There’s something here with Los Angeles-based band, Fall of Man. It’s heavy, crushing, intense, powerful, and really good. It feels like strange mix that’s part thrash metal combined with elements of modern , something else more melodic, and storytelling vocals like Dio or Iron Maiden. Check out the for “Lullaby” to see what I mean.
The track comes off the band’s latest EP, Hallways and Doors.
Frontwoman Erica Barile explains the theme behind “Lullaby”:
Lullaby is about my own experience with spiritual warfare — specifically in the form of evil, demonic dreams. I had those types of dreams ever since I was a small child and they intensified up ’til just a few years ago. Both the song and video represent the process I’ve gone through to gain the upper hand over those evil, demonic forces.
About Fall of Man:
Several months after Mike and G started jamming together, Ben Reiss (bassist) joined the band. The three of them remained an all-instrumental act until 2012. While in the process of searching for a lead vocalist, Erica Barile jumped in to lay melodies over some of their tracks. After a few rehearsals, things started falling into place – she’s been their front woman ever since.
Ben Reiss made his exit in 2013 and shortly after Dan Scala became Fall Of Man’s bassist.
Fall Of Man played their first show at the City National Grove of Anaheim, followed by performances at The Whisky A Go Go, House Of Blues Sunset Strip, and Canyon Club. They’ve opened for acts including Rhapsody of Fire, OTEP, One-Eyed Doll, James Durbin, and Amorphis.
