Founded in 2006, All Else Fails, the aggressive dark metal act hailing from Alberta, Canada is releasing their second EP, The Forever Lie, on February 17, 2017. Their Fucktropolis EP, released in 2013, earned them great credibility among national touring acts as they supported The Vans Warped Tour and Boonstock. Their new seven-song EP is a big package in small wrapping paper.
Starting off the record is “Beneath the Waves,” which is within the realms of an As I Lay Dying and Five Finger Death Punch cross breed. It immediately hits with mysterious riffs, timely double bass, and phenomenal pitch in high to low vocal levels. The title track, “The Forever Lie,” is an amazing work of art, providing lyrical content and range that makes it seem this band has been together 20 years.
Available now is the video of their first single “The Sons of Plenty” via GearGods.
