Melodic death metal has always had a special place in my heart with bands like Amon Amarth completely getting my attention with the melody and brutally that’s incorporated into the genre. And sometimes a change is welcome to shake the mix up just a little bit to make it more fresh and not the same recycled sound that’s been used a million times. In the case of Sense of Fall’s new album, “Fallen Statues”, that change is a set of female vocals. Yes, yes I know! “Arch Enemy is female fronted too, dumbass.” Well just fucking bare with me here! A female fronted melodic death metal band isn’t something you see every other day is my point. They’re different. They’re not as common. They bring a welcome mix up of the elements of the genre and thensome. “Fallen Statues” has a great line up of 5 tracks that show versatility in all tracks albeit I think the first track lacked the sheen and sparkle that all others had, but I digress. The guitars in “Fallen Statues” isn’t what I would call particularly brutal, but they do have a very nice sound and melody throughout the entire EP along with the steady, intense beat of the drums. While I can’t say that Sense of Fall really blew my mind with “Fallen Statues”, it’s definitely something that a lot of other people can enjoy because this is just the shit for them. A combo of smooth vocals, intense vocals, hard guitars, and smashing drums; Sense of Fall is just what some people are looking for if they want to shake up their daily dose of melodic death metal for sure.
