Deepfall
“Awaken”
This debut release from Greenville band Deepfall is a creative concoction that blurs the lines between hard rock and metal. Listeners might think they know what they’re in for when they hear the pounding opening guitars of “Wasted,” but it quickly becomes clear that this album is more than just a straightforward riff-fest (which still would’ve been enjoyable). It paints a picture of a dedicated rock band finding its voice. At times, it recalls the dramatic, soaring choruses of early 2000s post-grunge rock bands such as Shinedown; at others, it invokes the heavier spirit of Avenged Sevenfold or the catchier pop sensibility of Three Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin. Several searing guitar solos make the record stand out from other contemporary hard rock acts, and vocalist Rich Hopkins tactfully pairs rough yet melodic rock vocals with the occasional scream to push the band into heavier territory. “Out of Line” puts drummer Jim Sully in the spotlight, and it showcases a band effortlessly communicating on the same wavelength through various rhythmic changes. Songs like “M.F.K.S. (Voice of the Broken)” broaden the sonic landscape a bit with eerie synths and a full-fledged metal breakdown, with Hopkins even throwing in a few growls before launching into the final chorus. The lyrics feel ambiguous yet deeply personal throughout, playing a major role in tracks such as “Ghost,” which masquerades as an acoustic ballad before launching into what’s easily the heaviest track on the album. One day, these guys might be touring the nation, but for now, they’re carving their own path in the rock world – and who knows how far that might take them. – Devin Dely - Local Spins

Bio

DEEPFALL conjures an enveloping storm of carefully crafted hard rock that strikes the soul with stinging honesty.

Cutting to the bone with soaring instrumental passages, spirited choruses, and precisely placed breakdowns, the band thrives in the expanse of rock ’n’ roll’s vast sub-genres.

Masterfully capturing thematic darkness, the band leaves a sonic trail of scorched post-apocalyptic earth behind its musical machine, blazing a path through the heaviness of life with an equally heavy response.

Situated in Greenville, Michigan, the group’s current lineup, which began to take shape in 2015, is comprised of Rich Hopkins (vocals/guitar), James Sullivan (drums), Tim King (keyboards), Anthony Schnobel (lead guitar), and Taylor Brandt (bass).

In a short time, DEEPFALL has carved its place in the American rock scene with broad, muscular soundscapes forged in the studio and resurrected onstage. The band’s latest release, “Awaken” employs a signature brand of soulful songwriting rounded out by an unapologetic combination of surging guitars, rattling bass, mesmerizing keyboards, heavy drums and Hopkins’ roaring lead vocals.

Behind the veil of these ferocious soundscapes, DEEPFALL emerges as an outfit of determined musicians with a deep love for their craft and a hope to connect with listeners through engaging story-driven rock.

DEEPFALL has supported national acts such as Hinder, SOiL, Tantric, Smile Empty Soul, Saving Abel, The Iron Maidens, Texas Hippie Coalition, and Wayland, while having performed at venues such as The Intersection, The Stache, and The Music Factory. The band continues to play regionally, write new music, and keep its collective foot pressed down on the gas pedal towards endless possibility.
