Quite simply, Doppelganger is one of the best math-rock/post hardcore albums ever. It is an energetic, life-loving but violent compendium of smoking, lightning fast tunes which kick you in the groin and run away cackling and waving their arms in the air.

Fall of Troy are clearly very musically competent, able to pull off schizophrenic time changes, face melting guitar breaks and gut wrenching hardcore breakdowns with flair and originality. You may have heard the infectiously dancable "FCPREMIX" on Guitar Hero - radio friendly but still a brilliantly structured and very catchy song.

Fall of Troy really get down to buisness however, when it comes to tracks like "You got a death wish, Johnny truant?" (a quote from house of leaves, a book I highly recommend). Frontman Thomas Erak's throat ripping screeches and soaring, nasal vocals drive the song forward from a fantastic intro to a frantic, triplet laced climax. Some of the best moments on this album are when the pace shifts from frantic, complex time changes to almost groovy, regular time with catchy melodies and wicked guitar licks.

"Laces out Dan" is up there amongst the best in this album, with a guitar riff which conjures up images of blazing buildings and a breakdown which makes your fists clench and your soul long for breakable items. However the true diamond in this cavernous album of gems is the interestingly titled "Whacko Jacko steals the Elephant Man's bones"......

..... wow. basically, this song is the purest, most beautiful and awe inspiring musical form of violence I have ever heard. As it develops it yearns, searches, reaches out into the unknown, doubtlessly for things to smash with its terrifying arsenal of sizzling, slamming guitar work, diaphragm breaking bellows and sky rending harmonies.

That's 4.5-stars :)

But seriously - I'm amazed these guys are a 3-piece because they really are SICK!

The guitar work is relentless and drums and bass are as tight with it!
If I was forced to make a comparision then the best I can think of would be a messier Mars Volta or a more constructed Dillingers Escape Plan!!

It's a great party album. With some really monster riffs and some seriously wicked time-changes. I honestly fail to find a bad tune on this album, and the production, although not amazing, is perfect for its style.

If you like it hard and fast with lots of sudden and complicated changes then I highly recommend this album!

Incidently they've been touring with a band called "Shots Fired" which are a great all out rock band.

Awesome pretty much sums this up in its entirety. Its relentless in life, energy and technical skill. If you like this kind of music, then the fall of troy represent the best there is.

well, this album is good, for me its a better version of the blood brothers, i must be honest i only have this album from fall of troy, i dont own their previous ones, but this one is pretty good, listen to each song individually its amazing, but all at once it gets bit annoying after a while, but its a good album and i would recommend it to anyone who is into that type of music. 4 out of 5, thats 80%, i'd be happy :-)
