"...most of it works a treat."

More As Paradise Falls More As Paradise Falls

Straight up and down, meat and potatoes thrash metal has become as stale as three-week-old bread in this day and age, so bands pursuing a thrash style must inject elements from leftfield to maintain interest. And that's exactly what these Brissie lads do.

As Paradise Falls pursue a groove-based thrash-metal style, but shake things up with tasteful use of moody dynamics, occasional clean vocals and more progressive arrangements and instrumentation. And most of it works a treat.

This band have only been around for a few years, but they've already made a big impact with their slamming sounds and willingness to do things a little differently.
