Ready, Set, Fall are a quite new and young band from Italy. On their first album, they are cooking with ingredients like Metalcore, Modern Metal and melodic Death Metal. The final product is a coherent, always rough and heavy sounding metal melange. Growled vocals and blast beats dominate in the verses, while the choruses feature clean vocals with more melodic guitars. And the good and clean production does its share to the overall very positive impression.
But when listening to “Momento” more often, the record reveals some weaknesses. The scheme described above is used throughout the whole album (more or less), leading to the fact that all songs are soon predictable. Also, there are hardly any good hooklines in the choruses, which stick to the listener`s mind. Some more variation in terms of tempo and rhythm would have been nice, too. And last but not least, there are also three non-starters: “Is This A Happy Ending?”, “Meri Maat” und “Tidal Waves Could Save The World”.
Ready, Set, Fall did a nice first album, although there are some points of criticism. So, everybody who likes genres like the ones mentioned above, should check the band out.
