I’ve seen the Richmond hardcore band Downfall play a medium-sized membership and a small lounge, and I really feel snug saying that they crush in just about each scenario. Downfall’s entire type is uneven, heavy down-the-middle hardcore. They aren’t making an attempt to place any new form of spin on the ball; they’re simply making an attempt to throw it as onerous as they will. A band like that's finest skilled stay, the place they will trigger complete pandemonium, however Downfall are additionally adequate to seize a few of that ferocity on file. As we speak, you get to listen to it for your self.
Downfall launched a demo in 2017 and an EP in 2019, and now they’ve lastly gotten round to releasing an LP. The band’s full-length debut Behind The Curtain won't waste your time; it clocks in at a brisk and environment friendly 17 minutes. However that’s sufficient time to essentially get misplaced in these huge, bodily riffs. Downfall recorded the album with Bob Quirk, who’s additionally produced current data from Enforced and Destruct, and each breakdown lands onerous. We’ve already posted the early single “Primitive Actuality,” and now you possibly can hear the entire thing beneath.
