With a name like “Heavy The Fall” you’d expect a hard rocking sound, and that’s exactly what you’ll get. So hard, in fact, the drummer from Anthrax wanted to be a part of it. Not only did Charlie Benante produce their last EP, he played on all five tracks. Their own drummer, Jason Delismon, is no slouch and was recognized with a sponsorship by Vic Firth.
Their music doesn’t bang you in the eardrums, though. Lead vocalist Daniel Graunke’s voice reminded me of Mindsight singer Aaron’s clear and passionate sound. No wonder – at last weekend’s Mobfest I found out they’re brothers.
Heavy The Fall’s second CD, also produced by Benante, will be released at an all-ages Metro show on July 19. Since it’s also a Mindsight CD release show you’ll get to see the siblings in action. Add On The Front, Janus, and Sudden Dark (and free entry before 6pm) and this is a show that shouldn’t be missed.
