Rock Until We Fall

Rated 3.43/5 (68.57%) (7 Votes)

Well, this is certainly original in concept. This 7" single contains two songs, but they are the same except for the mastering – one version mastered by Chrisafis Tantanozis and one by Chris Tsangarides (who worked on albums by Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Anvil etc... he's the British producer that the band meets in Anvil! The Story of Anvil.) I can't really pick a favorite between the two versions...

Another original part is the number of musicians: 22. That's right. One song with 22 musicians playing on it. So in just under 6 minutes you get treated to a lot of variety, be it vocal-wise (all clean, ranging from aggressive to near-operatic, and even one that wants to growl a little but stops short) or musically where you'll hear the various players beat this song into submission, with anything from barebones Heavy Metal to cheery, speedy Power Metal. The song is very upbeat, very positive-sounding and doesn't pause at all, energetic from beginning to end, though the last few seconds are just the multitude of vocalists singing together while the instruments have fallen quiet. Cool song overall, though a bit over the top at times – the ending isn't something I'd blast in the car with the windows open. :) Interesting, weird release to say the least.
