3 stars Raw, complex and metal!

Another prog met again? Why not! Couple of reasons why people, especially the young generation, like metal-related music or they call it progressive metal style. First, the music contains complexity, heavy riffing and harmonies. Second, some people like it because of its energy, power and speed. Whatever the reason is, this progressive metal genre has become a recent trend. Me too . I like it also. In fact, even in this sub genre, I can find different kind of music styles from Fates Warning with its floating style, Dream Theater with its speed and complexity, Pain of Salvation with its hip-hop as well as floating style, Shadow Gallery which a bit of following the Dream Theater's stream - all of them I enjoy. So, I don't see the reason for not liking this sub genre.

The album lifts off with an instrumental with a bit of raw composition "Soulrain" (2:55) followed with "Stunned To The World" (5:06) which demonstrates raw guitar sounds and riffs. I can confirm that the singing style of the lead singer is similar (sometimes) with Daniel Gildenlow of Pain of Salvation. The music style is not similar as wastefall's music is raw (by design, I believe) especially in guitar mixing. "Empty Haven" (7:19) is a song with many tempo changes and relatively fast tempo." Lullaby For The Gods" (6:40) starts off with an ambient keyboard work followed with mellow music style. I like "Live With It" (5:28) because it has good melody and heavy guitar riffs and raw mixing. "Summerlonging Angels" (4:55) provides nice acoustic guitar work in fills and rhythm style. This song is similar to Dream Theater in style. The epic "Riot Of Oblivion (10:34) is a nice composition blending the heavy parts and a bit of symphonic style at background. I agree that "21" (5:03) is similar with Pain of Salvation with repect to, especially, singing style.

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW

3 stars Wastefall is a very interesting band in my opinion. What often bothers me with smaller, pretty unkown bands, is that the singer very often is to poor to make it worth listening (actually i belive this is a common problem for all progressive music.) Well... Wastefall does not have this problem. D ... (read more)

3 stars We are in Greece. It's a lovely afternoon (13 April 2003) and a school bus is returning from a school trip. Inside the bus there are 49 students from 16 to 18 years old. It's around 19:20 when a truck hits in the side of the bus. The result was having 21 kids dead and 9 people injured. It was ... (read more)

4 stars Wastefall's sophomore album, "Soulrain 21", is given in tribute to the 21 who died in a terrible accident around the time they decided to record another album. The depth and emotion of this is quite apparent in the music, which suggests a meeting of the power and emotion of PAIN OF SALVATION and th ... (read more)
