All Idols Fall

Standing On The Brink

March 2nd, 2008 · post by jas · Make a comment

Record label: Deck Cheese Records

At the time of writing, this lot are on tour with Anti-Flag, and I expected them to be some kind of poppy punk thing in the same vein. Nope. They are heavier than that, and the guitars are a bit more prominent. The album chugs, whines and thuds along at a fair old pace and drops you straight into the middle of it with opener ‘Resonate’.

I was surprised to read that the band has only been together six months, as this release is out on Deck Cheese Records, and they have already toured with A Wilhelm Scream. However, I wasn’t so surprised to find out the members have come from other bands, as the music is so tight already – when title track ‘The Brink’ gets into its stride it’s catchy and relentless.

All Idols Fall have a ton of energy, and although I have to admit this EP wasn’t quite my cup of tea, it’s probably worth a listen for fans of bands like Rise Against and Strike Anywhere.
