"Thrill Of Falling 2012 EP Review"

We all have bad days. We get frustrated by work, school or general society, and when that happens there is absolutely nothing better than hard music: that deep, heavy, feel-it-in-your-gut kind of rock that shakes your soul and makes everything better. When it comes right down to it, this is exactly what Thrill of Falling does. They rock. They show passion, talent and real depth, and their new self-titled EP is the answer to every type of pain and frustration.

To be officially released October 27, Thrill of Falling’s EP will get a lot of attention. It’s five tracks of nostalgia, full of nu-metal and progressive rock which would feel very much at home in the late ’90s and early 2000s. They have that sound that has created legions of passionate music fans — including musicians, promoters, and yes, reviewers — and their EP will find a permanent home with people who grew up in the ’90s and whose lives have been shaped by alternative music.

The tracks themselves are complex, powerful and intense. The opening track, “April”, is a great intro to what’s to come: heavy from the start, the album gets your head bopping in a way only heavy music can. At times they’re moodily atmospheric, bringing out elements of Tool in “My Turn” and “The Darkness” with haunting vocals, dense guitars and dextrous bass, and they effectively use vocal harmonies in most of the tracks (listen to the chorus of “Farewell” for an example) to create the album’s overall anguished tone. This isn’t the most “upbeat” album, but it’s not supposed to be: Thrill of Falling is mellow, mighty and serious, and they’re best listened to when you’re feeling the same way.

Other notable band comparisons include Deftones, Incubus, Disturbed and Chevelle, or maybe a journey through them all. Fans of these bands will love Thrill of Falling, and in a heavy mood they’ll be exactly what you want.

Stream and download the EP on Bandcamp or ReverbNation, or better yet, pick it up in person. The EP will be officially released October 27 at Calgary’s Blind Beggar Pub, and if you’re in the area you can’t miss this show. Check out Thrill of Falling’s website for more info, follow them on Facebook and Twitter and pay attention to them. Bands like Thrill of Falling do more than make music: they touch lives, they create passion, and with a sound that actually means something, they’re going to go far. - Indie 403

Calgary based rock act Thrill Of Falling was formed in the summer of 2010 and have been going strong since.  

With a mission to revive hard rock, they weave a colorful blend of distorted guitars, chugging bass riffs, hard-hitting drums and melodic vocals. To hear Thrill Of Falling music is to hear a pop-minded modern spin on 90's rock. Performing sold out shows, they have their sights set on advancement with bigger and better shows for their fans. 

Thrill Of Falling has recently completed the recording of a brand new E.P. Utilizing professional vocal training and band coaching, they plan to take their carefully crafted live show on the road to spread the word - beginning with their Alberta home and working outward.
