4.0 out of 5 stars If you like Killswitch Engage, you'll love Shadows Fall, 27 Mar. 2004
This review is from: The Art Of Balance (Audio CD)
If you're one of the growing number of fans who are coming to appreciate the talents of the excellent Killswitch Engage, you'll almost certainly like their friends Shadows Fall. Similar in style to their more illustrious counterparts, they are in fact probably the finer of the two bands. With a style that incorporates elements from Melodic Death Metal, Thrash and good old traditional Heavy Metal, Shadows Fall are an awesome proposition. If you imagine the best bits of At The Gates, In Flames, Metallica and of course their buddies KSE put in a blender, the results would sound just like Shadows Fall. Thats not a bad mixture in anyone's book. The most notable point in their armoury is the use of a three-vocalist lineup. The main singer is Brian Fair, and he does a magnificent job, as he can scream, shout, growl and also sing properly. However, guitarists Matt Bachand and Jon Donais contribute their own vocals as well, leading to an interesting, unique sound. Every song on this album is a cracker but special mentions have to go to 'Thoughts Without Words' and 'Stepping Outside The Circle' which are simply awesome pieces of modern Metal. So in conclusion, if you like your music with a hint of tunefulness and melody but as hard as nails, Shadows Fall are the band for you. Absolutely superb stuff.
