap
    out of it and start hitting again. What are the
    things that you do that he isn’t interested in, and vice versa.

    As soon as the grounded weeks were up, Alex’s mother wanted to talk about Rosedale.
