Brisbane power metal outfit (of which we’re big fans) As Paradise Falls return with their blistering new single Star Blind. Punching, doused in theatricality and a pumping insistence – it’s another shining example just how impressive home grown talent is!
Go, Aussie, Go!
About ’em (via Facebook): The release of their 2014 EP ‘Save Yourself’ broke into the iTunes Metal charts at #5 & their debut music video for ‘Equilibrium’ smashing over 10,000 views in the first week of its arrival, its safe to say this is a band not to be underestimated.
Storming the country on their first national tour with Molotov Solution (USA) at the end of 2014 and following that up with a tour to New Zealand, As Paradise Falls set the bar high with their high intensity live show and drive to breach all expectations.
In November 2015, while As Paradise Falls came towards the end of recording their debut album at Karma Sound Studios in Thailand – the band were invited to support I Killed the Prom Queen in Bangkok. Tragically, the night before the show, guitarist Glen Barrie suddenly passed away in his sleep, leading to a halt in progress to give each member time to grieve the loss of their brother.
With a renewed drive and passion for their music and the band as a whole, 2017 brings back a reformed yet determined As Paradise Falls carrying an album full of their best work and the late Glen Barrie’s best work.
The band are due to release a new album with new members, Shaun Coar on vocals and Jimmy Upson, who was recently announced as the new guitarist.
Their previous EP, Save Yourself, is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and more now and Digital Ritual will be available in 2017 as part of their coming LP.
